Family Law

Contact Us

RKV Law’s Domestic Relations Team is composed of founding partner, Ryan Kalamaya, partner Amy Goscha, and associate attorneys, Georgina Melbye and Samantha Busenhart. The terms “Family Law,” “Divorce,” and “Matrimonial Law” are frequently used interchangeably. However, they are different. Family Law is a broad category that includes dissolution of marriage (divorce), parenting and non-parenting disputes involving children (unmarried parents or grandparents), adoption, pre-marital or cohabitation agreements, modification or enforcement of judgments, restraining orders, and the like. We provide creative and skilled services to clients in all these areas.

Experience Matters

Ryan and Amy have extensive experience in divorces involving complex property valuations, trusts, mountain real estate, closely-held businesses and contested pre-marital agreements. They have both litigated cases involving marital estates with many millions of dollars at issue.

Ryan and Amy have helped numerous families navigate parenting plans and complicated post-decree parenting time disputes. Georgina and Samantha also have experience with a variety of child custody disputes. All attorneys in the RKV Law Domestic Relations Team have handled parental relocation cases.

Both Ryan and Amy have gained the respect of the best attorneys in Colorado for their knowledge of the law, and their ability to resolve disputed issues by wading through the underlying emotions of the core issues. They have each have represented high-net worth individuals, celebrities, successful business owners, stay-at-home parents, ambitious professionals, blue-collar workers and their spouses in front of judges throughout the Roaring Fork and Vail Valleys.

Rising Stars in Family Law

Ryan and Amy have been selected for inclusion to the Colorado Super Lawyers Rising Stars list for the last 4 years. Less than 2.5% of attorneys under the age of 40 or with less than 10 years experience are included on the Colorado Super Lawyers Rising Stars list. Ryan and Amy are the only two lawyers included on the Colorado Super Lawyers Rising Stars list in Vail or Eagle County for divorce and separation.  

Avvo.com also rates both at 10 out of 10. Amy was selected for the Top 10 Best Under 40 for Client Satisfaction from the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys. A former prosecutor for over 2 years in Eagle County, Ryan has been selected for the Top 40 Under 40 list by The National Trial Lawyers.

Georgina and Samantha round out the Domestic Relations Team at RKV Law. Both have represented clients from all walks of life.

Issues We Handle

An Entire Team Representing You

Our clients love knowing that the RKV Law Domestic Relations Team holds bi-weekly meetings to discuss recent developments in domestic-relations law, their strategy in each case, and the experts and opposing counsel involved to ensure we provide top-notch service. If the lead attorney is in court or on vacation, we always have someone with experience in family law cases that is familiar with your matter and can step in.

For larger, more complex disputes, we frequently staff a partner and associate on a case. We never bill for two attorneys working at the same time. The result is cost-savings for our clients because Georgina or Samantha take the lead on time-intensive things like discovery and drafting motions. Ryan or Amy is responsible for developing a strategic plan to best position the case for settlement and, if necessary, trial.

For less complex where costs are of paramount concern, we normally have Georgina or Samantha take the lead. Both associates consult with the rest of the RKV Law Domestic Relations Team if there are wrinkles or questions on the case. Again, this does not cost the client any additional money because of our billing policy.

 

Costs

We know that everyone is concerned with how much a divorce or family law dispute will cost. That is why we are fully transparent with our fees and costs. We are the only firm in the Central Rockies who publishes our rates, retainers and billing policies. Click here to find out more.
