Handling The Division Of Your Property And Assets At The End Of A Relationship
Having any sort of relationship end can be very stressful emotionally, physically, and financially. If you and your partner have no domestic partnership agreements in place for what would happen in the event of a breakup, neither of you has any protection or guarantee of what will happen next or of being treated fairly by your ex.
At The Offices of Keane Law, LLC, we draft dissolution agreements for same-sex couples and nonmarried couples to establish who gets what and what will happen to children of the relationship. Much like a Separation Agreement or Parenting Plan (the documents that formalize financial and child-related agreements in a divorce), this contract lays out the following things:
- Division of property and assets — Any properties and assets purchased during the relationship or that increased in value during the relationship can be fairly divided between partners.
- Division of debt — Any debt incurred during the relationship and/or because of the relationship can be fairly divided between partners.
- Child support and child custody agreements — If you and your partner have a child together, Colorado law requires that the child be provided for by both parents, even if the child is the biological child of one partner and was adopted by the other. It is also important to figure out how you and your ex will make child-related decisions together, and to decide how you will share parenting time with the child.
We help you draw up agreements regarding children and how you will divide your property, assets and debts between you and your partner. Making a dissolution agreement formalizes the end of the relationship and shows a record of the divisions regarding who got what and how your children will be cared for.
