Types of Family Law We Handle
Family law is a broad area of the legal system. Fortunately, our team provides services for many different types of family law cases. This gives you more comprehensive protection and better peace of mind.
Separating from a spouse is one of the most difficult and stressful events a person can experience. This process often leads to several other key decisions and negotiations that will impact your family’s future. Our team can advise you throughout the divorce process to ensure that you are cared for and supported after the divorce is finalized.
Though divorce can be stressful, many people can resolve their differences through mediation. This saves you both time and money and allows you to discuss your divorce in a pragmatic way. We offer both mediation and litigation services for your convenience.
One of the most difficult parts of the divorce process is dividing property between you and your ex-spouse. All your assets will be assessed and divided equally or according to any prenuptial agreement you may have. This can be emotional and worrisome for those who want to keep certain assets. Our team can help in negotiating with your ex-spouse, giving you the chance to retain what is important to you.
Child custody negotiations always focus on what is best for the child rather than the preferences or feelings of the parent. Child custody falls into two categories: physical and legal. Physical custody involves the guardianship of a child. Legal custody encompasses all legal decisions that a parent can make about their child. It’s possible to have physical custody without legal custody, but it is rare to have legal custody without physical custody. Many divorced or separated parents have both.
Our job as family law attorneys is to ensure that the court sees why you are a fit parent and why your children’s well-being depends upon living with you. Court rulings may result in full custody, partial custody, parenting time, or no parental rights in both the legal and physical categories.
Parenting time, also known as visitation, encompasses the amount of time each parent spends with their child. In some scenarios, a parent will not receive custody or parental decision-making privileges, but they are legally entitled to spend time with their children. If this is on the table during your divorce proceedings, we can help to argue for your perspective. What is in the children’s best interest is ultimately the deciding factor.
Situations in which one parent has more physical custody than the other often warrant child support. Monetary support helps to ensure that both of the child’s parents are contributing equally. It’s also possible to arrange child support in shared custody scenarios that involve one parent with an income that is much higher than the other. Our team helps you to negotiate your Denver child support terms, as well as to enforce them.
Spousal Maintenance / Support
If one spouse benefits from a high income while the other does not or runs the household without outside income, the low-earning spouse may be entitled to spousal support payments. These payments help to compensate the spouse for their work at home, as well as ensure that they are financially stable after the divorce is finalized. We can ensure that payments are fair and that you aren’t paying more or receiving less than is appropriate.
Grandparents and stepparents may be able to claim guardianship rights over children during or after a divorce. Though this is less common than parental rights, our firm has experience in this arena and can help you navigate the process, if applicable.
High Net-Worth Divorce
If you or your spouse have significant assets, own a business together, or are otherwise handling a large sum of money, it’s especially important to have an attorney to represent you. High net-worth divorces can be difficult, and we’ll ensure that the court treats you fairly.
In addition to offering traditional representation, we offer limited representation (unbundled) services to those clients who may benefit from the ability to manage their own cases. Under this model, clients receive legal advice specific to their needs without having to commit to a high retainer or ongoing attorney-client relationship. Services include:
- Court document and settlement agreement drafting
- Review of client-prepared documents
- Representation at settlement conferences and/or mediation
- Representation in court
