Divorce can have a profound and lasting effect not only on your finances, but also on your relationships with your children and your ex spouse. Due to the emotional aspects of divorce, it can be difficult for many people to determine what is in their best interests.
At the Law Offices of Steven M. Werner, P.C. in Colorado Springs, I guide clients through every step in the divorce process, including:
- Dividing marital property such as automobiles, furniture, bank accounts, securities, real estate, pensions and debts
- Determining custody of your children
- Calculating how much child support you will have to pay or are entitled to receive
- Determining whether you will have to pay or are entitled to receive spousal support
- Ending your marriage
While you and your spouse can negotiate your own divorce settlement agreement, you should do so with some knowledge of Colorado law. What you don't know could hurt you. Without an attorney's advice, you could end up agreeing to a settlement that is unfair or one-sided.
You have rights under Colorado law and only an experienced lawyer can give you a realistic expectation of the outcome you could expect if your case was tried in front of a Colorado judge. While most divorce cases can be settlement by negotiations, you may need to try some issues in order to obtain a fair outcome.
