In Colorado, once one party files for divorce, there is nothing the other party can do to prevent the divorce from proceeding forward. Hence, the term "Contested Divorce" does not refer to whether or not the divorce should take place, but rather to the terms on which the divorce is concluded.

For example, a divorce may become contested because one or the other party is seeking maintenance (alimony), or there may be a dispute as to the parenting time each party should receive. There may be concerns regarding child abuse or whether one party or the other is fit to parent the children. The distribution of assets are commonly disputed, such as what property should be considered marital assets and how much income each party really makes for purposes of determining child support or spousal maintenance.

Such disputes are handled through discovery, investigative inquiries, asset searches, trial preparation, and legal argument. Our law offices employ competent attorneys who can advise you not only on the law and the judicial process, but also on the investigative methods, their limits, and the likely outcome.
