Divorce or Separation Law
Colorado is a “no fault” divorce state, meaning that the only necessary requirement to institute divorce or separation proceedings is that one spouse must allege the that marriage is “irreconcilably broken.” We recognize that the decision to seek a divorce or separation is never easy. A divorce or separation will affect your finances, living arrangement, and children.
Like any significant life decision, a divorce or separation should be handled carefully, as its ramifications will follow you for many years. Even if you and your spouse already agree on most of the terms of your divorce, it’s important to have a lawyer review the agreement prior to a judge signing it to make sure that your interests are protected.
In cases of divorce or separation, it is often best to define your own future. You will have more control over the terms of your divorce if you and your spouse can reach a settlement, and mechanisms like mediation or collaborative divorce are set up to facilitate a mutually agreeable settlement.
However, if an agreement cannot be reach then we stand ready to fight for your case in court to protect your future.
