Child Support - Dad paying bills

The calculation of child support in Colorado, whether it is in a divorce, child custody, or other case concerning the support of a child, is governed by statute. While the child support statute creates a formula to calculate support, a party will often dispute the numbers the other party wants to use in the formula. Our office of experienced family law attorneys can assist you with representation in cases concerning child support.

Property Division - Allocation of marital property and debts

The equitable division of marital assets and debts is a cornerstone of the Dissolution of Marriage Act, and after the issues addressing children, is one of the most important issues in domestic relations litigation. Our Denver divorce attorney team is prepared to meet with you and and listen to your needs, and discuss how we can represent your interests so that you receive your fair share of the marital estate. Schedule you FREE consultation now.

Grandparent visitation

Grandparents can seek visitation pursuant to statute. To do so, there must have been a case concerning the allocation of parental responsibilities involving the grandchild, OR the grandparent’s child who is the parent of the grandchild must be deceased. Contact us for a FREE initial consultation to discuss your case and other matters interrelated with a case concerning grandparent visitation.

Legal Separation

A common misperception is that a legal separation is merely a pause in the marital relationship prior to deciding whether to reconcile a marriage, or instead move forward and file for divorce. However, in Colorado a legal separation is nearly identical in Colorado to a divorce, and you should speak with one of our family law attorneys to learn more if you are contemplating a legal separation.

Dissolution of Civil Union

The legal landscape of same-sex unions is shifting dramatically in Colorado. While Civil Unions were legislated by the state legislature in May of 2013, court clerks in several Colorado counties are now issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. The law in this area is in flux. Talk to one of our experienced attorneys now to know your rights in this rapidly changing area of family law.

Paternity

Paternity actions are governed by Title 19 of the Colorado statutes, and is a legal process used to establish the paternity of a child. Genetic testing is usually used to provide scientific evidence of paternity, although that is not the only way to establish rights under the statute. Our family law attorneys are well-versed in paternity actions and are ready to assist you concerning your paternity case.

Dad, Daughter and Adoptive mom

The Stepparent Adoption procedure can be complicated, with many tasks that need to be fulfilled to complete the process. Our team of family law attorneys are able to represent parties seeking to complete the adoption process, as well as represent a parent whom may be the target of another parent’s improper effort to terminate his or her parental rights in order to complete a stepparent adoption.

Mediation

The mediation process is an excellent opportunity to attempt to resolve disputes. A prepared attorney can take advantage of this opportunity obtain a good deal for their client. At Sauer & Petterson Family Law, our team of family law attorneys are dedicated to putting our best efforts to resolve conflicts in your case without undue litigation. However, if mediation is unsuccessful, we are ready to litigate your case in court.

Protection Order

Domestic violence is a serious issue in many families in Colorado. Colorado civil protection order laws are on the books in an effort to reduce domestic violence and protect victims by allowing a victim to seek a protection order in court. Our Denver divorce attorneys have years of experience handling cases with domestic violence. Schedule a FREE initial consultation today to discuss your case with one of our attorneys.

Appeal

After you receive a final, appealable order in your case, you may believe the court made errors in its ruling. Contact our Denver divorce attorney team today to determine whether you have a case with a meritorious appeal. However, do not let too much time pass by; court orders must be appealed within a certain time frame and, if the deadline has passed, then your ability to submit an appeal will likely be barred.

Child Custody - Emergency Motion to Restrict Parenting Time

Sometimes, parenting time with a parent may endanger the child physically or emotionally. In that situation, it is important to seek prompt court intervention if the situation is serious. If you are facing this dangerous situation, or the other party has filed a motion against you falsely claiming an emergency exists, then a Denver family law attorney in our  firm is ready to assist you through this stressful situation. Call us at (720) 739-1960.
