Importance Of Seeking A Lawyer For Dissolution Of Civil Unions

While the state of Colorado does not yet recognize same-sex marriage, it does offer same-sex couples the option of creating a civil union. If the relationship does not work out, the parties can request a dissolution in the same way that a married couple can request a divorce.

With offices in Parker and Broomfield, The Bruntz Law Firm, LLC, serves clients throughout Colorado. Our family law lawyer, Damon Bruntz, can guide you through every facet of dissolving a civil union. While most cases do not involve child custody or parenting time issues, nearly all involve property division concerns. Joint assets and debts of all kinds must be fairly divided. Some dissolutions also involve the payment of support to the lesser-earning party.

Why Retain A Family Law Attorney?

Answering individual questions may seem simple, but overall, the dissolution process can involve real challenges. Severing your relationship with someone can be emotionally draining, making it difficult to disassociate yourself from the situation enough to make the best decisions.

In addition, the legal process as a whole can be far more complex than it first appears. Although many rules and laws are straightforward, some are intuitively odd. The court also requires a variety of documents at various times, and it's not always self-evident when, where and how to file them. For all these reasons and more, having the assistance of a professional can help you avoid ending up in an unexpected legal pitfall.
