In some cases, it is possible to get a divorce in the State of Colorado without the help of an attorney. However, when you seek to significantly alter your family, you must remember that a divorce is not just about closing a chapter in your life. The decisions you make or the decisions a judge may make when you cannot reach an agreement will have long range implications and consequences; making the decision to go it alone without a lawyer is ill-advised. That is why you must carefully consider not only the experience of your lawyer, but the benefits of having a powerful advocate on your side.
