You Don’t Have To Face It Alone

Guidance from a trusted Denver divorce attorney can go a long way in keeping your divorce moving. A knowledgeable legal counselor can help you navigate disputes and provide clarity as to the issues that are truly worth fighting over.

Filing for a Divorce in Colorado

Colorado is a “no-fault” state, meaning the court won’t consider either spouse’s fault or misconduct when granting the divorce, dividing property, or awarding spousal support or child custody. The only ground for divorce is the “irretrievable breakdown” of the marriage, which means the couple can no longer get along with one another and there is no hope of reconciliation.

There is a residency requirement in Colorado. Either spouse must reside in the state for at least 90 days prior to filing for divorce, and children must live in Colorado 180 days prior to filing.

The most common types of divorce are the following:

Contested Divorce

When the couple is unable to agree on one or more terms (property division, child support, child custody, maintenance, etc.) of the divorce, it is considered a contested divorce. Since these cases can lead to court litigation, they are more costly and take longer to resolve.

Uncontested Divorce

When the couple agrees on all divorce issues, making the process less expensive and faster to resolve.
