Facing the issues related to legal separation, divorce, child custody, child support, maintenance, property division, contempt and other family matters can be the most stressful time of your life.  You may not be able to think clearly, since your emotions likely have or will enter into every decision.  Consider whether you need an advocate who is intuitive about your pain and worry, who in private and in confidence will be assertive with you and assist you in staying focused.

The simple truth is, inabilities to respect one another and to agree, and the emotional and physical pain associated therewith, result in negative family issues which, more times than not, result in a need to consult legal counsel.  If you are considering divorce, have issues regarding asset (property or business) valuation and division, debt allocation issues, retirement issues, an allocation of parental responsibilities, a modification of parental responsibilities, child support, maintenance, or other family issues, counsel at the Law Offices of Paul M. Gaide would be happy to consult with you and discuss your options with you and assist you in making choices which very likely will have long-ranging impact for you, your spouse and any children.

Colorado is a “no fault” divorce state.  As a result, while couples may want to have their say as to who is wrong or responsible for the divorce or separation, and while allocation of responsibility may be necessary for healing to take place, the fact of the matter is, such matters must be addressed outside of the legal process as such issues are irrelevant to the court proceeding.  Colorado law forces couples to focus on the practical parts of their parting, not the emotional. 

Finances, assets and liabilities, can be a major component of a divorce which must be dealt with properly.  Separation of pre-marital and marital assets, allocation of marital debt, division of marital property, asset valuations, retirement issues, and tax issues are all items which must be carefully considered.  Spousal support or maintenance, the amount, structure and duration thereof, can also present significant issues.

If you and your spouse have children, parental responsibilities (parenting time, custody, decision making) and child support issues will likely be top priorities.  Having counsel to assist you through these issues is important not only for you, but for your children as well - the touchstone of Colorado law is a focus on the best interests of the child.

If you have a family law issue, we would be happy to consult with you.  Please go to the “Contact Us” portion of our website, call us, or send an email to us briefly describing your circumstances. 

At the Law Offices of Paul M. Gaide, we realize that financial stresses often attend family law matters.  As a result, whenever appropriate, we will be happy to shepherd you through a collaborative process with the goal being an uncontested divorce.  This can be accomplished only if there is limited acrimony and both spouses desire a peaceful outcome.  If this is not possible, some couples may be better served with marital mediation/arbitration, which allows the parties and their counsel to sit down with a neutral party, in a neutral location, to obtain a third party’s experienced perspective and to discuss settlement. 

If consensual resolution of issues cannot be had, full litigation and presentation of your case to a judge for determination is always an option which we are capable of pursuing on your behalf.
