Greeley and Fort Collins Divorce Lawyers

Although much of our practice involves criminal defense, we have seen how legal problems in the criminal justice system can reverberate through families over and over again throughout our careers. Divorce and family law today form the most important part of our civil practice, and we know how to apply the problem-solving and trial skills that we first developed in the criminal courts to benefit parents, children and divorcing spouses who are going through very different transitions.

It's easy to panic when a family crisis threatens to turn your life upside down. Fortunately, Colorado law recognizes that each family's situation is unique, and courts are given a great deal of discretion to craft remedies that best address a particular legal and practical challenge. Better yet, divorcing spouses and single parents are encouraged to find their own solutions because nobody is in a better position to understand a situation than the people who are going through it themselves.

Perhaps our biggest task as family law attorneys is to help people understand their legal rights and responsibilities, and then assist with the formulation of goals and priorities that apply that understanding to the facts of their actual situation. This process can help you find your own preferred approaches to just about any problem that can come up in Colorado family law:

  • Contested or uncontested divorce
  • Legal separation agreements
  • Property division
  • Negotiation or enforcement of prenuptial agreements
  • Child support in divorce or paternity proceedings
  • Child custody and visitation
  • Spousal maintenance or alimony issues
  • Negotiation or enforcement of civil agreements between straight or gay unmarried couples
  • Enforcement or modification of divorce decrees and family court orders
  • Parental relocation issues
  • Domestic violence and orders of protection
  • Adoption by stepparents, relatives or same-sex couples

We offer affordable advice and representation in family law matters, as well as free initial consultations in all cases.
