In accordance to Colorado divorce laws, a divorce attorney or lawyer is not required in order to enter litigation in a Colorado divorce court. Generally speaking, couples seeking to bring the dissolution of a marriage before a Colorado divorce court can do so without any legal assistance. However, because divorce proceedings can often times be complex and cause stress, it is recommended that an attorney be employed to assist through the divorce process. Furthermore, situations involving child custody and the division of assets will be subject to applicable Colorado divorce laws, and thus, will have to be considered in such legal procedures. A divorce attorney can help with the overall process, particularly in such complex legal issues, even though it is not legally required by Colorado divorce laws.
