How Does Adultery Affect Divorce in Colorado?
Colorado is a no-fault state when it comes to the grounds for divorce. This means that the Court will not consider either spouse’s misconduct when granting the divorce or awarding property or support. The only recognized legal basis for divorce in the state of Colorado is the irretrievable breakdown of the marriage.
When it comes to adultery, the only issue that may be relevant is if the spouse in the extra-marital relationship is bringing the children around their new partner, and the effect of that is not in the best interests of the children. In that instance, the Court may intervene in terms of the child custody order.
