Dividing Marital Assets in a Colorado Divorce
One of the main issues in any Colorado divorce case is the division of marital assets. With Highlands Ranch being largely residential, most of our clients from there are homeowners. Moreover, in most Highlands Ranch divorce cases we see, one, or both parties have retirement or other investment assets. Like any other issue, marital property division can be a contentious part of a Colorado divorce. Our attorneys are skilled at making sure marital property is “equitably” divided, which is the standard under Colorado statute (C.R.S. 14-10-113). It would be easy to assume that “equitable” means equal. While most of the time it does, the court actually has authority to divide the property according to what the judge believes is fair. Though dividing assets in a divorce may be perceived as simple, the reality is that property division takes strategic planning in terms of identifying the marital estate and determining what sort of division plan is realistic. In assessing marital property we always look to what is in the best financial interest of our clients. Our experienced attorneys often work with various experts who may be needed to value property, such as the marital home or a business interest. In any case, our goal is to make sure our clients get a fair property settlement or ruling from the court.
Your Divorce Case is Unique
While every Douglas County divorce case requires the same court process, paperwork, and procedures, each case is unique. Assets and issues may be the same, but the details of your specific circumstances and objectives matter to us. Your first meeting with Plog & Stein, P.C. will be with one of the attorneys. At that meeting, our goal is to gather as much initial information as possible. By asking questions and listening to your concerns we are able to start to not only assessing probabilities and outcomes, but to also start formulating a strategy for effectively working towards your goals. Ultimately, the specific details of your life and financial circumstances may be important to your case related to children, property, or spousal support. In any case, we want to be as prepared as possible when getting ready for court or discussing settlement. We also want to make sure our clients understand their rights and the process they will be going through. Throughout it all, we will work hard to get your case settled or litigated in an efficient and effective manner.
Finishing your divorce may be only the first part of your family law legal issues. Oftentimes, clients will need us later on to deal with enforcing their court orders, assisting with marital property division, or modifying parenting time or child support provisions. With that in mind, we strive to build lasting relationships with our clients and to be there for them in the future.
