Resolving Issues in Your Divorce

No matter the relationship that you have with your spouse, you and your spouse will face a host of unique issues that you will need to resolve before your divorce can be finalized. For the majority of couples, these issues include:

  • Property division. How property will be divided between you and your spouse is one of the biggest questions you’ll face when getting divorced. While you and your spouse may make this decision together without court intervention, if a decision cannot be reached, Colorado law holds that property must be divided equitably.
  • Child custody and child support. For parents, determining with whom a child will live can be a very emotional choice. Colorado courts hold that the best interests of the child must be prioritized. It is typically the noncustodial parent who is ordered by the court to make child support payments.
  • Spousal maintenance/alimony. Sometimes, one party in a marriage may be financially dependent on the other. When this is the case, this party may seek spousal maintenance/alimony from the financially independent party.

Our lawyers represent you in all discussions and negotiations with your spouse, and can advise you regarding how to protect your best interests. We encourage you and your spouse to reach out-of-court agreements, and can assist you in forming and reviewing a parenting plan/time sharing arrangement.

Guiding Your Through the Legal Aspects of Divorce

In addition to the many issues in a divorce that can be emotional and difficult to resolve, there are also a number of technical legal aspects that you will face. For example, in order to file for divorce in the first place, residency requirements must be satisfied. While there is only one grounds for divorce in Colorado—that the marriage is irretrievably broken—it is important to know how to file for a divorce, serve your spouse, or respond to a petition for divorce if you have been served.
