I highly recommend Sam Stoorman and his associates for any legal counsel regarding divorce. I had been literally blindsided emotionally and Mr. Stoorman’s compassion for my situation gave me hope when I had believed there was no hope. During my divorce he was upfront with me from the beginning about the possible proceedings that would occur and how the cooperation, or lack thereof, of both parties would influence final expenses. He and his team worked diligently to make sure that everything in my divorce went as fairly as the law allowed. Although Mr. Stoorman and his staff were always very professional, quite often I felt like I was talking to a family friend. Mr. Stoorman and his team had the experience and knowledge base to understand what I was going through and they were there to help me navigate the difficult issues and start again. During all court proceedings it was clear that I was in very capable hands. Mr. Stoorman and his associates were true advocates for me and my children.
As of October 7, 2014, Colorado recognizes same-sex marriages. Now that same-sex marriage is acknowledged in Colorado, your rights under the Colorado Civil Union Act and under the Colorado Dissolution of Marriage Act are virtually identical, whether bound in matrimony or by civil union. Here is a link to more information: http://aclu-co.org/legislation/sb13-011-colorado-civil-union-act/
Currently several states do not recognize civil unions or same-sex marriages. As a result, it is important to understand the legal implications of your civil union or same-sex marriage should you decide to move out of state. Further, although the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) was struck down as unconstitutional by the United States Supreme Court, a myriad of conflicts remain between the federal and state laws as they relate to the financial implications of a dissolution of a same-sex marriage or civil union.
