Our Practice Areas

Divorce / Dissolution of Marriage​

A divorce in Colorado is called “dissolution of marriage,” which is commenced by the filing of a petition in the district court of the county where the parties reside.

High Asset Divorce

A substantial portion of the divorce process will involve the division of this wealth. Whether in the form of investments, family-owned businesses, real-estate ownership or other highly valuable entities, you must ensure that your property and assets are divided in a way that protects you and your financial stability.

Child Custody

Colorado courts will consider the “best interests of the child” in every Colorado divorce, legal separation, annulment, or paternity case involving children.

Spousal and Child Support

In Colorado, spousal support is known as maintenance, the duration and amount of which depends upon a number of factors determined by statute. 

International Child Abduction

The Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction was enacted to provide an expeditious method for the return of children who have been wrongfully removed.

Complex Financial Matters

We understand that assessing high net assets and marital property with complex business and money issues requires extensive experience. Certified business appraisers, forensic accountants, and other financial experts and professionals are critical in the determination, protection, and division of assets.

Even if two parents never marry, there are times when these families are in need of court-ordered structure to identify parental responsibilities and shared parenting time.
