There are few things in life as challenging and stress-inducing as a divorce. While none of us willingly enter into a marriage with the assumption that it will end in separation, the unfortunate reality is that divorce is increasingly common. When children come into play, legal separation can make for an incredibly difficult experience.
When deciding how to move forward, it’s important to prioritize a swift, speedy resolution to your separation: not just for your sake, but above all for the sake of your children. In order to arrive at a settlement as quickly as possible, you need an attorney with years of experience in family law. You need someone who will put the interests of your children first.

Nobody goes into a marriage anticipating that it will end in divorce, but when it does, the resulting conflict is often confusing, frustrating, and painful – especially when there are children involved. At Divorce in Colorado, we focus on helping you get to a satisfactory resolution of all the essential issues while keeping what is best for the children as our top priority.
With extensive courtroom experience, collaborative law training, and completing mediation training through the Colorado Bar Association with Judith Mares Dixon in 2007, many clients choose Divorce in Colorado to work as a neutral with the parties to resolve their divorce and family law related issues through mediation.
Some choose to mediate before hiring attorneys to determine if lawyers will need to advise the clients separately regarding their respective interests. With an exceptional reputation in the legal community, many clients with counsel choose Divorce in Colorado to meditate or participate in settlement conferences to assist with divorce resolution for the parties.
We encourage parents to first design the best parenting plan for their child before worrying about child support. The misconception that a parent should fight for more overnights with their children to limit the amount they pay in support is often a problem. Whether you pay the most available parent or pay to have your children with you, the cost of having kids before and after divorce is a financial reality.
While the list of “income” is long and detailed, many of our client’s combined annual gross income exceeds the State guidelines of $360,000. This means the calculation for child support may be such that the conversation becomes about what the child’s needs are and what is a reasonable amount for each parent to contribute to support the child.
Should the issue go to trial, the judge will have the discretion to order the child support when the gross income exceeds the child support guidelines.
