Protect your rights during a Colorado divorce

On Behalf of | May 15, 2015 | Divorce

In our previous blog post, we discussed how there are certain markers that show if you are a good candidate for marriage counseling. Even with marriage counseling, there is still a chance that you won’t be able to save your marriage. When that occurs, it is important for you to protect your rights as you go through the divorce process.

We know that you might have some questions about how divorce works in Colorado. Since Colorado recognizes no-fault divorces, you won’t have to prove fault in order to get a divorce. This means that even if adultery was a factor that led to the end of your marriage, that fact won’t affect certain aspects of your divorce. Instead, you have to focus on learning about how the law affects your divorce.

Of course, there are some aspects of the divorce that actions during the marriage might affect. For example, if domestic violence was part of your marriage, that will be considered during child custody hearings. It won’t however, be considered when property is being divided.

From start to finish, it is important for you to know what to expect at every step during the divorce process. You should work to understand property division, child custody, child support and other matters. This can help you to make sure that you are making choices that keep your best interests at the heart of the matter while making sure that what you expect to happen is legally possible. We can help you out along your journey toward a new, single life.
