Compassionate Legal Guidance During the Colorado Divorce Process

If you are contemplating a divorce, you are far from alone. Divorce can be one of the most stressful and emotional situations a person can go through. If you are facing a divorce or in the middle of one, you may find yourself overwhelmed with questions about the process and worried about what will happen. How does divorce work in Colorado? Who will get custody of the kids? How will the property be divided? Can I still live in my house? At the Law Offices of Clifton Black, PC, our experienced and compassionate family law attorneys are here to answer your questions and support you through each step of the divorce process.

Understanding the Divorce Process in Colorado

If you are pursuing a divorce yourself, the first thing your attorney will help you prepare is an initial pleading that will be filed with a Colorado family law court to start the divorce process. After filing, the other spouse (or “respondent) must be served the relevant paperwork by you, the “petitioner.” In the court’s eyes, it does not matter whether you are the petitioner or respondent – both are treated equally. After filing, a dissolution of marriage cannot be ordered for 91 days. During the divorce proceedings, you will need to address several factors, including the division of property and debts, spousal support, child custody, and child support. It’s natural to feel overwhelmed and even intimidated by these decisions, so we encourage you to lean on us for the support and guidance you need to make informed choices with greater clarity and confidence.

Helping You Identify the Most Strategic Path Forward

Although divorce may be the most common way to dissolve a marriage in Colorado, there are other options you may want to explore. For example, legal separation allows you and your spouse to untangle your lives from one another (i.e., separate your property, establish child support, etc.), but you remain legally married in the eyes of the law. This option may work well for those belonging to certain religious traditions or wishing to live separately but remain legally married for economic reasons. As you start to explore your options for ending your marriage, our knowledgeable divorce attorneys will work with you to articulate your goals and identify the most appropriate course of action to ensure you can obtain your desired outcome.
