Equitable Division of Property

Colorado is an equitable property division state. What does that mean? When it comes to dividing marital property in a divorce, property is divided in a fair and equitable manner — but not necessarily 50-50. The court considers many factors in determining how assets and debts should be divided.

What Is Marital Property?

In Colorado, marital property is subject to equitable property division in a divorce.

Determining what is and what isn't marital property can be a challenge. While some property is easily identified as either marital (a house purchased together during the marriage, for example) or separate (a vehicle owned by one spouse coming into the marriage, for example) — other property is not.

  • What happens when one spouse owned a business before the marriage — but the business grew during the marriage?
  • Is a retirement account considered marital property if it was started before the marriage?
  • How are debts divided in a divorce?
