Removing the Mystery & Surprise from the Divorce Process
Colorado is known as a no-fault state, meaning one spouse can petition
for divorce if he or she believes that the marriage is irretrievably broken.
Proof or consent from the other spouse will not be needed in order to
file for divorce.
- The general steps to expect during your divorce process include:
- Deciding how to file, when to serve your papers, and where to start the process
- Determining whether you fulfill the Colorado residency requirements
- Reviewing documents and completing forms from the court
- Waiting at least 91 days before entering the divorce decree
- Attending initial status conferences
- Participating in mediation or counseling prior to contested hearings
- Attending a final hearing regarding contested issues
- Issuing a final decree or court order
At each stage of your process, we can keep you informed of things to expect,
common issues that arise, or possible problems in your case. By keeping
you involved at all times, we can help eliminate many of the fears and
uncertain elements that often bring families undue stress.
