Understanding Colorado Family Law
Colorado is a “no-fault” divorce state, which means that a spouse does not need to show wrongdoing by the other spouse or otherwise provide a reason in order to obtain a divorce. Despite the ease with which one can obtain a divorce, the process can be far from simple.
Child custody disputes often arise during Colorado divorces, and they can be dealt with separately or as part of the divorce proceeding. Because custody issues can trigger very strong emotions for all those involved, it is important to have an experienced child custody attorney represent the best interests of yourself and your children. At Plog & Stein, our family law attorneys have substantial experience handling all aspects of custody cases and can advise you of the best and most cost-effective way to ensure that your interests are adequately represented.
In a Colorado divorce, a court will divide the marital property using a principle called “equitable division.” This means that the division of property and assets the former couple owned might not be divided equally between the two ex-spouses. Instead, the court has discretion to allocate the assets according to what it decides is fair or “equitable.” For example, a stay-at-home father might receive greater than 50 percent of the marital property upon divorce due to having to return to work at a lower wage scale than the mother who worked for the duration of the marriage.
Custody and division of property are only two aspects of family law that can arise during a divorce. If you are considering a divorce or are dealing with any other family law matter, an experienced Denver divorce attorney can help you understand your options and choose what is right for you.

ADDITIONAL FIRM INFORMATION: In 2001, Plog & Stein made the decision to focus solely on domestic relations issues. Our decision was largely based on the belief that this was an area of law in which people from all walks of life and circumstances needed help. The same holds true today. In representing our clients, the attorneys at Plog & Stein don’t view each case as a one time event. Rather, we strive to provide quality representation for our clients with the goal of building lasting relationships. In divorce or custody cases with young children, child support, or alimony obligations, chances are fairly good that people will find themselves back in court at some point along the way.

This includes giving our clients honest assessments about their cases and letting them make decisions on how to proceed from a cost benefit analysis standpoint.
