Divorcing in Boulder County

Everyone understands, from a logical point of view, that jointly discussing assets and expenses during the initial stages of a divorce is preferential. Unfortunately, not everyone is going to be in a logical state of mind as you separate from your spouse and begin divorce proceedings. If possible, before even filing, you should sit down together and go over the entire financial picture of your assets, keeping documentation of what your overall marital obligations are before anyone vacates the household. Regardless of what your relationship circumstances are, bills need to be paid. Things like utilities, mortgage or rent, health and car insurance, and credit card bills should not be allowed to lapse. Even if you are on rocky grounds with your spouse, attempt to get the best possible understanding of your total financial circumstances as soon as possible.

Once a party petitions the court for a divorce, the other side will be served. If you have been served with divorce papers, you have 21 days to file a response with the court. From there, the parties will attend an Initial Status Conference, which will be the opportunity to apprise the court as to the pertinent matters in your case. Ultimately, the parties will either resolve all relevant issues, including property division, alimony, and child related matters, including support. Resolution will come either via formulation of a comprehensive Separation Agreement or via a contested hearing in front of the judge. Making sure your divorce is done correctly from the outset matters in the long run. So does having the right family law firm on your side.

Of course, not every issue in a divorce is easily resolved. You may be dealing with a great amount of asset division in a high net worth divorce or a complicated custody arrangement. If you are not easily able to come to agreement on all of your issues, your lawyer will be able to weigh your options and strategically formulate a plan designed to obtain the best possible outcome in your case.

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.
