Under Colorado law, a court is to divide marital property equitably. It is important to understand the factors a court may consider when determining what is equitable. Equitable does not necessarily mean equal. We carefully analyze and advise our clients on property division issues including skilled advocacy regarding special issues like business valuations, stock options, retirement accounts and complex investments.
In Colorado, most property acquired during the marriage is marital property that is divided during the divorce process. Property acquired during the marriage by one party through gift or inheritance is not marital property to be divided, however any increase in value to such property during the marriage is marital and is part of the property division. Retirement balances accumulated during the marriage are marital property that is figured into the property division.
