A – The most important thing to know about contested divorce cases is that having an attorney on your side to defend and assert your interests will be critical to obtaining successful resolutions in these cases. Although there may be a lot other information that you need to know (and that you can easily obtain by contacting the Law Office of Bruce H. Rabun, LLC), the following is just some of the info that can be critical to know as you proceed with your case:

  • The courts will be overseeing your case, with the presiding judge making the final rulings regarding the division of assets/debts, custody and other disputed matters of your Colorado divorce case.
  • In some cases, the courts may order the litigants (i.e., both sides in the Colorado divorce case) to first try mediation as an alternative dispute resolution option.
  • Contested divorce cases can take much longer to resolve (and can be much more costly) if or when either side in the case is unwilling to compromise on some issues.

Q – What if I signed a pre-nup?

A – If you signed a pre-nuptial agreement prior to getting married (or a post-nuptial agreement after your marriage), then the terms of this agreement will usually be important to determining the outcomes of the Colorado divorce case.

For example, if a pre-nup specifically states that one party in the divorce will not be entitled to spousal support if (s)he has been unfaithful during the marriage, then this stipulation will be respected in the divorce case.

Here, however, it’s important that people realize that:

  • Signing pre-nups doesn’t always make them valid.
  • There are various ways to dispute the terms of pre-nups in Colorado divorce.
  • It’s best to have an experienced attorney on their side when the terms of a pre-nuptial agreement may be an issue or a disputed topic in an upcoming divorce case.
