How Does It Start
It can start when one of the parties informs the other of their intention for divorce or, the disagreements between them become so severe, they want to separate. Perhaps the more impactful is when one of the parties is served with court documents notifying a divorce proceeding has been filed.
From a practical approach, mediation can be ordered by the court or, initiated by the couple before filing their case. Some have tried resolving and reaching agreements between themselves before anything else; Although the reliability of these agreements may depend on the type of relationship the couple has and the level of conflict they are in. If you talk to others, you will find some remarks favor it, while others might suggest an attorney or initiating the process in court. Mediation is always advisable
My experience suggests that it is always better to be properly informed.
It is important to have a comprehensive understanding of the see the details and the big picture, and understand the cause/effect your decisions may have on you and your family in the short and long term.
Mediation is confidential. While mediating, the decision making is in your hands; once it goes to court you are ceding your decision making to a third person, the judge, who will make a decision for you.
We extend a cordial invitation to try mediation to resolve your differences.
WHERE TO START?
Mediation can be ordered by the court or, initiated by the couple before filing their case. The court will require documents that inform the judge about your circumstances, decisions, and agreements; among others.
Sworn Financial Affidavit
Depending on your case you might need additional documents. At the bottom of the page, you will find some court documents as samples. If you have questions, consult with an attorney, go to the Self Help Center at the courthouse of your district or, visit Colorado Court website https://www.courts.state.co.us.
Please remember to bring all your documents to the mediation; we will need them to cross-reference information. Mediation gives you the opportunity to make decisions together.
AS THE PROCESS STARTS
INFORMATION AT A GLANCE
In a divorce process, either the petitioner goes to the courthouse to file documents for a dissolution of marriage (divorce), then the respondent is served, with a copy of the document filed notifying the petitioners' intention to divorce. In Colorado, a fault-free state, one person can choose to divorce another. the other option is to file together as co-petitioners.
In post-decree cases, the process is similar, although the documents would refer to a petition to either modify the terms of the decree or, a petition for a contempt indicating one of the parties did not follow the terms in the decree. The decree is the court decision made on your divorce.
