Economic Misconduct in Divorce

Upon invitation from Professor Jennifer Hendricks, family law attorney Kama McConaughy Sarkissian had the honor and privilege of lecturing at the University of Colorado’s School of Law.  Ms. McConaughy Sarkissian taught a family law class concerning the issue of economic misconduct in divorce. She was counsel for the leading appellate case in Colorado concerning marital waste: In re Marriage of Jorgensen, 143 P.3d 1169 (Colo. App. 2006) and is one of the preeminent authorities on the doctrine. Ms. McConaughy Sarkissian greatly enjoyed giving back to her alma mater and look forward to continuing our firm’s dedication to service and philanthropy.

McConaughy & Sarkissian, P.C. – Working from home

We at McConaughy & Sarkissian, P.C. remain open during these difficult times.  While most of us are working from home, we do have in-office staffing for answering the telephones, receiving and distributing mail and filings.   Our entire staff is available to answer questions or accept new matters involving construction, general liability, auto and family law.   

In general, for family law/divorce/child custody matters the courts have continued all non-emergency hearings but are available for temporary protection orders, permanent protection order hearings, emergency requests to restrict parenting time or prevent parental abduction of your child, request the appointment of an emergency guardian and/or special conservator, and temporary custody hearings in a dependency and neglect case. 

We are still able to commence new actions for dissolution of marriage, legal separation, allocation of parental responsibilities, as well as modifications of existing orders.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have questions or require our assistance in any family law matter.
