Property Division

Colorado is an "equitable distribution" state. A�Marital Property in Colorado includes everything a couple has acquired during their marriage, excluding gifts and inheritances. A�This includes houses, cars, personal property, investment accounts, 401(k) accounts and pensions.A� We will help you obtain the best possible outcome in the division of marital property.

Protecting the Interests of the Children

If possible, both sides should try to work together before, during and after divorce, to act in the best interests of any children involved.A� Decisions must be made, such as where the children will live, how much support must be paid, and who will be responsible for important day-to-day decisions impacting their childrena��s lives.A� Often, the parents may make these decisions together, privately.A� Other times, mediation may be necessary.A� If an agreement is not reached through either process, the court will help make the decision.
