How Property Is Divided In Colorado

Colorado law dictates how property is distributed after a divorce. Using an equitable distribution model, property is divided based on fairness instead of equality between the parties. This means that a judge may not split property 50/50.

The court will consider numerous factors in making a property division decision, including the length of the marriage, the financial needs and earning capacity of both spouses, standard of living, contributions to the marriage and the value of each spouse’s separate property. However, the court has discretion when dividing property. It does not have to follow a set model, and there is no one-size-fits-all solution to property division. A judge will consider each case individually and make decisions that are fair to both parties.

What Assets Are Most Important In Your Divorce?

Property division does not only apply to physical items or real estate. The court also considers many other assets when determining equitable property distribution. Important assets may include:

  • Real estate
  • Retirement accounts
  • Businesses
  • Digital assets
  • Intellectual property

Stock options and other forms of compensation beyond your usual salary are also important assets to consider. Different assets are valuable to each spouse for different reasons. If you have children and want to keep them in the family home and at the same school, maintaining ownership of your house may be more valuable to you than other assets.
