When I began my journey to start a new life on my own, separate from my husband, I was terrified by what I expected my experience to be while getting divorced. I’d received rave reviews of Samuel J. Stoorman and Associates from a family friend and I couldn’t have asked for better people to be by my side every step of the way. They guided me with excellent educated advice which allowed my focus to remain on picking myself up and starting again. I had the true pleasure of working closest with Annalies. What a gem! I will be forever grateful for this helpful, knowledgeable, comforting team. Thank you for everything.
As a marriage dissolves, the complex issue of division of property can be emotionally charged and difficult to resolve. In these situations, it is important to seek help as soon as possible from an experienced lawyer. Talking through the issues early in the process can often make the division of property much easier down the road.
Spouses often have difficulty determining what is shared “marital” property, what is one party’s “non-marital” property and how to divide their property equitably. In these situations, it is important to seek help from an experienced divorce lawyer.
At Stoorman, Hanson & van der Valk, P.C., we provide professional and individualized representation to clients during a divorce, which nearly always includes property division issues. Our law firm is dedicated to helping individuals and families with their divorce and family law matters. We will meet with you to fully understand your situation, explain your rights and the property division process, and work with you to find the best solutions. We handle asset division matters throughout the front range of Colorado.
Attorneys Who Will Advocate for You
Colorado is an equitable distribution state. This means that the courts will divide property fairly, but not always equally, based on numerous factors. Because every marriage is unique, determining what is equitable is not always easy, and the valuation and allocation of certain assets such as businesses, stock options, pension plans and retirement accounts can be complex. Seeking experienced legal representation early on in the process is in your best interest.
Our attorneys are fully prepared to assist with even the most complex property division matters. We will make every effort to help you and your spouse settle these matters through negotiation or alternative dispute resolution. If this is not possible, we also are accomplished trial lawyers who will fully advocate for you in court.
