As your attorney, it is my job to guide you toward the best possible outcome for your
divorce. I thoroughly consider your options when it comes to child support and
division of assets, as well as advise you on ways you can protect you
and your children's well-being. Here you can find answers to some
of the most common questions we encounter at my firm, The Samuelson Law
Firm. If you have more questions, feel free to reach out to me. I am always
available 24/7 for my clients.
We're in the early stages of our divorce. Should I close any bank accounts
or cut off credit cards?
Although it is not illegal, as the divorce moves forward, you will eventually
be asked to explain your actions to the court. I highly recommend you
to discuss this situation with your spouse first, especially if it is
a joint account. If you feel that you need to close these accounts, make
sure that you are ready to provide a compelling, reasonable explanation
as to why you decided to do so. As your divorce attorney, I can evaluate
your particular situation and advise you as to whether or not this action
would be wise.
Do I have to have a really good reason for my divorce?
According to Colorado law, divorce can be "no fault," meaning
that the only grounds for divorce need be that the marriage is beyond
saving. Therefore, each spouse's behavior does not come into consideration
when the court is deciding key elements of the separation, including alimony
and division of property.
Is it necessary for me to use the court to decide who gets custody of our child?
If both parents can come to a mutually agreeable and fair decision for
custody and visitation rights, then it is always preferable to handle
this aspect of your divorce outside of court. As the parents, you are
able to make decisions in the best interest of your child sometimes better
than a judge would be able to. However, if the parents are unable to agree,
you will have to take the matter to court.
