If you’re getting divorced, you are probably nervous about how your assets are going to be divided. Will you lose everything in the divorce? What can you do to make sure that doesn’t happen?
Property and asset division in a Colorado divorce can be complicated. Here is some general information as well as why you should consider hiring a divorce lawyer for help.
How Colorado Divides Marital Assets
Colorado is an equitable distribution state, meaning that the Court will look at what’s fair when dividing up assets. Many factors will go into dividing assets, including which spouse worked (one or both), which one ran the home and took care of the children, if there are any, each spouse’s financial needs as well as earning capacity, and each spouse’s age and health condition.
Ensuring a Favorable Outcome
If you and your spouse have an amicable relationship, you may be able to resolve asset division without an attorney and settle asset distribution in mediation. This is the best-case scenario. However, if disputes arise or you and your spouse are unable to reach an agreement, hiring a divorce lawyer will keep you protected and help you get what you need out of the divorce. You can strategize with your lawyer to figure out how you’ll earn a living and keep up with your bills post-divorce, which is incredibly necessary at this time.
