Legal disputes often involve highly emotional situations. Having an experienced attorney on your side can help you avoid much of the stress and avoidable pitfalls that come with going through a divorce, child custody dispute, protection order, car crash, or other personal injury case. Let Brett and Erin guide you through this process.
Personal Injury/Civil Litigation
If you are injured because someone else failed to be reasonable, whether driving or on the property of another (premises liability), the process of pursuing your claim can be complicated and procedurally drawn-out. Erin can assist you through every step of the process. She is compassionate about her clients and cares about fighting for the underdog, whether the "other side" is a huge insurance company or a large corporate landowner.
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 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 and Visitation
Parenting Time (custody) 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.
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 can present unique issues. It is important to consult an attorney with experience and knowledge regarding how deployment, military regulations, and the overlap between federal and Colorado law can affect a military divorce.
