Compassionate Denver Attorneys Serving All of Colorado
Uncontested divorce in Colorado occurs when spouses agree on all aspects of their divorce without resorting to a litigious court battle. Kaplan Law L.L.C. has helped many clients reach favorable outcomes that meet the needs of both parties without too much time spent resolving disagreements. Let our divorce lawyers help you smoothly navigate these proceedings and get the best possible outcome for your situation.
Methods of Dissolving Your Marriage
There are three ways to reach an uncontested divorce:
- Reaching agreements before filing for divorce in order to file all agreements at the same time as the paperwork
- Filing for divorce, then reaching, drafting, and filing your agreements thereafter
- Attending mediation either prior to or after filing for divorce, reaching written agreements, and filing them with the court
If you encounter any friction, mediation is typically the best place to agree on terms, and virtually every county will require you to attend mediation unless you reach written agreements and have them filed either at the time you file for divorce or within a couple months thereafter. Mediation can be a smooth process that helps you clear the final sticking points to obtain an uncontested divorce.
People may wrongly assume that if an attorney provides you with advice at any point in the process, your divorce becomes contested. The truth is that even if you agree on all aspects of your divorce, it is important to have an attorney review your final agreements to cover all your bases to make sure you are not missing an essential aspect of the divorce, and to keep you out of court in the future. An attorney can also provide a gut-check as to the fairness of your agreements.
Let Kaplan Law L.L.C. Help
Just as if you have no tentative agreements, if you’re considering an uncontested divorce in Colorado, we can provide unbundled or limited representation to review your mandatory financial disclosures, review any documents you have drafted, and sit down with you and talk about the consequences of your agreements. While it is impossible to account for every contingency or future issue that may arise, getting some advice is better than none at all. It is also a wise investment, as far too many people spend thousands on litigation months or years later to correct errors that could have been easily addressed with the advice of an attorney.
