Divorce and Legal Separation in Colorado

If you’re thinking of ending your marriage, the details of divorce law might be the last thing on your mind. Yet apart from its emotional and financial turmoil, divorce is primarily a legal process that involves gathering information, completing and filing Colorado divorce forms and signing final agreements.

In Colorado, most divorces are based on the grounds of irreconcilable differences and property is divided equally. You will need to complete and file a series of forms including financial disclosures, petitions, and a separation agreement.

When children are involved, Colorado law requires that you file a formal parenting plan, a document that spells out where your children will live (Child Custody), visitation arrangements, how they will spend holidays, calculating child support, and more.

Friendly Divorce Guidebook for Colorado: How to Plan, Negotiate and File Your Divorce is a great how-to guide for people who want a fair divorce—without all the hurt, animosity, and misconceptions usually associated with divorce proceedings. Refer to it again and again as your financial picture or your parental responsibilities change.

This book will help you through the decision-making process, the legal system, negotiations, separation, finances, paperwork, parenting plans, and dealing with homes and taxes. This complete guide has the most current Colorado court forms with line-by-line instructions.
