Denver Family Law & Divorce Representation

A divorce or family law dispute can cause both emotional and financial hardship. The Denver family law lawyers at the law firm of Cantafio Hammond understand this difficult time in your life, and we work hard to help you resolve your family law matter efficiently and professionally. We will help you through a tough, emotional time with understanding and experience.

Our Experienced Attorneys Handle All Family Law Matters

  • Divorce or legal separation: All components of divorce, including marital asset and debt division, parenting ("child custody" and "visitation"), child support, spousal maintenance ("alimony") from the filing of the case through its conclusion.
  • Marital property division: We have experience in marital property division that includes complex asset portfolios: business valuation, division of 401(k) plans, pensions, and military retirement assets, division of partnerships or family-owned businesses, and other less common marital assets such as intellectual property, software licenses, vacation property, and others.
  • Child support: We can represent you during the determination of temporary child support while the divorce is ongoing, determination of the final support order, consideration of the payment of child care, health insurance, dental insurance, school fees, and other issues, and modification of child support when circumstances change.
  • Child support enforcement: Collections of child support through income garnishment and other means, or defense of allegations that you are in arrears.
  • Parental decision-making ("child custody"): We help divorcing parents or unmarried parents seek joint or sole parental decision-making orders or agreements.
  • Parenting time ("visitation"): We help our clients arrange for fair, age-appropriate parenting time that protects their relationship with their children, including seeking the appointment of professional evaluators. Often, relocation by one parent to another state or another area can affect the parenting time agreements, and we can help your family resolve the conflicts and disputes that may ensue in this rapidly changing area of law in Colorado.
  • Custody and support modification: When circumstances change substantially, we can help you apply for a post-divorce modification of court orders regarding parenting arrangements, spousal maintenance, or child support.
  • Spousal maintenance: When appropriate, one divorcing spouse may obtain an order of support from the other.
  • Family law services: We can address adoption, legal determination of paternity, marital agreements ("prenuptial agreements") and other legal issues.

We at Cantafio Hammond believe in settling family law disputes through mediation and negotiated settlement because these agreements can be more effective, more private, less expensive, and more likely to be followed than court orders. In addition, the less adversarial process can help build up a positive working relationship between parents — a relationship that will be needed in years to come. We have substantial experience practicing in front of the judges in Northwest Colorado and throughout Colorado using our experience to our client's advantage.

When mediation and negotiation are not appropriate, when there has been abuse, or when your interests and your children's best interests would best be protected in court, or when an amicable resolution cannot be reached, we will advocate vigorously on your behalf to help you obtain a favorable trial ruling from the court.
