Dividing marital property in Colorado

When it comes to dividing property in a divorce, Colorado family law courts abide by a principle of “equitable distribution.”

Equitable distribution means a judge will divide property according to what they deem fair, not necessarily what is equal.

Property distribution may favor the higher earner in a couple, as a higher earner may claim more than half of the estate in a divorce according to his or her income.

The division of property is affected by what is marital property and what is separate property.
