Colorado Springs Divorce Lawyers

Assisting Clients during this Challenging Transition

The grounds for obtaining a divorce or legal separation is that the "marriage is irretrievably broken." Only one party needs to testify that the marriage is irretrievably broken and that counseling or therapy would not lead to reconciliation. At Drexler Law, we know that going through a divorce can be difficult. We are here to help you determine how your situation will play a role in the final outcome. We serve clients in Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas.

What Is the Goal of No-Fault Divorce?

A no-fault divorce is meant to minimize the conflict and retaliation common in the divorce process. Of course, this ignores the fact that emotion, frustration, and anger usually stem from infidelity and can impact the entire mood of the divorce proceedings.

While adultery, domestic violence, wasting of financial assets, and other accusations can contribute to a divorce, the court can still hear testimony if the same evidence is relevant for other purposes. The most common examples involve economic waste where one party throws money away and then demands a high level of spousal maintenance of alimony.

Issues of infidelity or cheating are rarely relevant to a divorce case. Courts tend to issue final orders regarding parenting time, child support, spousal maintenance (alimony), property division, debt allocation, and asset division without much regard to any misconduct by either party.

What Does No-Fault Divorce Really Mean?

Colorado is a no-fault divorce state, which means neither party has to assert wrongdoing to file or obtain a divorce. However, no-fault does not mean that the circumstances of the breakup of a marriage or relationship are irrelevant or that they won't come up in court.

Our attorneys understand that marriages and relationships break down and that marriages or civil unions can become irretrievably broken regardless of the efforts on the part of the couple. Many clients approach us after extensive marital and relationship counseling. Some clients have retained us, and we have encouraged them to suspend or stop the divorce proceedings until they were confident the marriage or relationship was really over.

Does the Reason for Divorce Ever Matter?

Some marriages and relationships simply erode or the parties grow apart without clear fault to either party. Other relationships end because of serious infidelity, drug or alcohol addiction, sex addictions, money problems, disagreement between parenting roles or raising a child, or financial strain caused by irresponsible spending, addictions or gambling problems.

While Colorado is a no-fault state, there are cases where the reason for the breakup of the relationship is important. After all, shouldn't the court know that a party continues to throw money away to feed an addiction if the same party is making an unreasonable demand of financial support in the divorce proceedings?

In other cases, an incident of child abuse will be highly relevant in a child custody proceeding or in a divorce case involving children.
