What Is A No-Fault State?

When it comes to divorce, the Colorado Legal Group explains that in a 'No-Fault' state, the court system will not factor in any misconduct committed by either spouse when granting the divorce, dividing property, or awarding support. You can not oppose your partner's pleading for a divorce.

Getting Divorced in Colorado

Colorado was one of eleven states that made a pathway to divorce easier by adopting a 'no-fault' divorce standard in the early 1970s. Since then, the only legal basis for divorce in Colorado is the irretrievable breakdown of the marriage. This is also known as irreconcilable differences. It's that simple. No need to know who did what. Once one spouse says the marriage is irretrievable, it is. This is explained in the Colorado Revised Statues C.R.S. 14-10-106(1)(a)(II).

Old Legal Grounds for Divorce in Colorado

Colorado used to recognize grounds for divorce to include adultery, physical or mental abuse, or even desertion. In the past, you could defend against divorce by proving your partner was guilty of 'condonation, insanity, or collusion.' This was also banned after 1972.
