Preparing for Divorce
When you have concluded that your marriage is irretrievably broken and filing for divorce is inevitable, you should consider consulting with a Colorado family law attorney while you are still in the marital home. You will want to discuss how to plan for your divorce while you still have easy access to your financial statements, legal records, and files.
Hiring a Colorado Family Law Attorney
The legal procedure for ending your marriage can be challenging, but a domestic relations lawyer can guide you through each phase of the process. A family law attorney licensed in the State of Colorado will be familiar with the state’s recent changes in family law, and will understand the current version of the Rules of Civil Procedure. An attorney will know how and when to file petitions and motions with the court and will have experience with property division, maintenance, and the allocation of parental rights. A Colorado domestic relations lawyer will also know the rules that must be followed in the county that has jurisdiction over your case and will be familiar with many of the judges and magistrates.
