Types of Divorce in Colorado

  • No-Fault Divorce: Colorado's stance on no-fault divorce allows couples to dissolve their marriage based on an irreparable breakdown, without assigning fault.
  • Collaborative Divorce: Spouses each retain their attorneys to negotiate amicably.
  • Mediated Divorce: A neutral mediator facilitates discussions to reach a mutual agreement.
  • Contested Divorce: Disputes over terms require a court hearing.
  • Uncontested Divorce: Spouses agree on terms without court intervention.

Grounds for Divorce in El Paso County

Colorado is a no-fault state, which means that the only grounds for dissolving a marriage is if just one spouse states that it is irretrievably broken. However, what if one spouse disagrees, and states that the marriage can be fixed, what are the next steps? The court may consider the following:

  • What events led to the divorce filing?
  • What is the potential that the marriage can be saved?
  • That the couple attend counseling prior to the proceedings taking place.

The Timeline of Divorce in El Paso County

The duration of a divorce in El Paso County can vary greatly. Factors influencing the timeline include the type of divorce, asset division, child custody considerations, and the local court's case backlog. To expedite the process, agreeing on key issues and ensuring all paperwork is correctly filed are crucial steps.
