Colorado Residency Requirement

The Colorado divorce court will enter a divorce decree once one of the spouses have been domiciled in the state for at least 90 days before filing for divorce. The divorce petition can be filed in the county where the petitioner or respondent live, but typically, the petition is filed where the petitioner resides.

To be considered domiciled in Colorado, you must meet a certain set of standards that are defined in the state statutes.

A local Colorado divorce lawyer can further explain how to establish domicile in Colorado, as well as other state divorce requirements such as Colorado divorce waiting periods.
