In Colorado, getting divorced can sometimes feel like navigating a complex maze. However, if both spouses agree to the terms of the separation, an uncontested divorce can provide a simpler and more streamlined solution.

Understanding Uncontested Divorce in Colorado

An uncontested divorce in Colorado, also known as a simplified dissolution of marriage, is a streamlined way for couples to get divorced when they agree on all aspects of their divorce. This includes agreeing on dividing assets and debts, spousal maintenance, child custody, support if applicable, and other divorce-related issues.

How Does It Work?

Rather than having to go through lengthy court proceedings, couples can file paperwork directly with the court to end their marriage. As long as all the paperwork is filled out properly and both spouses agree on the terms outlined, a judge will review the documents and grant the divorce. This allows couples to save time and money on attorneys and avoid having to appear in court.

Uncontested divorces in Colorado are an option for couples under certain circumstances. This includes:

  • Both spouses agree to get a divorce

  • No minor children or agreement on custody/support if kids are involved

  • Agreement on dividing all marital property and debts

The Benefits of an Uncontested Divorce

One of the primary advantages of an uncontested divorce in Colorado is the reduced cost and time involved. Since both parties agree, hiring attorneys to fight on their behalf or engage in lengthy negotiations is unnecessary. This can save thousands of dollars in legal fees and allow them to move on with their lives more quickly.
