Same sex divorce, parenting responsibility and adoption

How are same-sex divorces handled?

As of 2014, married Colorado same-sex couples have the same rights and responsibilities under the domestic relations laws of the State as all other couples.

There are some notable unresolved questions such as when/whether common-law marriages originating prior to 2014 will be recognized and how certain parentage issues are handled.

At Foothills Family Law we help you identify and understand key issues in your same-sex divorce and skillfully assist you in handling your case.

What is a Civil Union?
