Ask a Colorado Springs Divorce Lawyer, Contact (719) 941-1127


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.
