Colorado is a purely “no fault” state, which means that a court will not assign blame to either party for a divorce. You don’t need to demonstrate a specific reason for seeking a divorce. Instead, a Colorado resident may take this step when a marriage is irretrievably broken beyond the point of repair. A divorce may be uncontested or contested. In an uncontested divorce, the spouses agree on all of the terms.

Any divorce in which young children are involved inevitably raises issues related to child custody and parenting time. In Colorado, courts will hear individual custody cases or resolve custody issues as part of the divorce process. The term “custody” has been officially replaced with the term “parental responsibility,” although the former term is still often used. This area of the law involves determinations about the right to make important life decisions for the child, which parent the child will primarily live with, and how the visitation schedule will be designed. Custody determinations depend heavily on the specific circumstances of a particular case. Thus, a judge has broad discretion to consider any factor that may be relevant to what is in the best interests of the children involved.

Whether you are involved in a divorce, a child custody dispute, or another family law matter, you can trust us to provide you with the following:

  • Strategic case planning and thorough analysis of your divorce or custody matter
  • Exceptional Courtroom and Negotiation Skills
  • Realistic advice during all stages of your family law case
  • Experienced and accessible attorneys dedicated to their Colorado family law clients
  • Two convenient locations in the DTC and Broomfield.

Another critical issue in family law matters is child support. In Colorado, the calculation of child support may seem straightforward because it is based on a statutory formula. However, it may quickly become complicated if either parent is self-employed, unemployed, or underemployed, and there are no concrete numbers to plug into the formula. These complexities are one reason why having a seasoned Denver divorce lawyer on your side is critical. Under state law, child support obligations end when a child turns 19, unless a statutory exception applies.

Another aspect of a divorce that may become highly complex is property division. Marital property consists of any property acquired over the course of the marriage, with the exceptions of gifts and inheritances. Anything that is not marital property is known as separate property, and it belongs solely to one spouse. Though separate property is not subject to division at the time of a divorce, gains realized during the court of the marriage to that property are. Colorado is an equitable distribution state. Typically, a judge will divide marital property roughly equally, but this may not happen if a different arrangement is fairer. In some cases, a judge may divide the property unequally because of certain circumstances in that particular case, such as one spouse having a much higher income or a greater ability to replace property. A judge has broad discretion in this area and will try to gain a comprehensive view of the situation.

With multiple locations and family law professionals, it’s generally easy to schedule appointments quickly, whether in our Denver Tech Center or Broomfield office. At your initial consultation session, the first step for the attorney you meet with is to thoroughly assess your case for purposes of ascertaining your rights, options, and risks. From there, we will work to give you our honest impressions as to how best proceed with your case, based on our experience, understanding of the law, and your unique set of circumstances. Along the way, we work to develop a sound strategy for handling your case, which will include both determining settlement options and how to effectively present your evidence in court. Any case has the potential to go in either direction. As such, we believe it’s important to be prepared for all contingencies.

In our efforts to make your initial consultation session as productive as possible, we encourage potential clients to come prepared to discuss their family law issues. If you are coming to us to start a new divorce or child custody case, there’s not much you need to bring in terms of paperwork to start. However, if you’ve been served with legal papers, or are coming to talk about post-decree issues, such as modifications or contempt of court, having your relevant court documents will increase both the efficiency and productivity of your session as we work to assess your case. Some people even come in with questions prepared ahead of time. In any case, your attorney will know what information is needed to give you the guidance and advice you deserve.

At Plog & Stein, P.C., we believe good communication and an open dialogue are the cornerstones for building a strong attorney-client relationship. As such, we encourage clients to ask questions and we always want to make sure they understand the advice and input we give. When meeting with your attorney, rest assured that the conversation is strictly confidential, as dictated by the code of conduct lawyers are bound to follow, based on attorney-client privilege.

Ultimately, our goal is to provide the legal services each client deserves, as well as the peace of mind that comes with knowing you have a true family law professional on your side.

When I first came to Plog & Stein it was simply discuss the renegotiation of child support. Little did I know that within 72 hours I would be retaining Steve Plog for a custody battle. His passion and ferocity kept me going through this long ordeal. I have recommended him to my friends and I would recommend him to anyone with who wants honest and effective representation.
I recommend Sarah and the attorneys at Plog & Stein to anyone that has these types of family issues and need strong, knowledgeable representation.
I am thankful for the job Sarah McCain did for me in my fight with my ex-wife for visitation rights with my daughter. Sarah and the team at Plog & Stein handled my case in an efficient, affordable, and professional manner. Sarah negotiated a new parenting plan as well as acceptable visiting rights and even a favorable modification in my child support.

At the end of the day he was able to produce a settlement that was fair to both parties.
I highly recommend Stephen Plog for anyone in need of a top notch domestic relations attorney. After a 27 year marriage, Stephen represented me in a complicated and sometimes bitter divorce with many unique challenges. At the end of the day he was able to produce a settlement that was fair to both parties but limited my alimony payments to only 3 years. He is smart, cuts to the chase, knows the court system in the Denver metropolitan area and can be trusted to get his clients the best possible settlement.
