Dividing Marital Assets in a Colorado Divorce

One of the main issues in any Colorado divorce case is the division of 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, property division can be 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, but the court actually divides the property according to what is fair, which is not always the same thing. 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 and 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 making sure our clients get a fair property settlement, or ruling from the court.

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.
