An Experienced Colorado Family Law Attorney Navigates You Toward a Positive Outcome

Full-service family law firm in the Denver area
Whether you are anticipating the joys of adoption or you are experiencing the frustrations of divorce, you need a competent, assertive Colorado attorney by your side when facing important family issues. My name is Martin R. Nelson — and for 30 years, I have zealously advocated for the my clients’ rights and have provided protection for their families during all family law proceedings, including:

  • Adoption
  • Alimony
  • Child custody and visitation
  • Child support
  • Child support modification and enforcement
  • Divorce
  • Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings
  • Mediation
  • Pre- and post-nuptial agreements

Adopting a child brings happiness to families — but a biological parent’s change of heart or an immigration fiasco can turn the joyous occasion into a nightmare. I help with the complex legal process of adoptions so that you can feel secure about your child’s well-being.

Divorce should not lead to financial crisis. I help you obtain the spousal support you deserve so that you can continue to live as you did during the marriage.

Child custody and visitation
I advocate for your parental rights so that you can raise your children in a fit and healthy home.

Child support
Parents share the responsibility of raising their child. I advocate for a fair division of financial support between the parents so that the child can have a healthy, happy upbringing.

Child support modification and enforcement
Child support payments do not change unless the court modifies the child support order. If either you or the other parent experiences a significant change in circumstances, I guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments accordingly.

Through mediation or litigation, I fight for your rights to get the best possible settlement or judgment — including your fair share of assets, division of the marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.

Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings
When Colorado authorities interfere with your parental rights, you need a zealous advocate who understands how to cut through the bureaucratic red tape. I am skilled at maneuvering through the complex laws of Colorado to protect your parental rights.

Mediation puts the decisions in your hands, and it can often provide more expedient, more predictable results than a trial can. I help you obtain the best possible divorce settlement.

Pre- and post-nuptial agreements
Love can blind you to the potential for financial loss if the marriage fails. I expect the unexpected. I draft agreements that protect both spouses’ financial interests.
