Prerequisites for Divorce in Colorado
In some states, divorces proceed as a matter of “fault” by one of the parties, meaning that the parties may try to prove that something like adultery or abuse took place to get a divorce. Colorado, however, is a no-fault divorce state in which neither party will be assigned fault for the divorce. The relevant question is simply whether the marriage is “irretrievably broken.” This means you and your spouse no longer get along and there is no possibility you will get back together and work it out. Getting started is just the first step and there are many serious things to consider when contemplating divorce or custody cases.
In order to file for divorce in Colorado, either you or your spouse must have resided in the state for a minimum of 91 before filing for divorce. You may file for divorce in Broomfield County if you both live in Broomfield County, your spouse lives in the county, or if you can serve your spouse there. Regardless of which county your case is in, our Denver divorce lawyers are there for you.
Key Disputes in Any Colorado Divorce Case
There are many important questions to answer when you and your spouse decide to get a divorce. Who will be the primary caregiver for the children? Will you share custody equally? How much money in alimony will be paid? Who will live in the marital home and who will find a new place to live? Divorces may be uncontested or contested. The family lawyers at Plog & Stein, P.C. are able to help in either instance, including brokering settlement of all the relevant issues.
