What is Family Law?

Because attorneys practice so many types of law, it can be confusing to know which type of lawyer you need. Many people think that Family Law attorneys like myself only assist clients with divorce, but that is a myth. The truth is that divorces are far from the only thing I do.

Family Law includes several types of cases, such as:

  • prenuptial agreements (also called prenups)
  • postnuptial agreements (also called postnups)
  • cohabitation agreements
  • legal separations
  • annulments
  • mediation
  • adoptions including step parent adoptions
  • parenting time
  • maintenance (also called alimony or spousal support)
  • division of property
  • child support
  • civil unions
  • allocation of parental responsibilities
  • dependency and neglect proceedings
  • contempt
  • protection orders
  • post-decree issues
  • enforcement of court orders
  • relocations
  • grandparent proceedings
  • guardianships

Basically, any type of legal issue a family may have is “Family Law,” just what it sounds like in the name. The above are all Family Law cases I handle. If you or someone you know is in need of Family Law representation in the Greater Denver area, please have them contact me.
