Divorce is both stressful and challenging. In addition to the emotions involved, decisions have to be made about property division, custody and parenting time if there are children, and maybe spousal and child support payments. At the Law Office of Lori Crystal, LLC, we will help you make thoughtful choices.
For more than 30 years, attorney Lori Crystal has been providing thoughtful and knowledgeable family law services to clients in Castle Rock, Douglas, Elbert, Arapahoe, and Denver, Colorado. She stands ready to help you as well when divorce looms.
Lori’s firm prides itself on listening carefully and compassionately to arrive at the best possible path forward, so both spouses can make a fresh start for themselves. There is no one-size-fits-all formula, so you will get a personalized response.
Once you file for divorce in Colorado, you have a 90-day “cooling off” period. During that time, we can meet to discuss your situation and help you resolve issues with property division, custody and parenting time, and other contentious matters.
To file for divorce in Colorado, you merely need to be a resident for 90 days and then cite an "irretrievable breakdown" of the marriage, with no fault required. Then comes a 90-day waiting period.
Colorado is not a community property state in which everything is considered 50/50. Rather, the division of assets is based on what is considered to be “fair and equitable".
You don’t need to duke it out in court at a great financial and emotional cost. You can submit your own settlement agreement that you reach with the help of an experienced family law attorney.
