Understand Your Needs When Selecting a Divorce Attorney in Colorado
Every divorce is different. This is why it’s important to understand what you need and convey that to your lawyer early in the process. Information such as the length of the divorce, the reason(s) for divorce, whether you have children, what assets you possess, and what separate property both parties have is important and plays into how a divorce is resolved in Colorado. During a professional consultation, your divorce attorney at Baumgartner Law will ask you many questions to get to know your situation better. Try to share as much information as you can from the beginning so that our legal team can make a strong case for you. Additionally, make sure to mention if you have any pre- or postnuptial agreements or other legal documents that relate to your marriage early on, as we will need to follow those to be in accordance with the law.
Financial Disclosure Affidavit
A divorce attorney will first have to prepare a sworn financial statement and a financial disclosure affidavit, a legal document that discloses your financial information and assets to the other party. This statement includes information such as what bills you’re paying, how much money is in your accounts, what assets you own, along with other monthly and annual expenses. You will also receive one from your spouse as this information will be used during the assets division process of the divorce. The divorce process varies depending on whether it’s a contested or uncontested divorce. In a contested divorce, your spouse wants to negotiate the terms of the divorce. Meanwhile, in an uncontested divorce, the other party will accept whatever terms you decide upon. Whatever type of divorce you are experiencing, you still need highly-rated legal counsel by your side to ensure your rights are protected every step of the way.
