Summary

While some attorneys avoid high-stress situations, I find my purpose there. It is at those times when an experienced and professional attorney is needed the most. I have several years of litigation experience and have completed over 40 jury trials, but I am also intent on finding the best resolution for my clients--financially, mentally, and emotionally--even if that means settlement without trial.

Q. Will my ex have to count his income “assistance” on our financial worksheet?
A: When filling out a sworn financial statement, he should claim income from any source, including from his mother. That said, it can be difficult to enforce this if she is paying him in cash. You may need to get approval from the court to request her bank statements/financial documents as well as his if this is a major concern. In addition, there is little stopping them from stating/deciding that her assistance to him is actually a debt, which could complicate things. As for the child support worksheet, once again, he should include income from any source (unless specifically exempted by statute), but you'll have the same concerns with proof. However it is that you came to know he is receiving funds from his mother, it might be good to document that (even if just by writing down the date you learned this and how). For more specifics on what qualifies as income and how to verify the same, consider reaching out to a Family Law attorney. Best of luck with your potential move and modifications.
Q. Hello, My ex has filed a motion to modify parenting time, how do I respond please? Thank you!
A: To respond to a motion to modify parenting time, you can use the Colorado Court forms (form number JDF 1315) found at https://www.courts.state.co.us/Forms/SubCategory.cfm?Category=Divorce. Be aware that you must file your response WITHIN 21 DAYS of the date you received your ex's motion, or you risk his request being granted without your response. Reach out to a family law attorney for more information or help with filing the response.
Q. My mom passed in 2010. She has real estate that we have been paying taxes on. No written will. Died in AZ, land in CO.
A: To transfer real property (even vacant land) to heirs, you'll need to open probate in Colorado (or what's called "Ancillary Probate" if probate was already opened in AZ). The Colorado Courts website has some good information and instructions on how to do this: https://www.courts.state.co.us/Forms/SubCategory.cfm?Category=Trusts, or you can reach out to a probate attorney to help you file the appropriate paperwork and notify all the correct people.
