In some states, divorce law may require a couple to recognize divorce waiting periods. These designated amounts of time may happen before filing for divorce, after the divorce petition is filed or before remarrying.
Colorado divorce law doesn't have a divorce waiting period before filing the divorce petition. As long as you meet the Colorado residency requirement, you can file for divorce at any time. Once you have filed for divorce, there is a 90 day waiting period before finalizing the Colorado divorce process. Colorado divorce laws don't require a remarriage waiting period; either spouse can remarry anytime after the final divorce decree has been issued.
