One issue that is present in most divorces in Colorado is property division, and it can be a contentious one. This is because most people have either a sentimental attachment to many of their marital assets, or the assets may be very valuable and, thus, very sought after. Moreover, in Colorado, there is no guarantee that marital assets will be divided between the spouses equally.
This is because, unlike some other states in the nation, Colorado is an equitable distribution state. This means that a judge will divide the couple's assets based on what is fair, so it is possible that one spouse might walk away with a greater share of marital assets than the other. For this reason, it is important to have someone by your side who is experienced with Colorado divorce law and the property division process.
At our firm, we believe in taking a comprehensive approach to property division. This means we will work with other professionals, such as investigators and accountants, to provide our clients with the guidance they need to understand what their assets are worth. This way, our clients can make informed decisions regarding the division of assets.
Sometimes, property division cases can be negotiated out of court. We are candid with our clients when it comes to advising them as to whether they should accept a property division settlement or whether they should go to trial. Property division issues can be incredibly complex, so it is important to work with someone with experience and good judgment.
