There are over 206,000 households in Jefferson County and over 55% are married couples. These families live in both suburban and rural communities spanning from the city of Westminster in the north down to Pike National Forest in the south. Divorce in Jefferson County is handled at the District Court level and the county falls within the First Judicial District of Colorado. Its courthouse is located in Golden, Colorado.
Once you have taken the first step in filing a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage, the process will take a minimum of 91 days, and in most cases finalizing a divorce takes longer. Even if your divorce is uncontested and you and your spouse agree on everything, there may be issues that arise as your case progresses like dividing up your marital assets or business that will add to your timeline. In a contested divorce, you and your spouse cannot come to a tidy agreement on everything and you need the court to weigh in on issues like child custody or child support. Some cases may begin as contested but ultimately end without direct court intervention as issues are worked out and mutual, written settlement agreements are arrived at. Having a knowledgeable and experienced Jefferson County divorce attorney by your side to keep discussions on track will be vital during these negotiations, especially if your situation is especially tumultuous.
Divorce is not something solely faced by younger couples and, just like elsewhere, Jefferson County has its fair share of senior residents who might also go through a divorce. With the state’s largest older population residing in Jefferson County, divorce is an issue some senior residents face. Senior divorce in Colorado can be especially complicated due to the length of the marriage, and many of our clients feel overwhelmed by the details of their case. In cases of senior divorce, marital property has usually been accrued over many years making division much harder for everyone involved. Add to this the pressure of keeping financially stable during your “golden years” and the circumstances feel formidable. This is why the divorce attorneys at Plog & Stein, P.C. are also well-versed in the needs of our well-aged client.Consult with Top-Notch Jefferson County Divorce Attorneys
