Divorce Attorney/Legal Separation
One of the most common reasons to seek the advice and representation of a family law attorney has to do with divorce or annulment. Often these cases also include figuring out child custody and visitation rights as well as spousal and child support.
Before consulting a divorce attorney, there are a couple of things to know about filing for divorce in Colorado:
- At least one spouse must have lived in Colorado for at least 90 days.
- Colorado is a no-fault state, which means that your petition for the dissolution of marriage will not place blame on either partner for the divorce.
- State law mandates an equitable distribution of marital property.
- Spousal maintenance (alimony) has numerous factors attributed to the final award amount, making professional legal representation a must to protect your interests.
