How Long Do You Have to Be Separated Before Divorcing in Colorado?
Couples do not have to be legally separated before filing for divorce in Colorado, and in fact, some divorces are started while the parties are still living together. If tensions are running high in the home, we often recommend that one of the parties move out while the divorce is pending. This does not prejudice either party, and it often avoids unnecessary complications in the divorce case, like the potential for domestic violence.
How is Legal Separation Different From a Divorce?
A legal separation and a divorce both address the same legal issues. The only difference is that the parties are divorced at the end of a divorce case, but are still married at the end of a legal separation.
