Dividing Property And Assets

Colorado courts use the system of equitable distribution when dividing marital property in a divorce proceeding. "Property" includes all assets and debts acquired during the marriage and held at the date of separation. Importantly, equitable distribution does not mean "equal" division - it means "fair" division - and if your case goes to trial, the court will determine what is fair.

Our law firm frequently assists clients in negotiating and/or mediating property division issues without resorting to court intervention; this way spouses can divide their property in the manner they see fit. Marital property division can be difficult if the parties share assets such as a family business, real estate holdings or pension benefits. We have considerable experience helping clients develop creative solutions to challenging property division problems.

Our attorneys regularly work with forensic accountants to uncover co-mingled or hidden assets and conduct reliable business valuations. We also help clients take immediate action to protect their assets while their divorce is pending. For example, we could place a lien on your home or freeze certain bank and credit card accounts to ensure that marital assets and debts will remain in place until they can be properly addressed through settlement negotiations, mediation or courtroom proceedings.

Post-Divorce Modifications

Often a substantial change in circumstances affects the ability of a party to comply with the terms of a divorce settlement. When these situations occur, a court-approved post-divorce modification is necessary to alter child support payments, child custody, visitation and spousal maintenance (alimony) obligations. A loss of employment or the need to relocate to a different state are common reasons why an individual may need to modify a divorce decree.

At Kishinevsky & Raykin, we are here to support you both during and after your divorce. We utilize negotiation, mediation and litigation to protect the rights and interests of clients who are seeking a modification, as well as those who are opposing the change.
