Divorce: An Overview

When a couple separates, there are tons of decisions that must be made. During this emotional time, it is important to have someone who can think rationally and represent your best interests. At my firm, J.P. Martin Law Group, I represent clients throughout Colorado. I can listen to your concerns, examine your situation and help you find the best possible solution.

Guiding You Through These Difficult Decisions

There are a few ways to start the divorce process. The first and most obvious is to file for divorce. The second is to file for separation. Separation means you are still legally married but are living apart. This is often used by people who aren’t sure if they want to permanently split up. It can also be used for couples who share health benefits or are each other’s next of kin. The third option is to annul the marriage. This means that you are basically saying the marriage never existed.

After determining how to proceed, there are still many things to decide. If you have children, custody arrangements will need to be made. If you cannot reach an agreement on your own, the court will have the final say. Whether you want joint custody or sole custody, I will do everything I can to represent you and your children. As time goes on, your wants and needs may change. I can help clients who need assistance with post-decree matters and want to update the terms of their divorce or custody arrangement.
