Fred, Lucy and Wendi were very professional and paid close attention to court deadlines and appearances. I was made aware in advance what documents needed to be filed and I was able to look them over before they filed them. I always knew what was going on with my case because they were very communicative about the whole divorce process. I would definitely recommend Dunsing & Deakins to anyone going through a divorce or legal separation.

Lucy, Wendi, and Fred were all amazing throughout my case. Lucy's knowledge and expertise, as well as the law firm's professional connections with mediators and child family investigators, led to a custody resolution that truly represents the best interest of my son. Many thanks!

The Basic Divorce Timeline

Every divorce is different, and the process and timeline for reaching dissolution will depend on the facts of your unique case. The minimum time for final dissolution is 91 days, but a divorce can take many months or years if the situation is complicated by complex asset division or disputes regarding children.

If you and your spouse are unable to reach an agreement, either on your own or through mediation, you may need to appear in a court hearing before a judge.
If you and your spouse are unable to reach an agreement, either on your own or through mediation, you may need to appear in a court hearing before a judge.

Initial Filing

In general, you or your attorney files a summons and petition with the court and serves it on your spouse. Your spouse then has 21 days (35 if living outside Colorado) to file a response.

Financial Disclosures

You have 42 days (from the date of service) to file your financial disclosures. Our qualified divorce attorneys can help prepare your disclosures, examine your spouse’s disclosures, and assist in formulating settlement goals, including those related to asset division, support, and living arrangements.

Negotiations

Finally, negotiations on the settlement agreement begin. If you and your spouse cannot reach an agreement, either on your own or through mediation, you may need to appear in a court hearing before a judge. It takes time to get on the court’s schedule, and then the pre-trial procedure can also take extensive time. In the end, a family law judge will issue permanent orders.
