Dissolution of Civil Unions in Colorado proceed and have the same requirements as a Dissolution of Marriage, it is simply captioned differently for more clarity. We have handled both the Dissolution of Marriages and the Dissolution of Civil Unions. We understand that even if it is a Civil Union the dissolution is no less sensitive or less difficult and we provide you with the extra knowledge and understanding you need through this process. An annulment is different from a Dissolution of Marriage or Civil Union. We will help you understand the differences and let you know if this is something you can do. The outcome of an annulment is significantly different from that of a Dissolution of Marriage and is also time sensitive. If you are seeking an annulment, please contact us as soon as possible so we can help you before deadlines occur.
A big concern for people going through the divorce process is maintenance (alimony). We know the concern for stay at home mothers and fathers, as well as working spouses. Colorado has a specific formula to figure out how much and how long the maintenance will be for. We will help you understand this formula and work for the best outcome for you and your family.
Colorado has a specific way of dividing marriage property amongst spouses. The best way to ensure you get the best outcome is to have a lawyer that understands the process and can work with you for a desirable result.

Children in Divorce
One of the biggest concerns for spouses going through a divorce are the children. This is a great concern for Colorado courts as well as for Broxterman Alicks McFarlane PC. We have handled many cases involving children and work closely with our clients to make sure that the children will be taken care of and affected as little as possible by the divorce. As experts in family law we know the importance of delicacy needed and make it a priority to make sure the children’s needs are met in all custody and support proceedings.
Colorado courts always want what is best for the children in the divorce process. There are a few different custodies awarded but mostly Colorado courts try for joint custody. We know that this can be one of the most difficult decisions during a divorce. Our lawyers provide you with the result driven service needed to make sure your children are safe and have the best possible outcome for them.
Colorado courts know the importance of child support for the children and figure in everything to determine how much should be paid and to whom. We have extensive knowledge of the way this is calculated and help you to understand the guidelines as well, so that we can best represent the information to the courts to make sure the children’s lives are affected as little as possible by the divorce. Our lawyers know the importance of making sure that the children will be well taken care of and we work closely with you to make sure that is achieved.
Sometimes going through a divorce leads one parent to relocate; this of course has some effect on the children and how the custody will proceed. If you or your spouse wants to leave with or without the children there are certain things that will need to be taken into consideration and that can be done. We aide you in getting the best results for your family.
