Spousal Separation

A legal separation permits a married couple to live in separate residences without marital obligations. This means that while still technically married, the couple is free to live their lives independently subject to the property division, support, and parenting time provisions negotiated by their attorneys.

Dissolution Of Marriage

Colorado does not require the assignment of fault in divorce proceeding, so either party can begin divorce proceedings by claiming irreconcilable differences with their spouse. But state law does require that for at least 91 days prior to filing for dissolution of marriage, one spouse must have resided in Colorado.

Issues that divorcing spouses should always consult with a lawyer about prior to petitioning the court for final dissolution include:

Parental responsibilities
Property distribution
Spousal support
Child support

Using Mediation In Divorce Proceedings

Ending a marriage is expensive, exhausting, and can take a great deal of time to complete.  In non-contentious divorces, mediation can play a significant role in speeding up the process, keeping costs down, and communications between divorcing spouses more civil.   Many potential points of contention can be effectively mediated without relying on the court to make a judgement call.
