How Can I Get a Quick Divorce in Colorado?
The quickest way to getting getting a divorce in Colorado is when you and your spouse can reach acceptable agreements relating to your legal issues without going to court. The most common scenarios for that are:
- Do It Yourself (pro-se). You can obtain the necessary documents from the courthouse, fill out the paperwork and handle your own divorce. This may be possible for some couples. However, there are some landmine issues we have seen in pro-se divorces, which induce the division of taxes and debt, child custody, alimony, and division of retirement accounts.
- Uncontested Divorce. An uncontested divorce is when you and your spouse essentially reach agreement on all issues, but one of you has an attorney draw up the paperwork and negotiate any remaining issues, as well as pointing out any issues you have missed or have not thought about.
- Mediated Divorce. A mediated divorce is when the parties hire a divorce attorney to act as a mediator who assist them in settling their issues and then preparing the appropriate paperwork. This is quick, keeps the parties out of Court, and is usually much less expensive than a normal divorce.
You should remember, however, that no matter how quickly you resolve your divorce, Colorado has a 91-day waiting period. So the Court cannot finalize your divorce until 91 days after your initial petition is filed.
