Facing the prospect of divorce can be overwhelming and seem like an insurmountable mountain to climb. Our team at Divorce Matters is here to help. We understand there are a ton of questions swirling around in your head right now. We know it feels like there is a lot of uncertainty about your future and confusion about what you should do. You might be asking things like:

  • What are the specific Denver laws that will affect my divorce? Do I need to be a Colorado resident to get a divorce? How long will it take? How often will I need to go to court, and where?
  • What will happen to the side business that I run, or our home, or any other assets we own?
  • Who will have custody of my children? What if my spouse wants to move out of state after the divorce?
  • How can I support myself financially? Will my former spouse be required to pay alimony?
  • What should I do if I’m being threatened by my spouse because I want to leave?

Words From Our Clients

I appreciated that not only did Will know law like I know my colors, but he was a counselor as well and guided me through the process. I was nervous many times but was able to fully out my trust in what he was doing and I couldn't be happier. I will continue to refer people to him as o hear of those needing assistance.


Going through a challenging divorce is hell, your team had my back and represented me with a solid council. I have my daughters and got to stay in Colorado with them. I cannot thank you enough.


Keep doing what you doing; your firm rocks!

Commonly Asked Questions About Divorce

How long do I have to respond to a divorce petition?

Once you have received notice that your spouse has filed for divorce, you have 21 days to respond if you live within the state. If you live out-of-state, then you have 35 days to respond.

Can I date while my divorce is pending?

There is no law in Colorado that says you can’t date while your divorce is pending. Adultery plays no role in your divorce as Colorado is a no-fault state. However, it may still be wise to avoid dating so as to avoid animosity from your ex-spouse during any negotiations.

Can I get a divorce if we were never officially married?

In Colorado, you may be considered to be married under “common law marriage” even if there was no wedding or rings. As long as you and your partner presented yourself as married to the public, you are likely protected under divorce statutes in Colorado.
