Winter Equals Divorce Months in Colorado and Nationwide

Denver, Colo. — Colorado has the most divorces in the wintertime more than any other time of the year. Dubbed the “Divorce Months”, winter is the time to break through the forced civility of the holiday euphoria to focus on what is healthy not only in a relationship but what is best for children in a family, too.

For a divorce and child custody agreement to be a mutually beneficial process, it is best to consult a family law attorney early on to expedite the process with a soon-to-be ex and navigate the court system in the most proactive way.

“We strive to help individuals win an early settlement, but when that cannot happen, we will effectively represent family law cases in court,” said attorney Bill Thode of the Denver-based Thode Law Firm.

In a divorce, child custody, assets and property disputes can become extremely stressful topics, and if one spouse owns a business it can even become more complex. If one parent has more assets or earns more on the job, more research will need to be done to determine what is fair and equitable for all parties.

A good attorney will help each parent quantify how the children have been provided for financially, emotionally and physically by each spouse, and when possible create a marital settlement plan that defines custody and visitation rights.

The Thode Law Firm is one of Denver’s premier family law firms and has represented hundreds of clients since 1997 regarding divorce, child custody disputes, conflicts over parenting time and decision making authority, maintenance/alimony disputes, child support actions, child removal cases and a variety of other cases.

“Every case and individual is unique, but every spouse deserves to be confident that our legal expertise will leave you confident to begin the next chapter of your life in a positive way,” said Thode, who is also an active member of the Colorado Bar Association, the Denver Bar Association, the CBA Family Law Section, and Colorado Lawyers for the Arts. “After we evaluate your situation and answer all your questions, we’ll create a strategy that we want your input and approval on. Use January as a stepping stone to a better you.”
