Is Colorado a no-fault divorce state? The answer to that question is yes. This simply means that a court in Colorado does not consider grounds or elements of misconduct in determining whether a decree of dissolution of marriage should be entered. A no-fault state means that in Colorado, we typically see cases where it is simply alleged, for whatever reason, that one or both of the parties have decided that they want a divorce because the marriage is irretrievably broken. If the marriage is irretrievably broken, then the parties will either submit to that in an agreement form, or they will tell the court that they do not wish to remain married for whatever reason. It’s always good to consult with an attorney any time you’re going through a divorce action because there are long-range implications by whatever rights you are giving up or whatever documents you have signed regarding your divorce case. You always want to get representation beforehand. Seeking the advice from someone who’s qualified, who’s done family law for a very long time, is important to you.
