An Overview of the Divorce Laws in Colorado

You can only file for a divorce in Colorado if you meet the state’s residency requirements: At least one spouse must have lived in the state for a minimum of 91 days before initiating divorce proceedings. Colorado operates under a no-fault divorce standard—neither spouse needs to prove that their partner did anything ‘wrong’ to cause the separation. You can get divorced on the grounds that your marriage is irretrievably broken.

How long it takes to get divorced will depend on a number of different factors, the most important being whether the divorce is contested or uncontested. A contested divorce is a case in which a court will need to resolve one or more issues. Contested divorces take longer. In contrast, an uncontested divorce is one that has been fully settled outside of the court. You do not have to choose one lane or the other at the beginning of the process. In many cases, couples are able to resolve their disputes through informal negotiation or divorce mediation.

We Handle the Full Range of Divorce Issues in Aurora

Divorce is complicated. There is a wide range of issues that must be resolved before a separation can be finalized. At Jones Law Firm, PC, our Aurora, CO well-versed in the full range family law matters. We understand how difficult it is to end a marriage and we will go the extra mile to ensure that your separation is as smooth as possible. Our Aurora divorce attorneys have extensive experience with:

  • Property Division: Colorado is an equitable distribution state. Under Colorado law, marital property and marital debts will be divided in a fair manner. In contrast, separate property is not subject to dissolution. Our Aurora property division lawyers are ready to ensure that you receive your rightful share of the marital assets.
  • Spousal Support (Alimony): Following a divorce, one spouse may owe support (alimony) to their former partner. In Colorado, courts recognize several types of alimony, including temporary, rehabilitative, reimbursement, and permanent. Our Aurora alimony attorneys will protect your financial interests.
  • Child Custody: For parents, going through a divorce can be especially challenging. In Colorado, custody, and visitation are often referred to as parental responsibilities. Our Aurora child custody lawyers will protect your parental rights and help you find the best solution for your family.
  • Child Support: Parents have a duty to provide financial support to their children. The non-custodial parent—the parent without primary physical possession—may be required to make ongoing payments in accordance with Colorado’s child support guidelines. If you have questions about support, our Aurora child support attorneys can help.
