Denver & Colorado Divorce Laws

Each state has it's own laws that govern divorce proceedings. For divorces in Denver, Colorado divorce laws cover the following:

  • Residency requirement: One spouse must be a resident of the state of Colorado for at least 90 days prior to filing. The divorce petition can be filed in any county in which one spouse has been a resident for the previous 90 days.
  • Waiting period: None.
  • Grounds: Colorado is a no-fault divorce state. The only grounds required for a divorce is that the marriage is "irretrievably broken".
  • Property division: Colorado property distribution laws are "equitable distribution". Equitable is not the same as equal -- the courts will divide property, assets and debts in a way that it deems "fair" to each party.

These are only some of the divorce laws that are unique to Colorado. Other issues in divorce, such as spousal support, mediation requirements, child custody and child support, vary on a case-by-case basis, and are ultimately the decision of the judge.
