Colorado Property Division

Colorado is an equitable distribution state in divorce, which means the Colorado divorce court decides what is fair property distribution between the spouses. When the divorce court is deciding on how to make property divisions, it considers relevant factors such as:

  • Each spouse's contribution to the gain of marital property, including any contribution as a homemaker
  • The value of the property given to each spouse
  • Economic circumstances of each spouse when the Colorado property division becomes effective, including the desire to award the family home or the right to live in the home for a reasonable period to the custodial parent
  • Increases or decreases in value of each spouse's separate property during the marriage or the depletion of the separate property for marital purposes.

Colorado property division depends on the circumstances of the divorce. A local Colorado divorce lawyer can further explain the property division process and how the divorce court may make property distribution in your case.
