Divorce is one of the most difficult things that a person can go through. It involves a complex mix of emotions and challenges you may have never encountered before. Your world will forever change as will your relationship with your spouse and children.

How Divorce May Affect You
At Hogan Omidi, PC, our founding partner wrote the Colorado Family Law Practice Series, the go-to reference book relied on by judges and family law attorneys throughout Colorado. We have an in-depth understanding of the law and can explain how it can affect your life when you make the difficult decision to go through a divorce.
While every divorce is different, some of the legal issues that may be involved include:
- Property division – Colorado is an equitable distribution state. When you get divorced, you and your spouse (or the court) must determine a fair way to divide your marital property, this may not always end in a 50/50 split. Each spouse will have the right to keep their separate property, which generally includes the original value of property you had before your marriage, property addressed in a valid prenuptial agreement, and the original value of property you received as a gift or inheritance during the marriage. An experienced lawyer can help you evaluate various marital assets, including businesses, real estate holdings, retirement accounts, investment portfolios, and other marital assets and debts. We can work toward a fair property settlement.
- Spousal maintenance – Spousal maintenance may be an issue in divorce, especially for high earners. Our Greenwood Village divorce attorneys can discuss your needs and and desires while focusing on achieving your long-term goals.
- Child custody – Child custody in Colorado is determined based on the child’s best interests. At Hogan Omidi, PC, we value your long-term goals, which may include having a positive co-parenting relationship with your spouse. We may recommend mediation or other avenues to help steer you toward a more amicable resolution.
- Child support – Just as both parents should have a say in the parenting of their shared children, both parents are also financially responsible for their children. We can help you work with your spouse to determine a fair plan to financially care for your children.
While our divorce lawyers are experienced trial attorneys, we will also consider alternatives to help you resolve your divorce case with minimal conflict and stress.
