What Does a Divorce Attorney Do?

When beginning to file for divorce, you shouldn’t take on this process alone. A divorce lawyer can help you understand the legal implications of a divorce and set out realistic goals. The primary objective of any quality divorce lawyer is to ensure a fair and favorable outcome for their client that aligns with state law.

 

Without legal representation, you may end up agreeing to a divorce order that does not favor you in the long run. You may even fail to meet certain procedural requirements that harm your position in the case. We represent clients to ensure that their legal and family goals are met.

How is a Divorce Different from a Legal Separation?

In many ways, these two processes are similar because filing for a legal separation requires a comparable amount of time, effort, and money as a divorce. When filing for legal separation or a divorce, you will first address the division of marital assets and debts, the allocation of parental rights, and orders for maintenance when applicable. The primary difference is that following a legal separation, you are still married. Some couples may choose to file for a legal separation (instead of a divorce) due to religious beliefs, moral values, or other concerns.

 

When pursuing a divorce, you will file a petition for dissolution of marriage with your county court. The minimum amount of time to obtain a divorce in Colorado is 90 days, but the process could take longer depending on the Court.

How can our Denver Divorce
Attorneys Help You?

Removing the mystery & surprise from the divorce process.

Colorado is a no-fault state, meaning one spouse can petition for divorce if he or she believes that the marriage is irretrievably broken. There does not need to be additional evidence or cause as grounds for divorce in Colorado. Proof of consent from the other spouse will not be needed in order to file for divorce. Our expert legal services will help guide you through the entire process.
