Emphasizing experience and meticulous preparation
Before the actual distribution of the property, your lawyer will need to determine what property will be distributed and the value of said property. Equitable distribution states classify property as either “marital property,” assets acquired during the marriage and available for distribution, or “separate property,” assets acquired prior the marriage and exempt from division. I have the necessary familiarity with Colorado’s equitable distribution laws to distinguish property as either marital property or separate property. I also have the skill to trace the commingling of separate assets with marital assets, prevent unfair distribution and ensure that no assets or debts are overlooked.
Marital property may include anything you have that could be considered an asset, such as:
- Stocks and bonds
- Bank accounts
- Investment accounts
- Marital home and vacation homes
- Home furnishings
- Retirement funds
- Pensions and annuities
Tailoring non-adversarial legal solutions
I strive to convert an otherwise stressful and contentious matter into a positive resolution. My experience has equipped me to handle negotiation and mediation when appropriate, affording you greater control over the outcome. But even if you and your ex-spouse are unable to initially agree on an equitable marital division, I act as fair and impartial mediators to help you both move forward after the divorce.
