What are the Grounds for Divorce in Colorado?

Colorado law provides the option of "no-fault" divorce, meaning that you do not need to prove that either party is responsible for the failure of the marriage. All that is necessary is to state that the relationship is "irretrievably broken." The only other major requirement is that either you or your spouse has been a resident of this state for at least 90 days prior to filing your petition.

What is a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage?

If you and your spouse have agreed to divorce, then you can both sign the petition for dissolution of marriage. If, on the other hand, your spouse is opposed to the divorce or is not in contact with you, then it will be necessary to serve him or her with a copy of the petition, after which your spouse will have 20 days to file a response and counter-claim. If he or she fails to file a response before the deadline, then the court may rule in your favor in a default judgment.

Our Lawyers Handle All Aspects of Divorce

At Clawson & Clawson, LLP our attorneys have more than 100 years of experience combined and are able to help you in all aspects of divorce. This includes, but is not limited to the items below:

Stay in Control of Your Divorce

It is impossible to keep a divorce entirely out of the courtroom, but you have options for protecting your privacy and maintaining control of the proceeding. If you and your spouse are able to work together constructively, a divorce attorney from our firm can assist you with negotiating the terms for an out-of-court settlement. This is referred to as an "uncontested divorce." If, on the other hand, you and your spouse cannot maintain amicable relations, then the divorce will most likely be contested in court.

When this happens, your attorney has the task of persuading the judge to rule in your favor on matters including child custody and visitation, property division, and spousal support. In either scenario, it is in your best interest to retain legal representation from the outset of the case.
