If you have to go through a divorce, do you want a lawyer who practices in several other areas or do you want a lawyer who truly understands family law? At McGuane and Hogan, P.C., our partners wrote the reference book on Colorado family law that the majority of lawyers, judges and others use. We know the law and we can explain exactly how it will affect you during, and after, your divorce.

Our law firm is one of the top five family law firms in the state. We are well-known in Denver and throughout the region for handling complex and high net worth divorces. Our attorneys approach every case with sensitivity and compassion for your situation. We look at your unique circumstances and find the right solution. We strive to meet your goals and protect your interests and assets during a complicated and sometimes trying process.

How Divorce Will Affect You

Colorado is an equitable distribution property division state, meaning that property is divided fairly between spouses. Child custody is determined based on the best interests of the child. The state wants both parents to be involved in their children's lives. Each parent has certain rights and responsibilities regarding his or her child, including paying child support and a right to parenting time for the noncustodial parent. Depending on the disparity between you and your spouse in current income and earning potential, spousal support may also be an issue.

Our attorneys will sit down with you and discuss your needs and goals for the outcome of your divorce. We will protect your important assets and find places you can compromise with your spouse. Every case is prepared for court but we find that negotiation is frequently the most productive way to resolve your case.

You have a few options regarding how we conduct your case. We offer collaborative law services, in which you and your spouse and your respective attorneys agree to work together to come to a settlement. We also use mediation and arbitration, where appropriate, to resolve potential sticking points.

We have extensive experience in handling contested divorces, where a couple is unable to agree on anything. We are aggressive litigators and will fight to get you your fair share of marital property and parenting time.
