Getting a Divorce in Denver, Colorado

Divorce cases in Colorado are started with one party filing a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage. Parties can also file a Petition for Legal Separation, or a Petition for Allocation of Parental Rights (custody cases in which the parties are not married). All petitions can also be filed as co-petitions, which allow the parties to open a proceeding together and avoid certain court costs and costs of service. Parties must reside for before filing.

Understanding the Divorce Process

In terms of the laws governing divorce, Colorado is considered an equitable distribution state (as opposed to a community property state). As an equitable distribution state, Colorado does not have set rules as to how property acquired during the marriage must be divided. Rather, the Courts attempt to divide property as equitably as possible. In addition to the division of property, divorce law in Colorado also covers the award of child support (done with a child support calculator), alimony (also known as spousal support or maintenance), and the custody of children.

The divorce and custody process can vary from county to county, so it is important to have the assistance of experienced divorce counsel when filing for divorce.

Free Divorce Case Evaluation

Our law firm offers a free case evaluation (by telephone), free of charge. This provides an opportunity for people facing a divorce, legal separation or a custody case, to understand their options and what a roadmap to the successful resolution of their case might look like. It also provides an opportunity for our firm to understand the unique issues facing this person, and whether we can help them with their case. From there, our firm would then schedule a longer, more in-depth paid consultation with one of our talented attorneys.

    5 star review  Each and every one of the people at Colorado Legal Group impressed me - not only with their knowledge of family law, but their passion, compassion, attention to detail, and follow-through. They rose to the challenge during one of my most challenging times. And I know they will always be there for me - because when you have children involved, it is always "something". I am confident they can help with my next issue: What is the best way to get a change in custody?

    5 star review  Hannah is great! She has a really good grasp of the law and is extremely helpful. She stays up to date on changes in the laws but also on research surrounding different financial issues and children's issues. Hannah was able to tell me about how the recent changes in the federal tax law may affect maintenance and allowed deductions which was really helpful during the process.

    thumb Alexandra Patrizi

    5 star review  For anyone who hasn’t been through a divorce, the whole process can be completely overwhelming. Mr. Crum takes the time to break down each step of your case and makes sure you know exactly what is happening and going to happen when you leave his office. That is great, but the real reason why I am giving him 5 stars is how he handles himself in court. He is amazing in how he communicates to the judge and handles witnesses. If I could give him more than 5 stars I definitely would!

    thumb Krista Barnett

    5 star review  I am writing this as a lawyer who has seen David in court many times over the course of more than twenty years. He is always thoroughly prepared and a tenacious advocate for his clients. It is clear, though, that he is not a win at all costs attorney and he always tries to focus on the best outcomes for clients and their child. Oh, and he is killer on cross examination.”
