Whether your divorce is a high-asset, hotly contested divorce or an amicable, uncontested divorce, Chalmers Family Law can assist you with all stages of the proceedings.  Even an uncontested divorce involves strict procedural requirements and a solid separation agreement in order to prevent future problems, so it is always crucial to consult an experienced attorney. 

Spousal Maintenance

Spousal maintenance is also known as spousal support or alimony. Judges have the discretion to award spousal maintenance based on a number of factors including the division of marital property, the length of the marriage, each spouse's income and work history, and the needs of the requesting spouse. 

Child Custody

Parenting Time (sometimes referred to as custody or visitation) and Decision-Making are often the most contested issues in any family law case.  Brett is an experienced attorney who will fight for a parenting plan that is truly in the best interest of your child.   

Child Support

In most child custody cases, one parent will be ordered to pay child support. The amount of child support awarded to a parent is based on each party's income, the division of parenting time, child care and health insurance costs, the needs of the child, and a host of other factors.  

Military Divorce and Custody

Divorce for military servicemembers of any status presents unique issues. It is important to consult an attorney with experience and knowledge regarding how deployment, military regulations, retirement and other benefits, and how both Federal and Colorado state law apply to a military divorce. 

Prenuptial Agreements

If you are proactive, we would love to help you prevent litigation in the future by drafting an effective "prenuptial"/premarital (or even a post-marital) agreement.
