Sole Decision Making Responsibility for Mother

Family LawAttorney: Daniel Chandler

June 11, 2021 – In child custody cases, the ideal solution typically involves both parents equally participating in their child’s lives. Unfortunately, sometimes one parent might act in ways contrary to their child’s best interests. In those cases, courts will often limit parenting time for that parent.

In this case, the father of our client’s child had a significant history of both criminal activity and drug use. Our family law attorneys filed a motion for allocation of parental responsibilities. As a result, a judge awarded our client sole decision-making power for the child. The father will have weekly supervised visits with the child, based on his history of drugs, alcohol, domestic violence and child abuse.

Additionally, our Family Law Team was able to get an income assignment for child support from the opposing party despite his efforts to avoid providing the required information.

June 9, 2021 – It’s no secret that divorce cases can get contentious. Unfortunately, one may even try to retaliate against the others during the proceedings. Thankfully, the family law team at Robinson & Henry has experience with even the most difficult cases.

In this case, we successfully negotiated the dismissal of a protection order brought against our client by his former spouse. We also ensured that our client had his day in court to defend against his ex-wife’s desire to alienate him from his children and deprive him of his hard-earned property.

Dissolution of Marriage

June 9, 2021 – Our client and his spouse were divorcing after less than three years of marriage. He initially thought it would be an easy uncontested joint filing. However, his wife indicated that she planned to attack our client’s interests in a family trust fund he had inherited. That’s when our client sought the assistance of Robinson & Henry’s family law team.

Our attorneys were able to settle the case where the client kept the marital residence and 100 percent of his interest in the family trust. We did this by demonstrating that the wife was unlikely to succeed at trial due to the relatively short duration of the marriage. Our client also avoided having to pay spousal maintenance.

June 6, 2021 – Divorce doesn’t always have to spell disaster. The family law team at Robinson & Henry is here to help you navigate every step of the Colorado divorce process.

In this case, our family law attorneys provided legal advice concerning court requirements, assisted in the preparation of a separation agreement and parenting plan, and reviewed documents prepared by our client to be filed by the court.

Successful Contempt Citation in Divorce Case

Family LawAttorney: Daniel Chandler

May 25, 2021- A domestic relations separation agreement sets the terms of a divorce, including a parenting plan that dictates how the parents will make decisions regarding their minor children. Both parents must adhere to the parenting plan or face legal penalties, such as a contempt of court citation.

In this case, the mother of his client’s children took away the cell phones that had been provided for the children to talk to him and was interfering with the progress of the parenting plan. Our family law attorneys successfully prosecuted a contempt citation against our client’s ex-spouse to enforce his rights to parent his children.

Protection Order Continuation

Family LawAttorney: Daniel Chandler

May 3, 2021 – Many divorce cases involve more than dividing up the assets and creating parenting time schedules. Unfortunately, some divorce cases involve domestic violence.

In this matter, we helped a client extend a temporary protection order. Our Family Law Team negotiated the continuation of order for the maximum time the law allows. As a result, our client can move forward with their case free from harassment and violence.

Temporary Custody Orders

April 28, 2021 – Not all shared parenting agreements are between divorced parents. The parents of some children have never been married to each other. Still, unless the parents agree to legally forego all their rights or abuse is an issue, they should be allowed to see their children.

In this case, our Family Law Team was able to successfully prosecute our client’s Petition for Allocation of Parental Responsibilities. At issue, one parent refused to allow the other to see the child for more than seven months.

Our attorneys successfully litigated our client’s case, which resulted in the court granting our client significant parenting time while a permanent agreement can be hammered out.

Child Care Cost Dispute

Family LawAttorney: Daniel Chandler

April 19, 2021 – An individual sought our Family Law Team’s help on a matter involving a child tax credit and unpaid child care costs.

We successfully defended our client against allegations that he was ineligible to claim a child tax credit. The father, who was out of work, was behind on his portion for child care. We were able to negotiate a fair settlement for payment of extraordinary child care expenses that allow him to make payments over time after gaining new employment.

Past results afford no guarantee of future results; each matter is different and must be judged on its own merits.
