Your family law attorney will work closely with you to resolve your dissolution and ensure you are not taken advantage of during this stressful time.
Aspects of Divorce
Divorce is a complex process. When people are married, growing as a couple, and times are good, financial decisions are not based on what will make things simplest in a divorce. When dissolving a marriage becomes a reality, finances are often messy and hard to sort out. It is not enough to end your marriage; you and your spouse have to work out all the details of what ending that relationship means. Assets, debts and property must be addressed. If you have children, you must resolve how parenting time and support will be handled. This is where having a strong Denver divorce attorney makes a difference.
Resolving a divorce includes:
- Property division
- Allocation of assets and debts
- Spousal support (“Alimony/Maintenance”)
- Parenting time and decision making (child custody)
- Child support
As experienced family law attorneys, we can assist you in all aspects of this process. We look out for your best interests and make sure you have aggressive and zealous representation in all divorce proceedings. In addition to serving the greater Denver metro area, we serve clients in Northern Colorado (Fort Collins, Loveland, and Greeley).
Resolving your Divorce
There are a few different ways spouses can approach and resolve their divorce. Some couples are able to work cooperatively together to agree on the terms of an agreement. In these cases, your attorney will make sure all important rights and considerations are addressed in your agreement and will write up the divorce papers in a way that protects you going forward.
To reach a settlement, the services of a mediator are often utilized. Mediation helps couples resolve outstanding issues and reach an agreement outside of the courtroom, helping them avoid costly litigation. In mediation, a mediator serves as an impartial third party and works with the spouses and their attorneys to find common ground. Prior to mediation, your attorney will meet with you to fully understand your unique situation, help you determine what issues exist in your case, make sure you are fully aware of your rights, and work with you to devise a proposed solution to work towards during negotiations. Your attorney will attend mediation with you. During mediation, we will assist in presenting your position in legal terms, guide you through the choices you are making, and advise you regarding the long term impacts your decisions will have. Of course, will also make sure you aren’t giving up more than you should. If a settlement is reached, your attorney will draft an agreement that accurately reflects the settlement and provides strong protections for you in the event your spouse does not follow through with the commitments they agreed to previously.
Some couples find it difficult to navigate complex issues and agree on terms when things are so emotionally charged. Issues like parenting time (custody), spousal maintenance (alimony) and dividing assets and debts are all considered by your family law attorney. In the event you and your spouse are unable to come to an agreement, undecided issues will be brought before a judge. A judge will hear argument from both sides and make any necessary decisions based on the information and evidence presented. If a judge is deciding your case, it is absolutely critical to have a zealous advocate on your side. Your attorney will explain your case and argue on your behalf while presenting the evidence to the judge in a persuasive way. At Malman Law Firm, our Denver divorce attorneys are experienced in presenting evidence to the Court. They will navigate the legal process on with you and advocate for you in court to protect your best interests and those of your children.
