Understanding the Types of Divorce in Colorado
Before filing for divorce, it’s important to understand how family court proceeds with a dissolution of marriage in family court. Legal proceedings for divorce are handled by the court, and therefore may vary at a state level. To make things easier for our clients, we’ve put together a dissolution of marriage roadmap so you can learn how divorce in Colorado typically progresses and what to expect during each stage.
Our divorce lawyers have a wealth of experience and knowledge to provide about the following types of divorce and considerations:
No Fault Divorce
The only proof needed for divorce under Colorado law is that the marriage is “irretrievably broken.” No fault divorce means that fault is not considered a factor in divorce.
Contested & Non-Contested Divorce
Dissolving a marriage is divided into two key considerations, which is contested vs. uncontested divorce. If a divorce occurs with both parties agreeing on all points (child custody, child support, division of assets, and spousal maintenance) then the divorce is considered an uncontested divorce. However, if any of these or other circumstances related to the marriage are in dispute, it becomes a contested divorce.
High Asset Divorce
When businesses, property, and other valuable assets are involved in a divorce, complications may arise that require help from a high asset divorce attorney.
Military divorce in Colorado has some special considerations that civilian divorce might not, such as circumstances relating to duty stations and what to do about healthcare benefits.
You may have many reasons to seek an annulment of a marriage rather than a divorce, but there are certain criteria that must align in order to qualify.
Other Considerations When Getting Divorced
Our divorce lawyers work to address all legal considerations including:
Child Custody and Child Support
Our child custody lawyers work to ensure the best for the children and all parties. When parents are getting divorced, one of the parents is expected to contribute financially to the well-being of the child(ren) through child support payments until they turn 19 years old. We can help you navigate all factors involved when getting divorced with children.
Sometimes couples choose legal separation rather than divorce if they no longer wish to legally reside together and desire to separate their debts but are continuing either therapy or an attempt to reconcile. The procedures followed for legal separation are the same as for divorce, the only difference is that after the decree is entered declaring the parties legally separated, the parties cannot be officially divorced until after six months following the decree of legal separation.
Colorado is an equitable distribution state, meaning the property is divided in a way that is fair rather than “equal.” A number of factors come into play to make that determination and our divorce lawyers can help protect your interests.
Alimony, referred to as spousal maintenance under Colorado law, allows one ex-spouse to provide financial support to the other either until they are either able to support themselves through employment or they remarry. Many factors can be at play when determining if alimony will be awarded, and no two cases are completely the same.
Many types of restraining orders may be filed in relation to divorce proceedings. It is important to know the difference and speak to our knowledgeable attorneys if you have questions.
