One of the biggest questions a person considering divorce will seek an answer to is how the courts divide assets in Colorado. Every state has its own approach to asset division, based on both state law and legal precedent by previous divorces in the state. Not knowing the potential financial impact of your divorce can be nerve-wracking, especially if you expect and enjoy a certain standard of living.
There are a number of reasons why couples may seek a divorce. One is abuse. Physical abuse by one spouse to the other, or to the couple's children, is a very valid reason to seek a divorce. However, if you plan to leave an abusive spouse, you are probably quite concerned about the potential outcome of your divorce and any custody proceedings.
