Our attorneys are experts in division of marital property, and we have the experience, skill and client-focused approach needed to help you solve your problems.
As part of the divorce and legal separation process, the court will divide marital property; therefore property division is typically one of the most significant areas of a divorce. Marital property is any property acquired during the course of the marriage, regardless of how it is titled, unless it is separate. Marital property often includes:
- Residential property (to include marital home, vacation homes, farms)
- Commercial property
- Investments (stocks, bonds, mutual funds, retirement plans, bank accounts)
- Pensions and retirement (including military retirement)
- Bank accounts
Colorado is an equitable distribution state, meaning every marital asset must be distributed equitably. However, equitable does not necessarily mean an equal split will occur.
Separate property is generally any property acquired prior the marriage and property acquired by gift or inheritance. Separate property may become marital property if separate property is placed into both names (commingled).
Our family law attorneys have extensive knowledge and experience in complex property division, and are experts at providing a client-focused experience while driving toward the goal of obtaining the best results possible.
Every attorney will tell you they put their clients first. That is true for Aviso Law but it’s how we go about it that sets up apart. We understand the difference between being prepared and aggressive in courtrooms, while being understanding and pragmatic in client meetings. We believe in being realistic as well as easy to work with through all the phases of your case, both in and out of court; this saves you money and time while still receiving the service you deserve with the goal of achieving desired results.
To us, success isn’t measured by the years we’ve spent behind a desk but by the careers we’ve built, the contacts we’ve made, and the thousands of clients we’ve served to protect jobs, families, education, and reputations. We developed our careers in Colorado’s military and civil courts, successfully defending clients from all walks of life. We come highly rated by our clients and have received professional recognition for our work.

We aim to be respectful, diligent, and cost-effective while practicing the highest standards of legal representation.
