Divorce and Property Division

There are few life events more impactful than divorce. Along with the emotional impact of separating a family, divorce carries important financial implications.


These are not issues to try and navigate alone. It is important to consult an experienced attorney to learn about your rights. From property division to maintenance and child support issues, we have experience handling many types of cases, including:

  • Divorce
  • Legal Separation
  • Common Law Marriage
  • Same Sex Marriage

An important aspect of ending a marital relationship is reaching an equitable property division. Colorado courts use the principle of equitable distribution, we can help you determine what that means in your case and advocate for a fair distribution.

Maintenance is awarded in many cases; however, it is not automatic. Whether a judge will grant spousal maintenance depends on a factual determination where the court considers factors including the length of the marriage, earning potential of each spouse, and the asset division.

Parental Rights and Responsibilities and Child Support

We take a family-centered approach to issues concerning minor children. We work with parents to develop parenting plans and decision-making agreements that ensure the well-being of the children. We tirelessly advocate for the best possible results.


Child support is the right of the child in Colorado, intended to aid in the care and upbringing of the child. As part of the allocation of parental rights and responsibilities, we work to determine what amount of child support is appropriate given the other factors in your case.

If there has been a substantial change in parenting time or income of the parties since a prior child support order, parents can modify the child support order. Our attorneys can help you determine if this may be appropriate in your case.
