Unless you fit into the list at the top of this page, it is almost certainly worth it to hire representation. A small difference in the amount of spousal maintenance (alimony) paid each month makes a big difference over ten years of payments. That is just one example among many in which having someone committed to advocating for your interests can pay off and then some. For most of us, nothing is more important than having our kids’ futures, our retirement funds, investments, businesses and homes on the line. Cut corners elsewhere. Work with an experienced Colorado family law attorney to ensure you take your best shot at your best outcome.
Vernon Ready has been practicing law with an emphasis on divorce and child custody cases in Colorado since 2009. He has helped hundreds of clients make important legal decisions to protect their assets and loved ones, and he is always willing to meet with anyone who believes they might need the services of a Denver attorney.
So how do you know when you should call Attorney Ready? Read on to learn more about some of the most common situations that lead individuals like yourself to work with Mr. Ready.
Divorce does not always bring out the best in the parties involved. The dissolution of a marriage can be emotionally exhausting as well as challenging from a practical standpoint, as partners attempt to determine how to fairly divide their marital assets. The situation can get especially contentious when spouses share retirement benefits, own a business together, or need to determine custody of their children.
Unfortunately, if you think of your divorce as a battle or try to take everything from a spouse, you will both ultimately lose as court and attorney fees increase very quickly. Although you don’t control the opposing party’s approach, you certainly have the ability to reduce and manage that kind of loss. The laws governing divorce and child custody in Colorado are intended to prevent absolute winners and losers in these cases. Aiming for a clearly unfair outcome is a great way to aim for disappointment and unnecessary expense. Vernon Ready is a skilled negotiator and advocate who has helped many clients reach fair agreements, even when agreement seemed impossible.
If you have complicated assets, especially if you or your spouse started a business during the marriage, you should absolutely seek assistance with your divorce. As a solo practice attorney, Vernon Ready understands the demands of running a small business, and he has a special interest in assisting those who must divide a business started during the marriage. As an experienced divorce attorney, he has helped clients on both sides of business ownership, including the division of business interests and determination of income for the self-employed.
As mentioned above, divorces can be more contentious when spouses have children together. If your divorce case includes minor children, you will be required to propose a parenting plan that outlines how you and your former partner will share in making important decisions for your child, and you will need to work out a parenting schedule to determine how you will share custody. You want what is best for your child. Vernon Ready can help you come up with a fair parenting schedule that will benefit your son or daughter. If necessary, Ready Law can then help you present that schedule to a judge and explain why it is the best option for the child.
Attorney Ready can also assist if you need to modify existing parenting time or child support in the event that your circumstances or those of your former spouse have changed.
Deciding to adopt is a huge, life-changing decision. But once you have made that decision, you do not want it to be delayed because of legal obstacles that you never anticipated. You can help streamline the adoption process and avoid these roadblocks by working with Attorney Ready. He is particularly interested and well-versed in kinship and step-parent adoption (which has its own special procedural allowances) but is available to assist you with any kind of adoption.
