What Is Family Law?


This legal practice area deals with issues that involve relationships within the family. This includes marriage, divorce, child custody, adoption, and many others. Family law attorneys can draft legal documents and represent their clients in negotiations or in family court proceedings.

In terms of marriage, Colorado is an “equitable distribution” state. This means that during a divorce, marital property is divided in a court-deemed equitable manner.


Colorado is also a “no-fault’ divorce state”. Individuals wanting to file for a divorce do not need to prove any grounds for their decision apart from alleging that their relationships have become “irretrievably broken”. There is no need to prove infidelity, desertion, abuse, or other reasons.


In order to make sure that all these state-specific details are considered, working with a Denver family lawyer is the best course of action.

I'm so thankful for Jennifer and Christina. They helped get my child custody case settled BEFORE going through a long lengthy court battle. I had a bad experience with another law firm so I was hesitant but they completely diminished any doubt I had. Communication was the most important thing for me and they exceeded that expectation without taking advantage. I highly recommend them

We utilized Jennifer Lewis & team to work with us on drafting up and executing a cohabitation agreement between myself and my long term boyfriend. We had initially met with her at the end of February. Because of the virus, our communication shifted to email conversations to finalize the agreement over the course of a few months. Ms. Lewis and her team were beyond professional, extremely responsive, and easy to work with regarding updates, changes, and questions. She even helped us to find and coordinated a remote notarization over Zoom with a certified notary to execute the agreement. I would absolutely use her again for any needs we had in the future.

At the onset of my divorce, I was scared, fragile, and anxious about what I was about to go through. Jennifer and her team helped to understand my needs and concerns and provided the tools that I needed to help me to feel prepared, supported, and understood. Jennifer and her team were warm, professional, and present throughout the entire process. While I don't wish divorce on anyone, if you must go through it, I couldn't imagine a better team than Lewis & Matthews, PC to be by your side.
