What our clients say about us:
After years of frustration and
being told to "give up" on gaining custody of my stepchildren, my
husband and I turned to Anna Bond. She not only fought for
us, but she fought for our children. She was the calm voice
leading us through the storm. She listened to us and believed
in us when other attorneys did not. There were many times we
felt like it was a losing battle, and that we had no hope.
Anna was always there to push us through and to remind us that it could
be done. Being able to know my children are in a safe
environment has completely changed all of our lives. I can't
imagine anyone I would recommend higher, and I think of what she has
done for us on a daily basis. THANK YOU! Carrie A
was a time of major confusion and upheaval and Anna Bond really helped
me get grounded and make smart choices. At a vulnerable mentally and
emotionally time, it was essential to have Anna’s strong, clear
presence looking out for my best interests. In the end, I was able to
resolve my divorce without litigation and court time, which I credit to
having good counsel up front. Thank you Anna. Seth B. (click here to read other client testimonials)
Frequently asked questions:
Many clients first and only experience with the law is in a
divorce. We recognize that you have questions and encourage
you to contact is to discuss any questions you may have.
HOW LONG DOES
A DIVORCE TAKE?
Colorado law does not allow you to get a divorce in less than 90 days.
Most cases take between six months and a year. It is our goal
to resolve your divorce as quickly as possible, including by agreement
WHAT DO I DO UNTIL THE DIVORCE IS OVER?
After filing for divorce, a hearing can be requested to decide who
lives where, who uses what property, payment of debts, amount of child
support, child custody, etc. These "temporary" orders will be in effect
until your divorce is final.
WHAT IF MY SPOUSE TRIES TO HIDE ASSETS OR SPEND ALL OUR MONEY?
All Colorado divorce cases have automatic restraining orders that
prohibit a spouse from hiding or disposing of property, disturbing the
other spouse, or removing the children from Colorado.
HOW WILL THE JUDGE DECIDE WHERE THE CHILDREN WILL LIVE, AMOUNT OF CHILD
SUPPORT, HOLIDAYS, ETC.?
The general rule of law is that Judge must decide what is in the "best
interests of the child." In general, unless there are good reasons not
to, both parents will have significant parenting time and will make
decisions about what is best for the child.
Child support is based upon the gross income of each parent. The child
support includes childcare, medical costs and other necessary expenses.
Both parents must pay their share based on each of their gross income.
WHAT IS MARITAL PROPERTY AND WHAT IS NOT?
All property is considered marital property unless it was acquired
before the marriage, by inheritance or by separate gift.
However, any increase in the value of separate property during the
marriage is considered marital property.
WHEN DOES A SPOUSE GET MAINTENANCE (also called Alimony)?
To receive maintenance/alimony, the Judge must find that you do not
have enough property or income to provide for reasonable needs; you
cannot support yourself through employment; or you are responsible for
a child whose condition prevents you from seeking employment.
HOW IS THE DIVORCE FINALIZED?
Most divorces are resolved by settlement. If we are unable to
reach a settlement, a hearing is held and Judge will decide all of the
issues in your case.
WHAT IF I CAN’T AFFORD LAWYER FEES?
If there is a large difference between you and your spouse’s income,
the Judge can order one spouse to pay all or a portion of the other
spouse's legal fees. This is decided on a case-by-case basis.
