Premier Colorado Divorce Attorney | Metro Denver
Obtained 50/50 parenting time for my client with two school-aged children against the contention that my client should only have every other weekend. I successfully argued that the other party's majority parenting time during the marriage was a normal "division of labor" that provided a benefit and made sense during the marriage but did not apply (and made no sense) after the marriage was disolved.
House was awarded to my client when the other party argued that it should be sold with the equity split between the parties. The other party maintained this position even though we offered to "buy out" their equity. Our winning strategy was to show that their children were very familiar and comfortable in the house. Selling it would magnify the stress of the divorce and rip away a "comfort zone." We continued that since the other party wanted to sell, they must not care about their children's stability...unlike my client.
Minimized the maintenance (spousal support) my client was required to pay. Client was married to a stay-at-home spouse who argued for lengthy maintenance payments since the spouse had to stay home to take care of a child from another relationship. We reached a favorable settlement by:
- Showing that my client had no responsibility for the relationship between the spouse and child - So the spouse needed to find a job.
- Creating a fixed maintenance amount for a fixed time that would terminate and could not be extended or modified by the court.
Received a high child support ruling against spouse who claimed non-employment due to harsh financial conditions. The spouse claimed there were no present opportunities in the industry due to massive downsizing and a bad economy. Agreeing with me, the court imputed a high monthly income on the spouse. After I presented the evidence and arguments, the court found that the spouse was shirking their obligation by not looking elsewhere for a job, changing industries, and somehow managing to self-support with lodging, food, clothes, etc., yet not finding anything for the child.
Won relocation ruling allowing my client to relocate to another state with their child against the wishes of the other party. The court was persuaded by our evidence showing that the child was much more bonded with my client, my client needed to relocate because the fiancé(e) was gainfully employed there. Also showed that the other party was not very involved in the child's life.
Obtained substantial parenting time for my client who had substance abuse issues. From the start of the case, we worked on a rehabilitation plan and retained a therapist and counselor to provide treatment and testify favorably at trial. Additionally, I helped in getting the trial date set far out so that a history of successful rehabilitation could be shown.
In a substantial assets case, I assisted my client in creatively dividing marital assets as a whole so that individual assets would not need to be split up. This saved the client attorney fees and shortened the case.
In a case against a professional athlete, I obtained a child support award far in excess of the state guidelines recommendation, in part because the athlete could not afford the time to fight in court. An extremely beneficial settlement was reached. The moral here is that I try to make sure that my client gets at least what's fair - But if I can get more than fair (and my client agrees to the strategy), I will!
I could keep going on and on because I have many successful divorce case stories. Of course, I can't go to much into detail because I always protect my client's identities. However, I encourage you to contact me for a consultation about your situation. There is very little I haven't seen or dealt with...
