Divorce, known in Colorado as a Dissolution of Marriage, is the legal proceeding wherein the Court dissolves your marriage. The law is written to protect both parties and any children during the dissolution, which is why you must go through a whole legal process to end your marriage. You must both agree to the terms of your divorce – like property division, parenting time and decision-making, support, and other important matters – before the divorce is finalized. If you cannot come to an agreement, the court will make the necessary decisions to finalize the divorce.
Ideally, you and your spouse can work with your attorneys to come to an understanding on all aspects of your divorce before you reach the court. The more things you can agree on, the shorter the process and the less expensive it will be.
