Experienced Denver Divorce Attorneys
You and your spouse have made a life together. But the bond you share, no matter how strong it may be, can face unexpected challenges. People can change over time, and you may feel like you and your spouse are no longer compatible. No matter the reason for ending your marriage, you may have made the difficult choice to move forward in your life without your partner.
This is not an easy decision. A divorce is one of the most stressful times for you and your family. At Gebhardt Emerson Moodie Bonanno, LLC, our mission is to help you live more and worry less, even in the midst of your family law case. We understand the complex emotions present in a divorce, and we are here to help you make the right decisions at each crucial step in your case.
What Happens In A Colorado Divorce?
Your divorce will likely involve an exchange of detailed financial summaries and statements, at least one court appearance (unless you have chosen to engage in the collaborative divorce model or have resolved matters outside of court), mandatory mediation, and, ultimately, either resolution by agreement or a decision from the judge assigned to your case.
The end result of your case will be court orders regarding property division, division of debt and spousal support, and, if you have children, you will also have orders regarding parenting time, decision-making and child support. These orders can be the result of either an agreement or an order issued by a judge after you have been to a permanent orders (divorce) hearing.
With more than 40 combined years of experience, our legal team is prepared to guide you through the divorce process. Whether your case requires litigation (court appearances in front of a judge), or whether you and your soon-to-be former spouse choose to resolve matters outside of court (to include divorce mediation), GEM Family Law attorneys have the drive and creative strategies to help you achieve your goals and best outcomes.
How Will You Know If Divorce Is Right For You?
This is a very personal decision that only you can make. There may be signs that your relationship is struggling, and repeated attempts to fix things have only led to more problems. Our attorneys are not going to pressure you to end a relationship just to get a case. Our role is to serve as your guide throughout the process, help you make informed decisions and advocate for you when facing disputes. We want you to be able to focus on your well-being instead of being caught in the stress of divorce.
What Will Happen To Your Kids?
This is one of the most common questions that we hear from parents going through a divorce. The reality is that there is no easy answer to this without knowing what is happening in your case. When we meet, we can talk to you about what we believe the custody options are in your specific situation. Once we know the facts and understand your goals, we can design a child custody strategy that helps you protect the time you get to spend with your kids in the future.
Do You Really Need A Divorce Attorney?
We hear almost every day from people who decided to represent themselves in their divorces. They made agreements regarding child custody or property division, and then they find that these decisions were not in their best interests. They may be unable to spend time with their children or end up struggling financially because they did not realize they had options when it came to dividing their marital property.
You should never make a decision in your divorce without talking to an experienced attorney. Whether this is your first time going through a divorce or you have been through the process before, you need to make sure you are making informed decisions. Once you make these choices, it is often impossible to change them later, so it is extremely important to get things right the first time.
