Residency Requirement in Colorado Divorce

Different laws govern the divorce process and it varies in different states. Here in Colorado, there are several things you need to know.

Under the Colorado Divorce Laws and its guidelines, divorce is better known as "dissolution of marriage." Ending the legal bonds of marriage requires that at least one of the spouses has been a resident of Colorado for at least 90 days before the date of filing. Alongside this residency requirement, you may only file in the county where the respondent holds residence. If the respondent has a non-resident status, the case may be filed in the county where the petitioner holds residence.
