What to Expect From a Free Consultation

Your family law case starts with an initial consultation. We’re available for both in-person meetings and Zoom. During your consultation, we’ll ask a handful of questions to get a better understanding of your current family law situation, how it’s changing, and what outcome you’re looking for. We will begin to help you craft a legal strategy with the information you provide, although we cannot provide specific legal advice at the initial consultation. If you’ve brought in any paperwork or documentation, we’ll give it a quick look over to see how it may impact your case.

Our team will also ask questions about how you have handled similar issues in the past and what type of approach you may want to take. This is important because there are so many ways to tackle family law cases. While some prefer a more traditional adversarial approach, others want a cooperative approach that allows them to work as a team with their ex. Our goal is to pick the approach that fits your needs and expectations.

We’ll also give you plenty of time to ask your questions – we want you to have the chance to figure out if we’re the right law firm for you!

Issues to Consider as You Prepare for Divorce

Much of our time in our family law division is spent on divorce. This is the most common family law issue—after all, close to half of marriages end in divorce. Whether you and your spouse are in agreement on ending your marriage or you’re expecting a contentious fight, you can rely on us to handle your divorce issues efficiently and compassionately. Some of the key issues you’ll need to settle with your ex-spouse in a divorce include:

  • Division of assets and debts: This is one situation where having more money isn’t always a good thing. The more a couple has, the harder it is to divide it all up. A couple with limited assets may just leave the marriage with what they had beforehand, while a couple with substantial assets may have a long list of properties and assets to work through. Colorado, like many other states, is an equitable distribution state. The goal of the court is to distribute assets in a fair way, even if that means it’s not equal. Assets to think about as you prepare include the marital home, vacation properties, retirement accounts, checking and savings accounts, college savings accounts, and vehicles.
  • Child support: Child support usually follows a basic formula in Colorado, but it’s not uncommon for couples to agree on a different amount that provides for their children and supports both parties’ budgets. The Court may sign off on the parties’ agreement even if it’s different from the child support worksheets if the court finds there is a sufficient legal basis and it’s in the best interests of the child/children.
  • Child custody: Colorado refers to child custody as “parenting responsibilities,” using “parenting time” in lieu of physical custody and “decision-making responsibility” instead of legal custody. At all times, the legal standard is what is in the the best interests of the child. As you negotiate, remember to think about school breaks, holidays, birthdays, and other days that will fall outside the typical schedule.
  • Spousal support: While spousal support isn’t always awarded in Colorado divorces, it may be relevant to your case if there’s a major income disparity and the marriage is at least 3 years.

A Castle Rock divorce lawyer at Elkus & Sisson can help with all of these matters and more. During the course of divorce, many related issues pop up that you may not have been prepared for or anticipated. We’ve been through nearly every conceivable scenario and curve ball, and we’ll be ready for you.
