As your dedicated attorney, I am committed to working closely with you throughout the entire process, navigating the legal complexities of your case, and ensuring your goals and needs are met.
Here’s how I can help you achieve your desired outcome.
A Legal Plan That Works
At Boney Law, we have tried and true legal plans and procedures to manage your needs through the intricacies of divorce legal proceedings and the Colorado legal system.
I promise to give you the service you need by using the following strategies and approaches:
I have 17 years of experience handling divorce cases in Colorado, which require a minimum of 91 days to dissolve the marriage. I can help you with such proceedings as dividing marital property and debt, child support, identifying the custody of children, and spousal support.
Annulments are uncommon legal proceedings requiring a very specific set of conditions to be valid. If you were married under duress, could not marry, or entered a void marriage, you could qualify for an annulment. I’ll help you determine whether or not you qualify for an annulment or if there is a better route for your separation or divorce.
I’m an expert in military divorces for spouses currently serving or in the reserves or national guard. Military divorces present a whole host of unique issues that require specialized knowledge that you can find here at Boney Law. I am well-versed in proceedings involving the division of military retirement, disability income, 20/20/20 benefits, and more.
Division of Property and Debt
All property acquired during your marriage, such as real estate, assets, bank accounts, etc., is required by Colorado law to be divided equally, which in most cases means fairly depending on the circumstances. I can help you review your property and debt to ensure your assets are distributed fairly.
Marital Property Issues
Marital property refers to all property acquired from the date of the marriage, including debt, =during your marriage that holds any value. Colorado law ensures this property is divided equitably, which usually means equally between the parties. I can offer my service to help you understand this process and resolve any disputes arising when dividing assets.
Similar to a divorce, legal separation in Colorado ensures assets are equitable divided, child custody matters are finalized and any form of spousal support is put into effect. Unlike divorce, you are still legally married when implementing a legal separation, which means you still have access to certain rights such as health insurance. If you are unsure if a divorce is right for you, I can help you understand the pros and cons of legal separations and why it might be the best option for your needs.
Common Law Marriage
If you entered into a common law marriage, or a marriage without obtaining a marriage license but have been cohabitating, have held yourselves out to be married, or had the intention of marrying, you will still need to legally dissolve this marriage. I can help you understand the laws surrounding common law marriage and get you the results you desire.
Alimony, otherwise referred to as “spousal support” or “maintenance”, is a legal obligation imposed by the court, requiring one spouse to provide financial support to the other based on various factors, including income, employability, and financial need. If you have been directed to fulfill spousal support obligations or believe you are entitled to receive maintenance, I am here to guide you through the process, ensuring that you achieve your desired outcomes.

With 17 years of experience, I provide unmatched service and a personalized approach tailored to your unique case. Here’s what you can expect from me.
