Stepparent Kinship Adoption

In order for you to gain custody of your stepchild, we’ll have to prove that the biological mother or father has had no relationship with the child for at least a year or that they haven’t been paying child support for at least a year. Stepparent Adoption Attorney Thomas can gather the proper legal documents to get the best possible result in your case.

Our stepparent Adoption Attorney will work through the courts to help you become the legal guardian of the child while terminating the rights of the biological parent. You’ll need to provide a background check and other paperwork to show that you’re able to provide a healthy environment and mentorship for the child.

We can gather the proper legal documents to get the best possible result in your case.


Prenuptial Agreements

Prenuptial Agreements are often used by one or both parties when they have significant assets or expect to receive significant assets. Prenuptial Agreements allow for the protection of assets by planning for the division of such assets in the event of divorce. By contracting the division of assets that would be addressed by a divorce court, the parties remove the uncertainty about the resolution of financial issues in a divorce by a judge. These agreements are designed to save the marital estate from being dwindled by the expenses of divorce litigation and manage divorce issues in an expeditious and cost-effective manner. Drafting of these agreements requires skill in creating an agreement which can survive challenges based upon claims of unconscionably. Postnuptial Agreements can also be drafted for the same purposes as Prenuptial Agreements, but they are prepared after parties are married. Please Contact our Denver Law Firm to discuss the preparation of Prenuptial or Postnuptial Agreements with an attorney who has experience preparing many of these agreements.


Medical Malpractice

There are many trucks on the turnpike and a good number of accidents as a result. If you have been hit by a truck or you have lost someone due to a truck accident, we can help you negotiate a deal with the insurance company. We can also represent you in a wrongful death lawsuit. When trying to recover damages as a result of a truck accident, you will almost always be dealing with an insurance company. The goal of the insurance adjuster is to settle cases and save the insurance company as much money as possible. Without an accident attorney, the settlement process proceeds completely on the adjuster’s terms. This scenario will never yield the best possible result for you. Your attorney’s job is to level the playing field. Their main goal is to settle your claim to maximize your compensation. If you have been involved in an truck accident in Washington, DC you should contact an accident lawyer quickly to ensure that you receive all of the compensation to which you are entitled.
