Using experts during the divorce process in Colorado

People in Colorado that are getting divorced typically have many questions. People usually turn to friends or relatives, but they may have questions or issues that family and friends are just not able to deal with or answer. Finding an expert in a particular field, such as a financial advisor or an appraiser, may help answer questions and assist in preparing for divorce negotiations and court proceedings, if necessary.

These professionals may either be court-ordered, in some instances, or retained by either spouse. Their opinion may be admissible in court, depending on their qualifications. Their analysis of a given situation may mean the difference between achieving a result that is beneficial to both parties in the divorce and having to make certain concessions that may cost more money in the long run.

The potential expense in securing an expert's opinion and/or testimony is an important factor to consider. It can differ based on the type of expert that is needed and how long the assessment might take. For instance, if an income expert is needed, it might only take a couple of days to determine how much each spouse earns. This may prove helpful to the court to show a spouse's ability to pay spousal support and/or child support as applicable.

Other issues may be more complex and take longer to evaluate. This may even include a psychiatrist or psychologist to assess either or both spouses and/or any children involved in a child custody dispute. In many instances, the use of an expert in a Colorado divorce can eventually pay for itself and hopefully assist in achieving a comprehensive and fair result that will set the parties on the right path in starting to build a new life after the divorce.
