03 Feb Family Law Attorneys Colorado Springs
Do I need a family law attorney or a divorce attorney?
Yes, family law attorneys are “divorce lawyers.” But there are many other issues that a family law attorney, sometimes referred to as domestic relations lawyer, can help you with, in addition to divorce. Are you looking to adopt a child? Would you like to speak to someone about a divorce? Are you already dealing with child support or spousal maintenance? Is there a disagreement about parenting time? Have you or someone in your home suffered abuse? A qualified family attorney can address these issues (and more).
What is family law or domestic relations?
Family law (or domestic relations) usually deals with civil unions and domestic partnerships, marriages, prenuptial agreements, divorces, legal separations, property settlements, alimony, child abuse, spousal abuse, custody, adoption. The attorneys at Travis Law Group are educated and experienced on the many facets of family law and can successfully assist you with your domestic relations issue.

Satisfied Client Stories
I was referred to Rich Travis almost 15 years ago from a friend experiencing divorce complications. Best decision to change law firms because I inherited an exceptional law family! Rich, Dauna, Mitch, Megan along with their support staff has gone above and beyond. They have impressed me with their personal attention to each case with impeccable responsive to questions and concerns. You actually feel like a member of the team working your case! Advice, court preparation and court presentation is extraordinary. A legal team that approaches law and clientele with honesty and integrity is a rare gem. Rich has my full trust and faith!!
Rich Travis is an incredible attorney. He and his staff are incredibly responsive, knowledgeable and thorough. I would recommend him without hesitation. Thank you Rich.
World class lawyer and team.
Mr. Rich Travis is one of the best attorney's that I have dealt with in my 27 year professional career. He is extremely competent in every situation I have had the privilege in working with him on. He is conscientious of my time and he works in the best interest of his client's. In addition, his staff, particularly Ms. Megan Hersh, was also a pleasure. She is attentive, thorough and prompt in her work on my particular case. I highly recommend that anyone that needs one of the best attorney's for a situation, that you would contact the Travis Law Group. You will not be disappointed.
If you need good help this is the place to go! Very caring and understanding people that work here!! If you need help see them!
Mr Travis, Dauna & his team were exceptional! From the very beginning of my case they made me feel at ease, listened thoroughly and explained in detail to what possible avenues I had as options. I can honestly say I believe that the outcome of my legal peace of mind was directly related to that fact that I hired the right lawyer. In the court room, it was amazing to see how truly prepared he was. He knew my case inside and out.
I chose Rich Travis' Law Firm to represent me in a parenting-time case. Rich and his colleague Mitch were incredibly thorough, precise, and gave my case the specific attention that it required. Additionally, their paralegal Marissa Sterrett is incredibly sharp, organized, efficient, and has a keen eye for detail. Rich's staff gained my trust early in the process and took the very best care of my case to ensure a victory in the courtroom. My only mistake was not hiring Rich Travis' office at the very beginning of my divorce process, I would have had much better results early on in my case.
Richard Travis, his firm and the rest of his team are all consummate professionals, from the attorneys and paralegals to their receptionist. I hired Richard Travis at the nascent stages of my highly contested custody battle. My case lasted a grueling 8 years. But during my family’s dire need of a go-to legal team, and when I (we) needed this requirement the most, I was very assured and at ease to have Rich and the rest of his A-team at my side. I was able to sleep soundly at night knowing that Rich was there at my side in the courtroom.
Rich has taken care of two problems for us. An attempt to change visitation rights by our great-grandson's grandparent and now assisting with a granddaughter's divorce situation. In both cases, he kept us in the loop.
Mr. Travis is excellent with law facts, communication, completing legal matters in an expedient manner. He listens, is very intelligent, and is in tune with your needs. I have recommended him to many persons and will continue to do business with him in the future.
1. Can I handle my divorce without an attorney?
Yes, however, we believe it is unwise to represent yourself. Most people are not as informed about the law, their options, or how the judicial system, as a trained lawyer is. Family law attorneys deal with these issues on a daily basis, and they are familiar with the likely outcomes of what you are dealing with. If you are facing one of the many domestic relations issues, you should contact a family law attorney so that you can be more informed of your options.
2. How do I get child support from someone who is not paying?
Child support is ordered by the Court. As such, a failure to pay is a violation of a Court Order and subjects the person failing to pay to the contempt powers of the Court. That can include retroactive payments, fines, and even jail time. If someone owes you child support and is not current on their payments, on behalf of your child(ren), you should speak to a lawyer immediately.
