Are there Requirements for Getting a Divorce in Colorado?

If you are in an unhappy marriage, you could be considering your options. Of course, trying to reconcile your relationship might be a priority, but many spouses conclude that they and their partners are fundamentally incompatible. If you have resigned yourself to divorce, starting to think about the process and your desired goals/outcome are the most logical next steps.

Why a Divorce can be Empowering

If you are in an unhappy marriage, you're probably wishing that you were able to enjoy the positive aspects of being single. You may look back on times before your marriage and think about how lucky you were to have full freedom and a lack of responsibility.

Here are 4 Things to do to Make Your Divorce Easier on Yourself

Divorcing is never something people plan for when they get married. When you decided to marry your spouse, you were dedicated entirely to making your marriage work. Even after they cheated on you with another person, you forgave them and decided to move forward with your marriage. 

Prepare for Feelings of Loss When Your Marriage Ends

The decision to end a marriage is one that most people don't take lightly, especially when there are kids involved. For an individual who has made the step to go through a divorce, changes are going to come. Some of these, such as having to set a new budget and deciding where to live, are commonly considered. There are others that people might not think about right away. 

How The Family Home Is Divided In A Colorado Divorce

For many couples in Colorado, the family home is their largest asset. Because of this, questions about how this asset will be divided during a divorce is one of their biggest concerns. This is especially true when only one spouse is listed on the mortgage and/or the title. As such, many going through a divorce in which their name is excluded from the mortgage of the family home or excluded from the title want an attorney to help them understand exactly to what they are entitled.

Property Considerations When Getting a Divorce in Colorado

Pursuant to the Colorado Uniform Dissolution of Marriage Act, the courts are required to divide all marital property equitably. Many people mistakenly believe this requires the courts to divide property equally. In fact, an equitable division of property does not mean equal.

A pup nup protects your pet during divorce

Pet owners know that their four-legged friends are so much more than just animals -- they are members of the family. Unfortunately, Colorado law does not see it that way. Pets are treated as just another piece of property when it comes to legal matters. This can spell trouble for pet parents who are going through a divorce, as they may be faced with the possibility of losing contact with their beloved animal altogether.

Know this point about divorcing with a family-run business

A stay-at-home spouse often has complete dependence upon their partner for financial support. When the source of income is a family business, both spouses may play roles in the company, but only one might have a working knowledge of what's going on with the finances. This can work well as long as the marriage is on a good foundation, but it can pose a problem if things shift and the marriage becomes rocky.

How to get through a divorce during financial struggles

The decision to file for a divorce is likely to be an emotional one rather than a financial one. Therefore, even if you are not sure that you can afford to go through a divorce or if you are uncertain about how it will affect you financially, you may decide to file anyway. Alternatively, you may have decided to file for a divorce before losing your job and entering a tough financial situation.
