Conflicts We Can Help You Solve
- Allocation of parental responsibilities/child custody: The term “child custody” is no longer used in the Colorado statutes, and in its place is “allocation of parental responsibilities.” There are two main components to parental responsibilities; one is the division of parenting time, and the other is the sharing of decision-making. We will ensure the courts consider the best needs of your child when determining how parental responsibilities will be allocated.
- Child support: We will review proposed child support orders and confirm the calculations are based on all relevant income, as well as Colorado’s Child Support Guidelines.
- Spousal maintenance or alimony: Depending on the circumstances of each party, one spouse may be ordered to pay spousal maintenance. We will help you determine if you or your ex-spouse qualifies for spousal maintenance and, if so, how much should be paid and for how long.
- Asset division. Colorado is an “equitable distribution” state, meaning that in a divorce, the court will allocate property between the two spouses equitably and fairly. However, that does not imply a 50/50 split. This can lead to complexities based on the unique set of circumstances of each case.
- Post-divorce enforcement and modifications: We can help you take legal action if your ex-spouse is not following the terms of your divorce decree or judgment. Alternatively, if your family’s circumstances have unforeseeably changed, we can help you address modifications of your divorce decree.
