Comprehensive Family Law Services
Families are the fundamental units upon which all other institutions are built. Unresolved conflicts can take an unnecessary toll on generations of family members. That’s why family law is so vital. They need a supportive legal process to defuse conflicts and reach fair resolutions.
The Denver Legal team tackles a wide range of concerns that arise within families. We aspire to reach a solution that protects the interests of everyone involved while ensuring your rights aren’t violated.
Here are some important areas of family law we can help you with:
- Divorce – You can get legally married within a day without any hassles, but divorce is a whole other story. The family courts have to carefully evaluate the circumstances, arguments, evidence, and assets of both parties. 95 percent of divorces are settled without a trial, but it can take a lot of legal legwork and negotiations to resolve these disputes. Our family lawyer will help you choose the path of least resistance to reach a quick and fair conclusion. They’ll also assist you with your marital alimony dispute.
- Child support, custody, and visitation rights – Divorces with children involved are a lot more complicated than divorces with no children. Child custody battles are emotionally draining and legally challenging. The family court will factor in both sides’ financial status and work-life balance along with the child’s emotional well-being. They can also make a ruling on the visiting rights of the non-custodial parent. These decisions could impact your relationship with your children for the rest of your life. We’ll fight for the best interests of your children and negotiate a healthy custody agreement. We’ll also negotiate a comfortable financial support plan to assist your children’s nurturing.
- Adoption and surrogacy – Adoption is a legal process you need to go through to get legal parental rights for children who are not biologically yours. Our family lawyers will help you with all the adoption paperwork and proof needed to show that the child will get a safe and nurturing household. We’ll ensure that you aren’t being taken advantage of by an adoption agency or the birth parent during this process.
- Domestic violence – If you can’t feel safe in your own home, then something is seriously wrong. Domestic abuse victims can take our help to hold their abusers liable for their injuries and losses. Your family lawyer can get you access to counseling and shelter. We can also help you secure a restraining order against your abuser.
We can also assist you with paternity matters, prenuptial/postnuptial/cohabitation agreements, and family asset protection and valuation.
