Denver, Colorado Property Division Attorneys

Helping Individuals Protect their Assets in a Divorce

There are many issues that need to be resolved before a divorce can be final, including the way that the couple’s property is divided between them. Colorado is an equitable distribution state, which means that marital property is divided in a way that is fair – which may or may not result in an equal division of the marital estate. Generally speaking, marital property is any property that either party obtained during the marriage, with the notable exceptions of gifts or inheritances.

Under Colorado law, judges have a significant amount of discretion when it comes to making decisions about the division of property in a divorce, so it is important to do everything possible to protect your rights. An attorney can ensure that your case is presented as strongly as possible and may even be able to help you to come to an agreement with your spouse about how to divide your assets.

How Do Colorado Courts Determine How Marital Property Will Be Divided?

As mentioned above, courts in Colorado are required to divide property equitably. This means that as a no-fault divorce state, fault or marital misconduct do not play a role in the division or property. While the most common division of assets is an equal division, the courts are permitted to take other factors into consideration when determining what is an equitable division. Under Colorado Revised Statutes 14-10-113, when making a decision about the division of property, a judge will consider the following factors:

  • The amount that the individuals involved contributed to obtaining the assets that make up the marital estate, including contributions made by a homemaker
  • The value of the property allocated to each party
  • The financial circumstances of each party at the time that the property division is occurring, including awarding the family home to the spouse that the children will live with the majority of the time
  • Any appreciation or depreciation to marital property during the marriage or the depletion of separate property for marital purposes

How a Lawyer Can Help You Protect Your Share of the Marital Property

The way a judge perceives each party’s economic condition can have a significant impact on the way that the marital property is ultimately divided. For this reason, if you are involved in a divorce in which property division is contested, it is in your best interest to retain an attorney familiar with Colorado law as soon as possible. An attorney will thoroughly evaluate the circumstances of your situation and present your case to the judge in way to which he or she will be receptive.

As many divorcing couples are unable to communicate with each other in a constructive way, getting an attorney involved significantly increases the chances that you will be able to come to an agreement with your spouse about the way that the property will be divided.

    "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.

    "Don’t have much hope? Leave it to Caryn she will change that."
    I dug myself a deep hole and didn’t have much hope or luck with the attorney I used before. I called Gasper law group and Caryn Adams was my attorney that took charge of everything. I couldn’t have asked for anything better the outcome she made possible is everything I wanted. She is great at her job and takes cases seriously … don’t have much hope leave it to Caryn she will change that. Thanks Gasper law group you’re the best!

    "I was absolutely floored with the knowledge and expertise that not only Caryn carries, but the firm as a whole."
    I, unfortunately, was involved with two separate situations within a few years of each other, which left me in quite a bind both times. I was lucky enough to have Caryn assist me in both cases and was absolutely floored with the knowledge and expertise that not only she carries, but the firm as a whole. One of the best, if not the best lawyers I've ever come across. Extremely nice and very honest. I was able to resolve my situations with minimal impact and continue my life without fear of being held back.

    "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.

    "I highly recommend that you not waste your time hiring other attorneys and hire the Gasper Law Group."
    After an absolutely crazy incident that could not have been seen almost anywhere besides a movie. I received some serious charges and was in search of an attorney. They would not only represent me but need to do the right thing because it's the right thing...
    - Lance F.
    "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.
