Solutions That Move Your Family Forward
Family law matters are stressful because they are so personal. You worry about your children’s well-being, your finances and how you will manage the turmoil and change. Navigating these complex issues requires strategy, perspective, uncomfortable conversations and hard decisions.
The Goodbody Law Firm is your guide and guardian for all aspects of Colorado divorce and family law. Maeve Goodbody is a compassionate adviser who will help you see things clearly and negotiate practical solutions. But when push comes to shove, she is also the battle-tested trial lawyer that you may need to stand your ground and protect your interests.
Experienced Advocacy In Family Law
We combine a big-picture approach with attention to detail to help you reach the best possible outcome for family conflicts. Ms. Goodbody can address the full spectrum, including:
- Divorce and separation: We handle all issues relating to contested or uncontested divorce, including financial disclosures, temporary orders, separation agreements, property division, spousal support (if applicable) and protective orders. We use negotiation, mediation, and litigation as necessary to reach a fair outcome that allows you to move on with your life.
- Allocation of parenting responsibilities: The details of child custody and co-parenting will be a part of your life at least until your children turn 18. We will fiercely protect your parental rights and your children’s best interests while helping you work out the logistics of parenting time and the parenting agreement.
- Custody modification or relocation: We represent parents in hearings to modify the terms of custody, such as changes in parenting time, an older child going to live with the other parent, or a move out of Colorado with the children. These are emotional and high-stakes proceedings that require strong and knowledgeable advocacy.
- Child support: We make sure the court has accurate information about income and child-related expenses when determining the amount of child support. We also advocate for either parent in post-decree modifications when circumstances warrant increasing or decreasing child support by at least 10% or in the enforcement of unpaid support.
