Proud to offer a variety of Divorce, Family and Custody Law Services
The focus at our Denver family law firm, the Law Offices of Doddridge C. Shelby, LLC is on helping individuals to resolve the difficult issues relating to divorce, child custody, child support and the division of marital assets and debts.
With more than 30 years of experience as an attorney, I have the ability to view my clients' problems from many different angles. This, in turn, enables me to help my clients look beyond their immediate problems and see what they will be able to accomplish in the future, after we resolve their issues.
Are you lost in your problems? Do you need a sympathetic ear? I am an attorney and counselor at our Denver family law firm. I am well regarded by clients and colleagues for my ability to listen, to understand and to communicate effectively with the people I serve. To find out what I can do to help you, please contact my law office today for a free Denver divorce consultation. I welcome your call.
We focus on the following practice areas at our Denver family law firm:
Divorce. I handle divorce and all matters related to the dissolution of marriage.
Child custody and visitation. In normal circumstances, the courts in Colorado will stipulate shared custody, referred to as "parenting time."
Child support and maintenance. I help clients to work through Colorado's state-mandated child support guidelines and enforce and collect payments.
Grandparents' rights. I can help grandparents to establish visitation or parental rights.
Adoption. Stepparent adoption offers benefits to both parents and children.
Modification. After your divorce is finalized, your changed circumstances may warrant a modification of child support, child custody or alimony. I can help you seek those modifications from the court.
Division of marital property and debts. The "equitable distribution" of marital assets and debts in Colorado is not necessarily fifty-fifty.
Complex property division. Generally, the longer the marriage the more complicated the division of marital property. When necessary, I engage financial and tax experts to work with my clients.
Wills and trusts. Some basic estate planning will go a long way toward providing peace of mind for yourself and your loved ones.
