If you are visiting this website, it is likely that you and your family are in the midst of a strenuous conflict, looking for answers and how to proceed.
Our firm strives to practice family law with Christian principles. Our purpose as attorneys in family law is to peacefully resolve the issues in hopes that court intervention and dispute is minimal.
Unfortunately, strenuous circumstances can plague relationships; this is an unavoidable truth that many families know all too well. Like most states, Colorado has adopted the premise that neither party is required to prove a cause for divorce, but rather, state that the marriage is irretrievably broken. With this low standard, some spouses believe there is little to lose, and more to gain, from a marital dissolution. Nothing can be further from the truth.
Many attorneys who practice family law would tell you that initiating a divorce is not a big deal, or is even the best option. Our firm believes that the breakdown of a family should be avoided whenever possible, whether this is a divorce or legal separation. In all areas of life (emotional, financial, spiritual, etc.), focusing on resolving the issues within the relationship, mending wounds, and relinquishing any vestiges of selfishness and self-interest will promote healthy relationships and will bring renewal to hurtful and dark circumstances.
Often one spouse is left with no choice but to defend himself or herself in the legal process. The goal is to limit the damage that occurs during the harsh reality of a divorce.
Whether you are considering a divorce, your spouse is divorcing you, or you are facing other family law issues; our firm is honored to walk with you through this difficult, trying, and important time in your life.
