Can I Get a Divorce in Colorado?
Under Colorado divorce law, it is not necessary to prove “fault” — such as adultery, cruelty or substance abuse. The petition for dissolution of marriage can simply state that the marriage is irretrievably broken.
The basic requirements are that you must have lived in or be domiciled in Colorado for at least 90 days, and as part of your domicile you should have a Colorado driver’s license or ID, be registered to vote and potentially pay taxes in Colorado before you start your divorce. We have handled numerous military divorce cases and can advise you on special considerations.
Addressing All Your Family and Financial Concerns
Divorce can be quite straightforward for people who agree on how all issues will be resolved. You may be able to obtain an uncontested divorce. Much more often, some issues are disputed. Without an attorney, you may be at a major disadvantage on important issues from child custody to property division. In order to explain legal options and analyze potential outcomes, we will:
- Construct a complete picture of your finances — including home equity and other assets as well as debts
- Discuss the roles of both parties in caring for children, generating income and maintaining your household
- Arrive at a vision of what you want most for your future and how aggressively we will pursue those goals
When children, a home, retirement accounts, 401k’s or other factors are involved, it is essential to create a solid action plan. At Kinnaird & Kinnaird, P.C., we will assess your situation and negotiate assertively for you. If an agreement cannot be reached, you will have an experienced trial lawyer on your side.
