Highlands Ranch Emergency/Short Terms RepresentationIf you are looking for legal representation for your family law case right away, the Highlands Ranch divorce attorneys at Plog & Stein, P.C. are ready to step in and help. We provide clients in the Highlands Ranch area with representation for emergency hearings and short term notice cases involving family law. Often times, these situations arise with child custody. For example, if one parent becomes an “imminent danger” to the children or if one party threatens to leave the state with the children, filing an emergency motion may be necessary. Sometimes financial emergencies may also arise. Likewise, a quick legal response may be needed to deal with a retraining order case, regardless of which side you are on. Whatever your circumstances, our firm is equipped to move quickly to deal with your family law situation, including hearings, consultations, or helping you meet a filing deadline.

What Does It Take to Deal with a Custody Emergency?

In a custody situation where one parent believes there is an imminent danger for their children to visit with the other party, filing a motion to restrict parenting time may be necessary. In the state of Colorado, C.R.S. 14-10-129(4) sets forth the standard for dealing with custody emergencies tied into the restriction of parenting time rights. This can arise due to drug and alcohol use, child abuse or neglect, domestic violence, and acute mental illness. Sadly, we also see instances in which a motion to restrict might be filed without a valid basis. In those instances, we also defend clients against those allegations. Emergencies necessitating quick action can also arise In circumstances in which a parent is threatening to leave the state with the children, or has already done so. In those cases, emergency parental abduction measures may be needed. Our divorce attorneys can assist Highlands Ranch residents with taking prompt action.

In the case of imminent danger, proving the immediacy of harm to the child is key to getting the courts to take action. In any emergency, tangible proof will be needed to file a motion. It is vital to issue subpoenas and gather evidence quickly. With a successful filing, visitation immediately stops and a contested court hearing will take place within 14 days. If you need immediate representation, don’t delay in speaking with an attorney who knows what it takes to get you a hearing and who will work hard to protect your family.

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.
