In Colorado, a divorce is the legal process to end a marriage. A petition to “dissolve the marriage” is filed with the court by either one party or jointly. There are three primary approaches to divorce: litigation, mediation, and collaborative law. While we regularly use alternative methods to settle divorce issues, we recognize that disputes involving parental responsibilities (child custody), child support and spousal support, and property division often necessitate taking the matter to court.

In all divorces, the court must divide property. That process is explained in detail here. If there are kids involved, the court will have to address the allocation of parental responsibilities and child support. Depending on the financial landscape of the case, maintenance/alimony may be an issue. Finally, Colorado divorce law stipulates that the court does have authority to award attorney’s fees to one party.
