Consulting during and after your divorce
You do not have to hire an attorney to participate in your case from start to finish. You can hire an attorney for divorce consulting at their hourly rate, on an as needed basis, or hire with an attorney to handle just certain aspects of your case.
In Colorado attorneys’ can offer ‘unbundled legal services’ prior to and during the course of a divorce or post- divorce matter, without being involved for the entire case.
This means that you are in charge of your divorce and can have an attorney available to answer your questions as they come up. This can be very beneficial for those who are working with a mediator to dissolve the marriage or are negotiating with their spouse and /or do not have the funds to hire an attorney full time.
This approach may be the choice of those individuals who are able to communicate with each other and there is still a level of trust between them.
It is important to understand that I can offer this type of advice to only one party to the divorce. The other party may, at their option, meet with another attorney for their advice.
I can offer you my opinion on the overall case, or offer assistance on specific matters such as explaining how a case proceeds through the courts, how our Colorado maintenance and child support statutes work and explain and help you prepare a parenting plan for your children. I can prepare documents and stipulations (legal agreements) for your signature. I can assist you in preparation for an upcoming ISC (initial status conference), mediation or court hearing. (I can work along with a certified divorce financial planner if needed in your case. )
Additionally, I can provide advice regarding pre and post nuptial agreements, modification of child support, parenting time and maintenance.
