Colorado Family Law Attorney
Full-service family law firm in Denver
Whether you are experiencing the pain of marital conflict, or facing another legal issue close to home, family lawyer Karl J. Geil listens to your needs, understands your concerns and helps you reach solutions to your legal problems.
With over 40 years of legal experience, I provide legal services across a wide spectrum of areas, including:
- Parental Responsibilities and Parenting Time (Custody and Visitation)
- Child support
- Child support modification and enforcement
- Dependency and Neglect proceedings
- Pre- and post-nuptial agreements
Divorce is difficult, but it should not lead to a financial crisis. If you meet the statutory test to qualify for it, I help you establish fair and equitable spousal support.
Parental Responsibilities and Parenting Time
For every parent, whether married or not married, making appropriate arrangements for the children is the most heart-wrenching aspect of a relationship falling apart. Colorado law does not refer to “custody” or “visitation.” Instead, we consider the allocation of parental responsibilities and parenting time. I advocate for your parental rights so you can raise your children in an appropriate and healthy home. I can also help you with modifying old orders which no longer serve the best interests of the children.
Both parents share the responsibility of raising a child. I help ensure your child receives the financial support required for a healthy, happy upbringing.
Child support modification and enforcement
Child support payments remain the same unless the court modifies the child support order. If either parent experiences a significant change in financial circumstances, I can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments accordingly.
Throughout your divorce, I will stand by you. I accompany you through mediation or litigation, depending on which is likely to obtain the best possible results for you — including fair distribution of assets, division of the marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.
Dependency and neglect proceedings
When Colorado authorities interfere with your parental rights, you need a compassionate advocate who understands the bureaucratic red tape. I am skilled at maneuvering through the complex laws of Colorado to protect your parental rights.
Mediation puts the decisions in your hands, and can often provide more expedient, predictable results than a trial. I can help you obtain the most favorable divorce settlement using mediation.
Pre- and post-nuptial agreements
When you marry your beloved, you may not foresee the potential problems that can eventually lead to divorce. I expect the unexpected and draft premarital agreements that protect both spouses’ interests and that can alleviate some of the stress should you ever divorce.
