    If you were injured through someone else's negligence, you have a right to recover those damages and be made whole. This would include your medical expenses, pain and suffering and other areas that an attorney can help you with. On a simple case without long-term injury and medical treatment it is possible to settle the case yourself if you have the time to research what is recoverable. Otherwise, you should contact an attorney.

    First, let me say that the fact that you have been a homemaker and with the children full-time for the last three years, strengthens your position, not weakens it. Above all else, the court looks to the best interests of the child when determining Allocation of Parental Responsibility. Colorado no longer uses the term "Custody" to rid people of the notion of ownership of the children. You really need to speak to a family law attorney to discuss how you should proceed. I am in Denver and...

  4. I got an MIP about 3 weeks ago in Fort Collins, when I go in for my court date should I ask for a deferred sentence?

    Like above, speak to an attorney. Specifically, with respect to a deferred judgment, you are entering a plea of guilty and placed on probation. If you successfully complete all of the terms of the probation, you can return to court and withdraw your guilty plea and the charge dismissed with prejudice, meaning the DA can never refile the case against you.

    If you were harmed by the other driver's negligent actions, you are entitled to reimbursement. Because you did not have insurance, you were likely cited for that offense by the police, but your lack of insurance was not likely the cause of the accident. If you are injured, you should seek treatment of your injuries immediately to make sure you are okay and have no lasting damage. If you are injured, you should contact an experienced personal injury attorney.

    Yes. the DUI from VA will show up on your record. Colorado counts lifetime DUI offenses, so the court in Colorado will consider this as a second offense. You should get in touch with a DUI attorney as soon as possible to discuss your options.

    First, you and your mother should not make any statements to the police. The police are going to send a request for you to appear at the Traffic Investigation Bureau. You should appear so they do not impound your car but again, DO NOT make any statements. At the very minimum, if the police think you were involved, they will likely issue you a complaint and summons for Failure to Report an Accident and any other charges they see fit. Next, you need to speak with an attorney as soon as...

    You can start by looking at the Colorado Courts website, which I have linked here. As a preliminary matter, Colorado uses the term Allocation of Parental Responsibility. Thus, begin your search with that term. However, issues of parenting time and allocation are not easily navigated without the help of an attorney. I would encourage you to take advantage of a free consultation (which many of us offer) and see if an attorney can be of any assistance. Good Luck!

    This is a serious misdemeanor charge for child abuse. I have seen a great number of these cases and the district attorneys take these cases seriously. At this point, make sure that you make no further statements to anyone about this case, especially the police. You need to contact an attorney as soon as possible to discuss your options. When you go into court in a few weeks, you will be advised of the charges, if the DA proceeds with the charges and the possible penalties. You can then...
