Family law issues are not just legal matters. They are profoundly personal in nature. If you’re going through a divorce, custody dispute or similar issue, then it’s important to work with an attorney you can trust. In Denver and the surrounding areas, the choice for representation is easy: Harrington Brewster Mahoney Smits, P.C.
We are entirely dedicated to family law, and our attorneys offer in-depth knowledge, comprehensive experience and compassionate representation. They understand what you’re going through, and they strive to be personally as well as legally supportive.
You Have Many Options When It Comes To Ending A Marital Relationship
Our lawyers provide advice and representation to anyone going through a divorce or legal separation. They offer a wide range of legal services, including assistance with:
- Mediated divorce
- Arbitrated divorce
- Collaborative divorce
- Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements
- Division of property, assets and debts
- Spousal maintenance (alimony)
- Protection orders in cases involving histories of domestic violence
- Appeals of court orders
- Same-sex divorce and other LGBTQ family law issues
Our attorneys are highly experienced in various forms of alternative dispute resolution, including mediation, arbitration and collaborative law. They strongly believe in the value of these processes, but they also understand that some cases require courtroom litigation. As such, they are prepared to resolve your case in whatever manner is necessary and most appropriate. They also offer unbundled legal services for clients who need only a little help with relatively straightforward divorces.
Let Our Team Advocate For You And Your Children
Matters related to kids are often contentious and stressful. Our attorneys are here to provide skilled guidance and advocate strongly on behalf of you and your children. Here are some of the many issues that they can assist you with:
- Child custody and visitation
- Child support
- Modifications to custody orders, including parental relocation modifications
- The seeking of emergency restrictions on parenting time if the actions of your co-parent threaten the safety or well-being of your children
A divorce or other major change can also disrupt children’s relationships with extended family members. In some cases, grandparents and other third parties may petition the courts for visitation rights. Whether you are a grandparent or a parent contesting such a petition, our family law lawyers can explain your rights and legal options.
Helping Families Grow While Remaining Legally Protected
There are many ways to create a family and to become a parent. From a legal perspective, the most straightforward path is giving birth to one’s own biological children with no help conceiving, but this option is not for everyone. Unfortunately, those who become parents through the use of assisted reproductive technology or through adoption often face significant legal hurdles that make the process slow and expensive.
Our attorneys are proud to help all types of families, and they are highly knowledgeable in adoption law as well as assisted reproductive technology law. They can guide you through all the paperwork and counsel you on major decisions to ensure that your family’s journey is as smooth as possible.
