Colorado Grounds for Divorce

Colorado divorce courts accept no fault grounds for divorce. To be granted a divorce in Colorado, you must declare your marriage to be irretrievably broken.

No fault divorce grounds don't name either spouse for being at fault for the divorce. When filing for divorce, you don't have to prove that your spouse committed some kind of wrongdoing to end the marriage. Before filing for a no fault divorce in Colorado, you must have lived there for at least 90 days.  Generally, with no fault divorce grounds, there may be a period of time where you and your spouse will have to live separately to ensure reconciliation is not possible.

Before filing for divorce in Colorado, you will need to meet both the Colorado residency requirement and Colorado divorce waiting periods.
