Divorce in the State of Colorado is legally called 'dissolution of marriage'. Colorado is a no-fault divorce state, which means that a marriage may be dissolved when at least one of the partners in the marriage want to dissolve it. It is not necessary that both partners agree to this. The only residency requirement is that party seeking the divorce, also known as the Petitioner, must have lived in Colorado for 90 days before the beginning of the divorce proceedings. At the divorce hearing, a judge will make a final decision on child custody, debt and asset distribution, and child support. If these matters are worked out beforehand, the judge will usually rubber stamp them and make them official. If not, the judge will make a decision on them. Generally, it is better to come to an amicable agreement rather than force a judge to make a decision.
