Colorado Dissolution of Marriage | Parker Divorce Attorney

Dissolution of Marriage is the fancy legal terminology that refers to divorce. When filing a for a dissolution of marriage, either party must reside in the Colorado for at least 90 days prior to the filing of the Petition. If the parties have children, the children must reside in Colorado for at least six (6) months prior to filing of the Petition for the court to have jurisdiction.

Once you file for divorce, there is a mandatory 90-day waiting period before the court will enter a decree. The quickest you can get divorced is 90 days from the time the Petition was served if one party filed or from the time the Petition was filed if you filed jointly. However, depending on the issues in your case, especially if children are involved, this process may take much longer.

A dissolution of marriage proceeding is usually a complicated process which can be difficult to navigate alone, especially if you have property to divide or if parenting time is a disputed issue. Contact us today to discuss your options.
