Family Law & Appeals
Areas of Practice
With so much at stake in a divorce, make sure you are getting the experienced counsel you need to guide you through the process of a Colorado divorce. Every situation is different and there is no "one size fits all" divorce settlement. Learn the difference between an equal and equitable division of assets, what is marital and what is separate property, what to expect at mediation, and what your rights are under Colorado law.
Post Decree Modifications
There are many reasons you or your ex may seek a post decree modification of your final orders involving maintenance (alimony), child support and parental responsibilities (custody and decision-making). Schaffner Law can guide you through the process of determining what terms can be modified and how to get a modification.
Child Support & Parenting Time
We know that maintaining your role in your child's life is one of the most crucial aspects of a divorce. Find out your parenting time rights and ensure you are paying or receiving the correct amount of child support.
If you have questions about an order you received in your case and whether it may be appealable, contact Schaffner Law to schedule an appellate consultation. Appeals are time sensitive, so do not delay in seeking help when you have questions about your appellate rights.
Prenups are used by many couples for different situations, such as second marriages, marriages later in life, and marriages where a party has significant separate assets. Contact Schaffner Law to learn more about how you and your partner might benefit from the security a prenuptial agreement provides.
With a background in commercial litigation, we are well-suited to help with your business dispute questions, including breaches of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, and business break-ups.
"My husband and I were in a drawn out appeals case. Our trial lawyer had initially said that he could represent us in our appeal, but after opposing counsel's brief came out he told us it was too complex and recommended we find an appeals attorney. We were terrified at the idea of bringing in a lawyer who did not know our case, but thank goodness we found Jennifer!" -CC
