The experienced Denver divorce attorneys at Plog & Stein, P.C. represent men and women in all types of family law cases, including divorce. A Colorado divorce case can be the most complex of all domestic relations cases in that divorces can entail the whole range of legal issues a family may face. Our attorneys are adept at all aspects of divorce, including custody, child support, alimony, division of property, and division of debt. Each aspect of your divorce case can have a lasting impact on you and your children, both emotionally and financially. Our goal is to help each client fight for his or her rights as part of the process and to finish the case in the best position possible.
Colorado is a “no-fault” divorce state. As such, one does not need to show specific reasons for a divorce, such as infidelity, abuse, etc. Rather, if a person wants a divorce in Colorado, he or she will get it. At Plog & Stein, our attorneys look at each divorce case as a unique matter with its own set of specific facts and circumstances.
In a Colorado divorce case, the primary objective of your lawyer should be to strategically help you prepare to begin your new life with the comfort of knowing that the needs of you and your children will be met going forward. When analyzing each case, the attorneys at Plog & Stein view the case as a whole, while still recognizing that each aspect of the case, whether custody or property division, can be equally important to our clients. We also recognize that one aspect of the case can affect the others and that each aspect is, therefore, important from a legal standpoint. Knowledge of the law is an important part of our approach in any divorce case. Our attorneys focus solely on the practice of cases related to divorce, custody, and child support. We believe that doing one thing well helps our clients.
In the Denver, Colorado area, the length of time a divorce case can take from start to finish depends on the court your case is in. In some courts, a case can take a few months. In others, a divorce matter can take a year or more. Fortunately, the courts will enter temporary orders that govern while the case is pending, such as orders for child support and visitation, thereby giving clients protection as they go through the litigation process. At Plog & Stein, our attorneys strive to know each metropolitan area court and what each judge is looking for in terms of evidence. This allows our attorneys to provide better information and insight on how a judge may rule on a particular divorce issue.
With the range of issues that can come with a divorce case, our lawyers see many cases in which some, or all, of the issues settle before proceeding to a final hearing. You may resolve the visitation and custody aspects of your case, but still disagree on child support and property. We strive to be there for our clients in and out of the courtroom. We are ready to negotiate settlement or take your matter to trial. We know what is fair and what you are entitled to. We also know the legal process, and are able to appropriately advise you and fight for your rights.
At Plog & Stein, our Denver divorce and custody lawyers recognize that divorce can be an emotionally taxing process. While listening to each client with patience, we strive to conclude the process in the most efficient, timely, and result driven manner as possible. A divorce can be likened to the dissolution of a two person corporation. It is out intent to see that our clients are afforded their fair share of the marital estate and that the children are safe and cared for appropriately when the matter is done.
