The divorce process can be a very painful and emotional time for a family—especially when there are children involved.

Filing for Divorce in Colorado

To file for divorce in Colorado, one spouse must have been a Colorado resident for at least 90 days. Colorado is a no-fault divorce state, which means that the only reason that a husband or wife has to give to file for a dissolution of marriage is that the relationship is irretrievably broken. Although the minimum waiting period for finalizing a Colorado divorce is 90 days, many divorce cases—especially ones that require the negotiation of agreements regarding child custody, child visitation, child support, property division, spousal maintenance, parenting rights, or paternity—can take longer.

Colorado law requires that spouses filing for divorce go through Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) to resolve any disagreements before resorting to litigation. Mr. Chamberland will exhaust all avenues of mediation in an attempt to resolve any divorce-related disputes with the other party. In the event that negotiation is no longer an option, he will go to court and steadfastly fight for your rights.

Client Reviews
"Ray did an excellent job representing me in my custody case involving my two children. He and his staff were genuinely interested in my case, they were responsive in a timely manner, and the attorney was well-prepared in court. We ended up with a good result and I will use his services again in the future should the need arise. I could not have done it on my own and I appreciate the excellent service he provides!" Jim
"He did such a great job during my divorce & custody battle with my ex-husband. Ray & Cindy are extremely responsive, helpful, accommodating and understanding of all situations. He was able to get me everything I wanted and I recommend him to everyone. In fact, I'm almost positive my ex husband even refers people to Ray for divorce and custody haha." Tina
"Ray and his staff did a great job on my divorce case! It's a tough situation to be in but Ray's advice was accurate and helpful and he did not sugar-coat anything. The chosen custody evaluator did a good job with his investigation as Ray said he would, and my concerns were always taken seriously by the attorney. He was prompt in answering my questions and did his best to keep my attorneys fees as low as possible. Together we achieved a good result and I would use his services again in the future." Richard
