If a divorce occurs with both parties agreeing on all points such as property division, child custody, and child support, 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.

Colorado Family Law Information

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.

Sometimes couples choose a legal separation if they are unsure if they want to end a marriage or they cannot for religious or other reasons.

Often referred to as a “prenup,” a prenuptial agreement outlines asset division if the marriage does not last and ends in divorce or annulment.

If parents are separated, divorced, or unmarried, 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.

child support

Rather than focus on custody, Colorado law stresses parenting time and decision-making responsibility in the relationship between parents and children in families where the parents are separated, divorced, or unmarried.

child custody

Establishing parentage is important to determine parenting time, decision-making responsibility, and child support regardless if the parents are separated, divorced, or were never married.

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.
