Our 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. This includes keeping abreast of Colorado divorce statues and rules, primarily flowing from C.R.S. Title 14, Article 10, the Uniform Dissolution of Marriage Act.
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.
Our divorce attorneys can also assist Denver residents with the following divorce-related matters:
- Civil Unions
- Child Support
- Property Division
- Complex Marital Estates
- Business Valuation (as part of the divorce process)
- Premarital Agreements
- Restraining Orders
- Contempt of Court
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. Our firm looks at each divorce case as a unique matter with its own set of specific facts and circumstances.
In the Denver area, the length of time a divorce case can take from start to finish depends on the court your case is in. A Douglas County divorce might take longer than a divorce in Broomfield or Adams County. In most cases, a contested divorce can take a few months from start to finish. In others, a divorce matter can take a year or more. Again each county is different in terms of their dockets. A truly uncontested divorce, in which all issues are resolved, can be done in 91 days and, in some instances, parties may be able to avoid going to court all together. 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.How An Experienced Denver Divorce Lawyer Can Help
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. 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.When analyzing each case, we do the following:
- We 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.
We 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.
Our divorce lawyers represent clients throughout Denver and the surrounding metro counties of Colorado. When you call, one of our attorneys will take the time, for FREE, to briefly identify your concerns and if we believe we can help.
