What To Expect From Divorce

Divorce can throw your world off its axis. When it feels like things are spinning out of control, knowing what to expect from the road ahead can help you regain your footing.

There are a lot of myths about how divorce works. The truth is that divorce looks different for everyone because everyone's situation is different. At McBride & Drinkwine, LLC, in Denver, we tailor our approach to your unique needs.

How Long Will Divorce Take?

The length of your divorce will depend on a number of factors, including which county you live in, whether you and your spouse are able to reach a settlement or opt for litigation and how complex your assets are. When you meet with us in person, our lawyer can give you an estimate that is based on the specifics of your situation.

How Does Child Custody Work?

In Colorado, child custody is determined based on the best interests of the child. Unless there is a unique situation in which one parent poses a safety risk to the child, some form of custody is almost always granted to both parents.

I Want To Continue Living In Our House. How Do I Do That?

The house is an important piece of property to many people going through a divorce. While it may be possible to keep your marital home, doing so could mean giving up something else.

At our firm, we will lay out all of your options for asset division, so you can make an informed decision about what is best for you and your children.

Proving Fault In Divorce

A common divorce myth is that you have to provide a reason for the breakup of your marriage. This is not true.

Colorado is a no-fault divorce state, meaning you do not need a reason to divorce. It also means most courts will not even consider your reason for divorcing when approving your settlement or making a ruling.
