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.
