By offering child-centric advice and parenting time solutions that are reasonable, emotionally sound for children and financially realistic for parents, there are less issues for modification later and more reason for parents to move past their issues and truly focus on being the best parents they can.
Our Castle Rock, Parker, Castle Pines and Highlands Ranch clients are often families of wealth or with incomes that exceed the guidelines that child support is based upon.
- Doctors & Dentists
- Financial Planners
- Business Owners
When this happens, it is important to have great counsel that can assist with determining financial need without having the higher wage-earning spouse paying more than is necessary to financially support the children.
When we help families in different financial circumstances, we work diligently to make accurate determinations of income, complete financial disclosures as soon as possible, and calculate reasonable support for the child’s needs.
We also have attorneys ready to assist with the collections of support that is past due and should be reduced to a judgment.

However, if attempts at settlement are unsuccessful, you can rest assured that our team will work aggressively to represent your interests in the courtroom.
Castle Rock Child Legal Represenatives
Too often families in conflict through a divorce cannot agree who the children should live with or how much time and how often the children should share time between parents and homes.
Often attorneys are advising clients to involve Child Family Investigators or Parental Responsibility Evaluators to meet with the children and parents and then determine, after an incredibly limited amount of time, what they believe is in the child’s best interests.
A Child Legal Representative is the legal and often more effective alternative. When a Child Legal Representative is appointed, the children have their own attorney at the table representing their best interests throughout the legal process of the divorce.
Instead of “investigating” your family, as Child Legal Representatives the attorneys of Teddi Ann Barry, P.C. meet with the children separately, interview counselors, teachers, friends and family members and work with the parent’s attorneys to negotiate parenting plans in their best interests or prepare separate witnesses and questions for trial to offer the courts a perspective and information separate from the parent’s counsel.
As parents continue to negotiate parenting plans for their teenage children that the kids do not want to follow or that fail miserably to consider the child’s best interests, or social and educational priorities.
Throughout Colorado we love our pets! We help Castle Rock families structure animal custody agreements that include:
- Shared time,
- How animal expenses should be shared or paid
- How your animals continue to share time after the separation.

- Draft Motions or Response Pleadings
Before your case will be heard by the Arapahoe, Douglas or Elbert County courts, you must attend mediation.
Before you mediate, families must know if there are issues that need to be mediated or if they are mistakenly trying to use mediators instead of getting sound legal advice.
- Do you know how the best interests of children are determined?
- Do you have businesses or property that should be valued before you divide it?
- Have you considered capital gains or tax consequences of what you want to do?
Too often clients think mediation is an alternative to legal advice or representation.
Since mediators can’t offer legally advice and only act as a neutral to assist you with coming to resolution, consider calling our attorneys to assist you before talking to our mediators in Castle Rock.
As a lawyer, Teddi Ann offers you legal advice and strategy. As a mediator, Teddi Ann limits her role to assisting you with negotiations for settlement.
Some families are choosing to hire a family attorney instead of separate attorneys so they may receive the same legal information without establishing separate attorney-client privileges. Find out more about Unified Divorce by clicking here.
If you do not know what you are doing legally, mediation is premature – and often not necessary at all when you take the time to speak with an attorney, understand the law and your rights and have a licensed family law attorney.
