When it comes to matters involving your family, you can rely on the caring and experienced attorneys at the Longmont law firm of Flanders, Elsberg, Herber & Dunn, LLC. Our firm has been helping the people of Northern Colorado find optimal solutions to their legal problems since 1871. We handle all aspects of divorce cases, from division of property to maintenance and alimony, child support and the allocation of parental responsibilities including visitation and child custody. In all cases, we seek to find equitable arrangements that work for all parties involved, but we are always prepared to zealously represent our clients at trial.
Colorado is a no-fault divorce state. This means that either spouse can file for divorce by simply alleging an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage, a standard that is nearly always met. Unlike most other states, Colorado does not allow divorces based on fault. This means that a family law court will not take infidelity, abuse or abandonment into account when deciding whether to grant a divorce, although the court may consider fault in determining maintenance/alimony and asset/debt allocation matters.
To meet the state’s residency requirement, at least one spouse must have lived in Colorado for 91 days before filing a divorce petition, at a fee of $230. Depending on whether you and your spouse are able to work together to agree on the issues involved, a divorce can take anywhere from a few months to years to resolve. Cases involving children tend to be more complex. Whether your divorce is simple or more complicated, our attorneys work with you on every aspect of your case.
Depending on your situation, your focus may be on one or more parts of the divorce process. Our attorneys draw upon years of experience in helping clients deal with all aspects of marriage dissolution, including:
While it is possible to file a divorce without the assistance of a lawyer, an experienced attorney dedicated to reaching an optimal result in your case makes the process much smoother.

Our attorneys seek to make even the most complex divorce as easy as possible so that you and your family can move forward with confidence.
