I’m Jennifer Lewis and I understand firsthand how stressful a divorce can be, in turn, I work on behalf of families to resolve family law disputes here in Eagle County, Colorado. As an experienced Eagle County divorce attorney and child custody lawyer, I represent my clients in many areas of family law, including but not limited to: divorce, actions for contempt of court, child custody, child support, as well as prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements.
WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT IN A DIVORCE?
A divorce can be emotionally exhausting, painful and expensive, so knowing what to expect during the divorce and mediation process can be incredibly helpful. As an experienced Eagle County Divorce Attorney, I offer an additional consultation to go over every aspect of what will happen, so you can be fully prepared as you begin the next chapter in your life.
In the state of Colorado, one thing you can expect is that the divorce process will last at least 3 months, as there is a 91-day waiting period between the time the paperwork is filed and when the divorce becomes official. There are several steps to the divorce process, including:
- Initial filing and service
- Overall case management
- Issuing of temporary orders
- Common discovery procedures
- Settlement efforts such as mediation sessions
