Family law matters require counsel that is both experienced and compassionate. My firm, Karin Johnson Chatfield LLC, has provided Colorado families with strong legal support on a variety of sensitive issues for more than 30 years. Through hard work and dedication, I help my clients achieve the best possible outcome in legal matters that will affect the rest of their lives. Whether you need divorce representation, assistance drafting a property division agreement, or information on adoption in Colorado, I provide you with step-by-step guidance until your case is resolved.
Whether you are going through a contested or uncontested divorce, it is in your best interests to hire an experienced attorney. I help you understand the grounds for divorce in Colorado, obtain the necessary forms, and ensure your paperwork is properly filled out for filing.
If you and your spouse cannot agree on how to divide your assets and property, the court will intervene. Having handled countless divorce proceedings throughout the state, I understand the division process and work diligently to protect your assets and property. Should settlement negotiations fail due to disagreements over property division, alimony, or child support, I am fully committed to resolving your case through fierce litigation.
Concerns over child custody and visitation can turn an otherwise amicable divorce into a prolonged courtroom battle. In Colorado, the court favors a joint custody agreement so long as it is in the best interests of the child. My goal is to help you and your spouse come to a mutually beneficial agreement that preserves the health and well-being of your children. However, if you and your spouse cannot agree on a custody plan, I will press to ensure your parental rights are upheld and your children protected until your case is fairly resolved.
Contrary to popular opinion, marital agreements are not just for the wealthy. All couples can benefit from having a sound prenuptial or postnuptial agreement in place so that they are protected in the event of a breakup. Drawing on my decades of experience in divorce law, I assist you in drafting a comprehensive agreement that covers:
When appropriate and effective, marital agreements can strengthen a relationship. I work closely with you and your spouse to ensure your prenuptial or postnuptial agreement accurately reflects your wishes.
Making the decision to adopt can bring an unparalleled level of joy into your life. However, without knowledgeable legal counsel, the adoption process can be complicated and stressful. I am able to draw on more than three decades of experience helping families with newborn adoptions, adult adoptions, kinship adoptions, stepparent adoptions, and third-party adoptions through various methods:
If you are considering adoption, I offer a free consultation so you understand what the process may entail. I look forward to helping you expand your family here in Colorado.
