Ensure the Fair Division of Your Marital Property & Debts

In the course of your marriage, you and your spouse have undoubtedly amassed some combination of real property, debts, and assets.

Marital Property vs. Separate Property

The first step of the property division process is to organize all property into one of two categories: marital or separate. Marital property is any property that the spouses are both entitled to and includes anything that was obtained during the marriage – other than individual inheritances or gifts. Separate property is anything that only one spouse can claim, generally anything that was obtained before the marriage.

Property that may be subject to division includes:

  • Real estate
  • Bank accounts
  • Investments
  • Vehicles
  • Business interests
  • Retirement accounts
  • Stock options
  • Personal property, like furniture, art, and household goods
  • The marital home

Equitable Distribution

In Colorado, marital property is divided equitably – not necessarily equally – between the spouses. This means that property should be assigned in a way that is fair. If the spouses cannot agree on how to divide their property, the court will intervene and make a decision on their behalf.

When determining property division, courts will consider:

  • Each spouse’s contribution to the marital property, including any contributions as a homemaker
  • The value of each piece of property
  • The value of the total property assigned to each spouse
  • Any change in the value of separate property during the marriage
  • Each spouse’s financial circumstances
  • The couple’s child custody arrangements, if applicable
