Colorado Separation Agreements
When you file for divorce, many assets and debts must be assessed and divided. This can be a confusing and complicated process. All assets and property must be “equitably” divided between the two parties, which can be quite difficult, especially in long marriages. Dividing and allocating property, assets, and debts are the main, and often most complex, focus points in resolving a divorce proceeding.
Given the complexities involved in creating effective separation agreements,
working with a capable attorney often makes a significant difference.
At Feldmann Nagel Margulis, our legal team will handle
s all the legal hurdles while keeping you well-informed and central to decisions
involving your unique needs and goals. It is important that you have counsel
who is looking out for your best interests.
What is a Separation Agreement?
A separation agreement divides all real estate, motor vehicles, cash and bank accounts, life insurance policies, household goods and personal property, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, securities and investment accounts, pensions, profits sharing and retirement funds, and debts. It also determines how taxes will be handled going forward, any awards of maintenance (alimony), child support, and any other terms deemed necessary to resolve all issues of the marriage. As all of these issues can have a profound, long-term impact, you need to choose capable legal representatives to work for you.
Just as with all family law issues, your separation agreement will be unique to you and your family. Our legal team works hand-in-hand with you to make sure we understand precisely how to best meet your particular objectives.
