Frequently Asked Questions


Can a Divorce Settlement be Reopened in Colorado?

A divorce in Colorado can be reopened within five years of the decree entering, provided that there was a material misrepresentation of assets or there was some sort of fraud. The statute is 16.2 e10 and it gives a five year period of looking back at material information that was withheld intentionally, or unintentionally. If you find that information within five years of the decree entering, you can go back to court, reopen it, and have a reallocation of assets, debts, and sometimes financial obligations.
