We understand there are a ton of questions swirling around in your head right now. We know it feels like there is a lot of uncertainty about your future and confusion about what you should do. You might be asking things like:

  • What are the specific Denver laws that will affect my divorce? Do I need to be a Colorado resident to get a divorce? How long will it take? How often will I need to go to court, and where?
  • What will happen to the side business that I run, or our home, or any other assets we own?
  • Who will have custody of my children? What if my spouse wants to move out of state after the divorce?
  • How can I support myself financially? Will my former spouse be required to pay alimony?
  • What should I do if I’m being threatened by my spouse because I want to leave?
