What are the Colorado divorce laws?
Two of the main things to understand about Colorado when it comes to divorce are (1) that Colorado is an equitable distribution state and (2) that Colorado is also a “no-fault” state when it comes to the legal grounds for granting a divorce.
As an equitable distribution state, the Colorado courts will first at whether the parties have separate property. Separate property is set aside to the owner of such property and not divided as part of the marital property. Marital property, which is defined as property generally acquired by the parties during the marriage, is divided in as equitable a fashion as possible, considering a variety of factors, including the economic circumstances each spouse will face after the divorce; and each spouse’s contribution to the acquisition of the marital property.
