Uncontested divorce in Colorado

When the couples come to the tough decision to end their marriage, they have two options:

  • When there are a lot of issues that spouses cannot solve on their own to be in a full agreement, they can initiate contested divorce. This kind of dissolution presupposes the involvement of a third party such as the judge or attorney to reach a decision concerning divorce-related questions. In this case, the couple must hire a lawyer to present their interests in court. Later, during the trial, they have to present their arguments and evidence for the judge to make a final decision based on all the facts. This type of divorce is extremely tiresome, expensive, and stressful for both spouses and their families.
  • However, if there are no unresolvable disputes, Colorado (as many other states) allows couples to get an uncontested divorce. This type of dissolution is believed to be less time-consuming and emotionally stressful in comparison to a contested one. Colorado uncontested divorce is possible when spouses believe they can agree on such aspects as alimony, child custody and support, and the division of debts/property. Besides, it is possible to get an uncontested divorce in Colorado without a lawyer or any juridical help. Overall, spouses must only pay a filing fee since they do not require lawyers. Uncontested divorce is also considered a relatively quick process because the spouses have no issues that must be resolved with the assistance of a judge and attorneys.

However, even if you and your ex are in a full agreement, you will still have to face some struggles. First of all, you will need to find all the documents required for filling. If you do not want to seek any help and just plan to search for these forms on the Web, you have to be aware of the fact that there is a huge number of outdated documents out there. Besides, without legal knowledge, you may make some mistakes while filling in the forms, which will lead to a court rejection. Therefore, it is best to cooperate with OnlineDivorcer to avoid such problems.

Getting a divorce in Colorado with children

Deciding to end their marriage, the couples with children have to take the following into consideration:

  • The state of Colorado does not have joint or sole custody; instead, it has ‘parental responsibility,’ which can be joint or primary.
  • If parents equally share overnight visitation with the child, then it is qualified as joint parental responsibility. If a parent has less than 90 overnight visitations, the other one has primary parental responsibility.
  • Parental responsibility is also divided into residential and decision-making. Sole decision-making responsibility presupposes that only one parent has a right to make all the important decisions concerning the child’s life. Shared decision-making responsibility means that both parents make such decisions.
  • Before the court trial, the spouses need to make a parenting schedule. If they are unable to reach an agreement, the judge will determine the suitable one based on the best interest of a child.
