Frequently Asked Fort Collins Divorce Questions

How long do I have to live in Fort Collins before I can file for divorce?

Fort Collins does not have a specific residency requirement, but it is subject to a 90-day state of Colorado residency requirement.

Is there a mandatory waiting period in Fort Collins before a divorce can be granted? How long will a divorce take?

The mandatory waiting period is 90 days. Colorado rules do not allow any activity on the case to take place, other than the exchanging of financial information and the Initial Status Conference, for the first 40 days after the Petition is filed. It would probably take a minimum of 2-5 months to get even the least complex divorces finalized and at least 6-12 months to finalize complex divorces. Some cases take well over a year if there are contested child custody issues, substantial amounts of property to divide, and other such issues.

How can I serve my spouse in Fort Collins? If attempts to serve do not work, can I serve by publication?

You would serve your spouse by utilizing a private process server or a sheriff/constable. You can serve by publication by filing a motion with the court that meets certain requirements, including attaching affidavits or other evidence to substantiate what efforts you made to personally serve your spouse and obtaining a court order to allow you to serve the other party by publication. In Fort Collins, the notice would typically be published in the Denver Post because it’s a national publication that would (theoretically) provide notice to persons both in and outside of the state of Colorado.

What are the specific forms I will need to file for a divorce in Fort Collins?

In Fort Collins, you have to file a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage, a Case Information Sheet, and a Summons to begin a divorce action and you have to serve all of them on the other party.
