Family Law Services
Attorney Tim Walker practices in several complex areas of family law. He is also a Professor of Law Emeritus at the University of Denver, Sturm College of Law, having taught Family Law since 1968. Whether you're beginning or ending a union, he can assist you with all of the legalities. He helps clients in the following areas:
Throughout his career, Attorney Walker has worked with couples to draft both pre and postnuptial agreements. He is happy to assist you as well. These contracts will detail what you and your spouse must do once your marriage ends by divorce or death.
Without legal guidance, you may not fully understand the implications of the concessions that you expect your future spouse to make. Plus, you may not have a balanced view of what (if anything) should be offered in return for expected concessions. Tim is available to advise you in negotiating, drafting, and interpreting a marital agreement to protect your interests.
Dissolution of Marriage
Ending your marriage can involve many legal conflicts. However, when you retain our law firm, we will do everything it takes to help you reach a positive resolution. We truly advocate for our clients. Divorce is a process of disentangling from a relationship. Many financial and emotional issues need to be resolved including property division and child custody arrangements (parental decision making, visitation, and parenting time). Colorado requires most divorcing couples to try some form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) before bringing their divorce matter to the courtroom. Professor Walker is there to advise you.
In our experience, ADR is often the best way to come to an agreement because the parties can retain their dignity, be creative in their resolution, and send a message to their children that both parents made the decision together. However, sometimes alternative dispute resolution is unsuccessful, and we will be there to represent your interests in court.
