- Guide you through the Colorado court system;

- Represent you in hearings, negotiations, and trials;

What is Family Law?
Family law consists of a body of statutes and case precedents that govern the legal obligations between individuals. The individuals in family law proceedings are typically related by blood or marriage.
Common Family Law Cases
Most family law cases are related to marital relationships, the dissolution of marital relationships, or the breakup of romantic relationships. These cases may include but are not limited to the following:
- Premarital agreements
- Separate maintenance or alimony
- Paternity or parentage
- Property division
- Child custody (Allocation of Parental Responsibilities)
- Child support
- Domestic violence
- And more
Family law encompasses domestic violence of those in close quarters like family members and roommates. It also governs adoptions and guardianships.
Mediation in Family Law Cases
A mediator is a third-party neutral whose goal is to help the parties reach an agreement on unresolved issues. The mediation process is confidential.
Typically, each party to a case is settled in a room with their mediation attorney. The mediator travels back and forth between the two rooms relaying information.
Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may choose to voluntarily enter into mediation with your spouse, or you may be ordered to do so by the court.
It is not necessary to reach an agreement on every issue for a mediation to be a success. The parties may leave any outstanding issues for a court hearing or trial.
Should a mediation agreement fall through, nothing said or verbally agreed upon in mediation can be brought up later in court due to confidentiality. However, a mediation agreement may be referenced when it is written down, signed by both parties and submitted to the court.
As the mediation process is confidential, only named parties to the case and their attorneys may attend. The opposing party may offer their express consent to the presence of a support person but is not required to do so.
