Here For You. Here For Your Family.
Family law includes all the legal processes having to do with the interaction of families and the law, from divorce to adoption. These issues are more than just legal matters. They affect the most personal and important aspects of your life. When you visit a family law attorney, you need compassion, but you also need someone who can explain your options in clear, simple language so you can make the decisions that are best for your family.
Our goal at Pearman Law Firm, P.C., is to provide guidance to you through every step of your family law matter. We are here to restore child visitation with parents, assure fair child support, compute accurate alimony awards and help with other divorce matters in the Denver metro area. As your family law and divorce attorneys, we want to protect every aspect of your life and the lives of your kids.
We Know How Difficult Divorce Can Be. We Can Relieve Your Worries.
If there is a way to save your marriage, our lawyers will work to help you find it. But if divorce is unavoidable, we will protect your interests throughout the process. Two issues tend to be the most contentious parts of any divorce:
- Division of property: Proper division of marital property is essential to rebuilding your life and protecting your children’s futures. We will help you protect your share of the property. We can also help you determine how child support or spousal support will factor into your typical or high-asset divorce and the divorce process.
- Child custody and visitation: Child custody and visitation are called “allocation of parental responsibilities” (APR) in Colorado. Preserving your relationships with your children and protecting your parenting time are priorities of our family law practice.
If you have children, a Colorado judge will continue to have jurisdiction over child custody, visitation and child support issues after your divorce. Our lawyers can help you obtain modifications as your children and their needs change over time.
Handling Matters Outside Of Divorce
Legal separation and divorce are not the only issues covered by Colorado family laws. Pearman Law Firm, P.C., can help you with other family law matters, such as:
- Paternity issues: The process of determining paternity is just the beginning. Our lawyers represent unmarried mothers and fathers in legal custody, visitation and child support issues that arise after the breakups of relationships across the Denver metro area.
- Adoption matters: Helping loving parents adopt children is important to us. Come in and meet with our adoption lawyers and discuss ways to build your family in a safe and secure environment.
- Domestic violence and protection orders: Our family law lawyers obtain protective orders for people who are victims of spousal abuse. We also represent people who are wrongfully accused of abuse. Many innocent men and women are prevented from coming home and being with their children because someone has lied to gain an unfair advantage associated with a divorce or separation in Lakewood.
- Dependency and neglect: Allegations of abuse and neglect are taken very seriously by the police and courts in Colorado. If a social worker shows up at your door, it’s time to consult a lawyer as soon as possible to protect your parental rights.
If you handled your own family law case or had an attorney who forgot things or made mistakes, our lawyers can help you repair the problems. Call us for a confidential phone consultation.
What Is Family Law?
Family law encompasses a wide range of legal aspects of family relationships, such as parental rights and property rights of married versus single people.
Can You Handle Your Family Law Matter On Your Own Or Do You Need To Hire A Lawyer?
Many people can and do solve their own family law issues without the help of an attorney, but this can be a risky endeavor for several reasons: Non-lawyers are often unaware of issues to watch out for, such as health insurance and retirement accounts. Laws and legal precedents change, and a practicing family lawyer will know how to advise you in your best interests. Finally, it is in your best interests to be ready to respond quickly if your spouse makes unreasonable demands during your divorce process.
