Your divorce or other family law matter is one of the most difficult procedures that you will do in your lifetime.
The result is usually predictable because of how Colorado law is applied by the courts.
That is a good reason to get your case done ASAP. You should be able to get your case completed, including the completion of all documents, even before your case is filed with the court.
With the proper help, you can get your case completed with a minimum of attorney fees and costs, time, while saving family relationships. Most retainers at the beginning of a case are in the $1500 to $2500 range.
Except that the pre-fiiing mediation retainer is usually $1,000. And a document review is usually $300.
You might begin by reviewing the case studies, to consider the approach that might work the best for you.
The case studies are summarized as follows:
Make sure that you focus on your credibility as well as the other party's credibility because of its importance in your case.
Although mediation or a similar approach is usually the most effective, sometimes that option is not available to you.
If you cannot begin with a mediated approach, then at least move forward in a spirit of cooperation.
But, if you can't mediate effectively, then the best way to get the case done is to schedule a permanent orders hearing as soon as possible. Don't drag out the process for months while you are getting nothing done and paying a lot of attorney fees.
