How Long Does a Contested Divorce Take in Colorado?
How long a contested divorce takes in Colorado has a lot to do with the parties and their lawyers. The Court system in Colorado relies heavily on attorneys to push their cases forward, to seek settlement, and to eventually request a trial if the case cannot be settled.
That being said, there are certain things that almost always happen in contested divorce cases, which include the parties taking certain steps to resolve custody, and the parties and their lawyers attempting mediation before requesting trial. The shortest time period for resolving a contested case is usually around six months. Beyond that, some cases go on for multiple years depending on the complexity of the case and the animosity between the parties.
