(Colorado Statutes - Article 10 - Sections: 14-10-106) In the District Court in and for the County of __________ and State of Colorado.
This is the Colorado court where the dissolution of marriage will be filed.
Petition for Dissolution of Marriage and Decree of Dissolution of Marriage.
These are the essential documents needed to start and finalize a dissolution of marriage according to Colorado law.
If the court discovers it does not have jurisdictional rights to hear the case it will not be accepted or it will eventually be dismissed.
The requirements are as follows: The district court shall enter a decree of dissolution of marriage when: The court finds that one of the parties has been domiciled in this state for ninety days next preceding the commencement of the proceeding.
One Colorado is bringing the bill to the legislature again in 2017 with hopes it will finally pass.
By continuing to educate friends, neighbors and policy makers, we can ensure that all Coloradans, including transgender people, can live their lives as they choose; free from the fear of abuse or discrimination.
Equitable does not mean equal, but rather what is fair.
