PROUD TO OFFER AN EXPERIENCED, COMPASSIONATE AND CLIENT-FOCUSED FREE CONSULTATION
Every divorce is unique. That is why I am committed to giving each of my clients personalized service. At our initial consultation at our Denver, CO divorce law firm, I listen carefully to gather the information I need and understand your priorities. Then I explain what legal separation is, what the divorce process is and how it works:
Normally, the first step to obtaining a divorce in Colorado is to file a petition for dissolution.
Temporary orders hearings may be requested where there are custody issues that require immediate resolution.
Early on both spouses will be required to provide sworn financial statements for disclosure to the other spouse.
Colorado mandates a 90-day cooling off period in divorce, so at least three months must pass before a divorce decree is issued.
If there are allegations of child abuse or neglect, we can hire experts to conduct psychological evaluations; sometimes, the court will require a recommendation from a Child and Family Investigator (CFI) or other professional.
Negotiating a divorce settlement is usually preferable to fighting in court. It offers greater control over the outcome than relying on a judge to resolve the issues.
