Dividing Marital Property

In Colorado, marital property consists of the property, assets, and money that is acquired during the marriage. This does not include property that is owned only by one spouse or property acquired prior to a marriage.

It also does not include:

  • Property owned prior to marriage
  • Gifts
  • Inheritance left to one spouse
  • Property excluded by a legal agreement
  • Property acquired after a legal separation

The first step in the property division process is to determine which assets are considered marital property and what is separate property.

Laws change frequently and each situation is unique. For this reason, it is important to seek legal advice from a knowledgeable and experienced attorney. VanLandingham Law can ensure that you receive the appropriate portion of the property and assets that have been acquired during your marriage.

Equitable Distribution

Colorado uses equitable distribution for property division in divorces. This means that property is not automatically divided equally between spouses, but in a way that is fair and equitable. For example, a spouse earning a higher income may receive a larger portion of the marital property. Our property division attorney in Denver can explain the law as it pertains to your unique situation and advocate for your best interests.

If you have questions about how property division laws affect your situation, call (720) 513-2299 for a consultation.
