Collaborative Divorce in Colorado
Is Collaborative Divorce Right for You?
As Colorado is a no-fault divorce state, the court simply needs to find that the marriage is irretrievably broken to grant a dissolution of the marriage. After that, the court will determine the equitable distribution of marital assets and debts. In some instances, couples may wish to come to an agreement before they go to court—commonly referred to as a collaborative divorce.
The Collaborative Divorce Process
In a collaborative divorce, each party works with his or her own attorneys to determine his or her needs and goals, and how to proceed with the divorce in a healthy, productive manner. All issues, including maintenance, child custody, child support, and divisions of assets and debts are addressed and resolutions made. The court has no involvement in a collaborative divorce until all agreements between the two parties are finalized. Once agreements are finalized, they are filed with the court, and the court signs the final decree for the dissolution of the marriage.
A key part of a successful collaborative divorce is that each party agrees to be completely transparent. All information, including financial disclosures, reasons behind parenting issues, and any other matter, will be shared equally and openly between both parties and their attorneys. As each collaborative divorce case will be different based on the needs of the family, a divorce attorney from Cantafio & Song PLLC, can work with you closely to establish your legal goals and objectives and help you obtain them.
