Denver Property Division Lawyers
When a marriage ends and the divorce process begins, one of the most important tasks that lie ahead is that of property division. Dividing assets and debts is often one of the biggest hurdles in a divorce. Fortunately in Colorado, equity plays a role and each party is not subject to a mandatory 50/50 split on this issue. It is important for individuals facing divorce to work with an attorney who can help make this process as seamless as possible.

How Property Division Works In Colorado
Colorado is an equitable state in terms of property division. This means that all assets and debts are divided fairly between spouses, but not necessarily equally. The courts consider any number of factors when determining how to divide property in a divorce:
- The length of the marriage
- The ages of each spouse
- The economic circumstances of each spouse
- The earning capacity of each spouse
- Non-monetary contributions to the marriage, such as time spent raising children
- Other factors
Property is either classified as marital or separate. Marital property includes property acquired during the marriage and is jointly owned by both spouses. Separate property is property owned individually by one spouse and not the other, generally from before the marriage occurred. We can assist throughout the process of equitable division of marital property.
