How Do You File for Divorce in Colorado?

In Colorado you file for divorce by creating a petition and a summons. The petition and the case information sheet are filed with the court in the jurisdiction in which you and your spouse reside, and then the petition and the summons are also served on the other party. As soon as service is effectuated, then you are the proud owner of a divorce in Colorado. From there the court takes over and you get case management orders and other organizational pieces. But that’s how it starts: filing a petition, summons, and case information sheet.
