Legal Separation Colorado Springs

Divorce & Family Law Attorneys in Colorado

Legal separations come with no expectation for the couple to reconcile. If you wanted, you could be separated indefinitely. However, you cannot get remarried so long as the decree of legal separation. Additionally, in Colorado, once you enter into a legal separation, you can file for dissolution after 6 months.

When entering into a legal separation, it is advisable to have an experienced family law attorney provide guidance during the process. The team at the Gasper Law Group provides families throughout Colorado Springs, El Paso County, and the surrounding area with knowledgeable representation they can trust. We understand the nuances of the law and can give you peace of mind as you work through the steps of filing a legal separation or other legal documents relative to family law.

Attorney’s Role in a Legal Separation

The role an attorney plays during the legal separation process is exactly the same as the process an attorney follows during divorce proceedings. Both parties must have their own counsel; an attorney cannot fairly represent both spouses in a separation agreement. Both types of processes also end with similar orders, and both people have to agree the process will end in separation rather than divorce. If at any point in the process one of the parties in a legal separation decides to pursue a divorce, then the process moves towards divorce proceedings.

Sometimes people have reasons they want to start with legal separation but convert later to a divorce. They may choose to do this based on how the other person might react, changing feelings over time, or other circumstances. A family law attorney is there every step of the way during the legal separation process and is prepared to counsel people through to serve their best interest in a way that makes sense for their case.

    "The professionalism, guidance, and candor I’ve received from each person in this law firm has been beyond reproach."

    I’m not one to have an extensive experience with law firms or lawyers and court in general. However, the professionalism, guidance, and candor I’ve received from each person in this law firm have been beyond reproach. Anytime, I mean, anytime, I’ve had a question about my case and the way forward, I was met with a friendly and constructive conversation about my case. There was never a doubt in my mind, that I made the right choice when I selected this law firm to represent me. Caryn and Stacie have been a wonderful blessing to my life and my legal proceedings. If you are looking for a no-BS law firm that has a significant reputation in the Springs area, I absolutely recommend this one. Even though I hope to not have to deal with this again, fingers crossed and every lucky charm, I’d trust this law firm with my representation to handle the hard stuff and give me ease with court proceedings. Thank you all for what you do and have done for me, my family, and my career. Bless you all.

    "From the start, they treated me incredibly well and were very open about everything from my situation."
    The Gasper Law Group was fantastic. From the start, they treated me incredibly well and were very open about everything from my situation. They were incredibly attentive to me and my case and made sure I fully understood everything while supporting me in every way they could. Caryn was AMAZING in handling my case. Her knowledge, confidence, and attentiveness were second to none. I would recommend them to anyone for any situation.

    "A courteous, respectful, and efficient group in all phases and aspects of due diligence"
    Highly professional team of attorneys and paralegal staff who work hard to reach the best outcomes for their clients. A courteous, respectful, and efficient group in all phases and aspects of due diligence, and discovery with effective preparation of cases entrusted to them. The partner representing me, Ms. Caryn Adams was truly impressive in her knowledge of the law, her empathy, and her care for getting the best possible resolution in my favor in pre-trial negotiation. And I have no doubt she and her team would be just as dedicated and efficient in more complex defense situations. I recommend them highly and without reservation in all areas of the law in which they are eminently qualified.

    "My charges were dropped and we walked away with all parental rights/custody and a restraining order against the other party."
    Caryn Adams and her team are hands down the BEST. I don't think I would have made it through what I went through without her by my side. My charges were dropped and we walked away with all parental rights/custody and a restraining order against the other party.

Legal Separation in Colorado

There are a number of reasons a couple might pursue a legal separation rather than a divorce. Reasons a legal separation is often considered include:

  • Couple does not feel the marriage is working out and wants to allocate financial obligations, assets, parenting time, or alimony and leave open the possibility of reconciliation.
  • Religious beliefs prevent the couple from divorcing.
  • The couple may have a vested interest in keeping benefits like health insurance the same but cannot foresee the relationship continuing in the way it has in the past.

Legal Separation vs. Divorce

Although many people assume that a legal separation is a step toward  this is often not the case, as it is its own legal proceeding with a process that looks much like the one followed for divorce. For example, legal separations start with a decree of legal separation that shows you are no longer married but you are also not divorced. Think of legal separation not as a path through divorce, but a different destination entirely.

Other changes that take place in a legal separation include:

  • You no longer have/acquire shared property; the property amassed after a separation is yours alone.
  • The length of marriage stops (for alimony) but some federal benefits/insurance continue if you are separated. (These benefits would have stopped if there was a divorce.) This may be beneficial if you or your children would like to be covered by Tricare.
