    It is not advisable to represent yourself in a legal matter that involves your family. Even if you and your spouse are on good terms and are capable of maintaining amicable relations, you must realize that the law is complex and you could easily end up with an outcome that does not favor your best interests. You have too much at stake to take any chances. Having the representation of an attorney with a thorough understanding of family law defending your personal interests is invaluable for achieving the best possible outcome.

    A divorce ends the marriage, while a legal separation does not. In a legal separation, you and your spouse will make arrangements regarding children, property, debts, and support, but the marriage will legally remain intact.
    Courts generally favor some form of joint custody that ensures a continuing and meaningful relationship with both parents. This is believed to be in the child’s best interests, which is the main underlying guideline of the courts. Denial of custody would only occur if the court found that it would put the child’s safety and wellbeing at risk, such as when a parent has abused drugs or alcohol or has a history of domestic violence.
    You will have to wait 90 days from when your spouse was served divorce paperwork before you can be legally divorced. However, if you and spouse disagree on the various issues of your divorce involving children, support, the division of marital property, and more, it will take longer to handle this, whether outside of court or at trial. Your case may also be impacted by court schedules.
    Colorado adopted the no-fault rule in 1972, which provides only one basis for divorce. That basis consists of an “irretrievable breakdown” of the marriage. Thus, if either spouse believes the relationship cannot be reconciled, that spouse can seek a divorce and the court will grant it. This means that you do not have to prove any type of marital misconduct by your spouse. However, you and your spouse will still have to come to settlement terms regarding the issues relevant to your divorce, such as child custody, the division of property, and more.Is Colorado a no-fault divorce state?
