There are many aspects of divorce in Colorado, with the core issues in need of resolution being division of assets/debts and alimony (maintenance). In families with children, matters of child custody and child support must also be addressed. Emotions can run high in any divorce case and it is normal for parties to go through a range of them, including anxiety or anger. Keeping this in mind, our attorneys strive to help our clients sort through the emotions in a productive manner so they are better able to focus on the bigger picture, that being the final outcome of their cases. By providing clients with honest case assessments and sound legal advice we are able to provide comfort in knowing that they have a solid legal team behind them. With any divorce, we back this up with significant experience when the time comes to negotiate settlement or take your case to trial.
With multiple issues at hand, it’s not uncommon for divorce litigants to agree on some issues, but not others. Colorado Revised Statutes, Title 14, Article 10, the Uniform Dissolution of Marriage Act, sets forth the statutory standards for dealing with the primary divorce issues. As with any area of law, there is often room for both interpretation of the law and disagreement. Some issues may be left to a judge’s discretion, such as what an “equitable” division of property might be or what figure is fair for alimony. As such, we believe it to be important for our attorneys to understand not only the law, but the court systems we work in.
Aurora is somewhat unique in that the city straddles two counties, Arapahoe and Adams. Your Aurora family law case will be heard in the county in which you reside. While the law is the same throughout the State of Colorado, court procedures in Arapahoe County (the 18th Judicial District) can differ from those in Adams County (the 17th Judicial District). Each courthouse can come with different judges and different philosophies regarding the various divorce issues. Having familiarity with both court systems aids our divorce attorneys in representing Aurora residents, and in turn our clients, when it comes time to make decisions regarding settlement or preparation for your final divorce hearing. Whatever the circumstances, our attorneys are there for you, the client, each step of the way.
At Plog & Stein, we understand that divorces come in all shapes and sizes. Some families come to the table with complex marital estates, perhaps with significant business interests or real estate holdings. Others may have limited marital assets, yet still need resolution regarding support issues or allocation of debt. Regardless of the circumstances, we understand that financial outcomes matter to our clients. Additionally, regardless of financial circumstances, nothing matters more to most people than the children and their best interest when the time to divorce comes. Again, with decades of combined experience, our attorneys are equipped to deal with both complex and simple monetary and custody issues. We understand what matters to you as you move on to the next chapter of your life.
We also deal with legal separations, dissolutions of civil unions, annulments, uncontested divorces, and same-sex divorces. Though themes may be similar, each type of case can have its own set of nuances. In any family law situation, having the right representation matters. Ensuring fair outcomes for our clients does, too.Divorce Lawyers Serving Aurora Residents
