It’s especially important to work with an attorney who will put the interests of your children and family first, regardless of the details. Here in Thornton, CO, Divorce in Colorado is here to help.

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.

Divorce In Colorado works with families throughout Colorado, and quite often, one parent is unable to remain in the area after Divorce.

  • Are you getting Divorced and want to move away?
  • Have you tried to live in the same place after the divorce and have new opportunities elsewhere?
  • Do you or your spouse need family support – and they live in a different State?

You may need to negotiate your parenting plan with parents living in different States or modify a parenting plan after you decide to move. Divorce In Colorado can help you determine and negotiate a parenting plan that will serve the best interests of your children and let you live in the place best for you! Divorce in Colorado has the expertise in all the family law needs to represent your family.

If changes to court orders are needed after divorce, our team can help you!

Did you enter court orders that are not working for your family? Did you try to do your divorce – fill out some paperwork- and realize you should have talked to a lawyer?

You may need to change:

  • Child Support 
  • Maintenance
  • Parenting Time
  • Property Distribution
  • Missed issues or detailed provisions of your agreement
  • Allocation of Tax Credits or
  • Property distributions that are not fair and equitable.

If a spouse ever decides not to disclose assets during a divorce is a good idea; know that Colorado law has a 5-year look back, and you may be able to re-open your divorce for reallocation of assets if necessary.

Divorce In Colorado will assist you with determining who the father of the child is, negotiating parental rights, and calculating child support. If someone is accusing you of being the father, and you are not sure, nor interested in paying 19 years of support for a child that may not be yours, contact us now to help you.

Too often, divorcing parents attempt to limit, ruin, or prevent the other parent from seeing or being with their children. At Divorce In Colorado, we firmly believe and advocate for the fact that.

If the other parent is wrongfully limiting your parenting time, access to the children, or otherwise not following the court-ordered parenting plan, Divorce In Colorado will help.

Do you think your Divorce may be amicable?

  • Are you afraid of hiring attorneys to help you or thinking about the government a/k/a a judge in Court deciding what’s best for YOUR family?
