Do you cohabit with another person you consider your husband or wife, even though you aren’t legally married? If the other party also considers you to be his or her spouse, you are in a common-law marriage. Common-law marriages are legally recognized, and you can obtain a divorce if you’re ready for the relationship to end. However, the divorce process isn’t nearly as straightforward since you don’t have legal marriage documents.
Our Golden, CO, common-law marriage lawyer is experienced in these relationships. We can gather evidence to prove the marriage and then negotiate or litigate the divorce. We can also help you determine if you’re eligible for child support, alimony, and more. Contact us for a free consultation today.
Common-law marriage has been legal in Colorado since 1877, and the requirements are fundamental. Your relationship is recognized as a common-law marriage if both parties:
“very professional and worth every penny,” “incredibly professional and delivered documents in a timely manner,” “highly recommend working with Marie and her team,” “attentive, professional, and extremely competent in dealing with my unique situation,” “outstanding experience,” “very professional and looked for out of the box ways to help me with my case,” “professional, upbeat, responsible, and a pleasure to work,” “always felt she had my best interest at heart,” “very thorough and considerate of my needs, and listened very well to represent me,” “highly recommend and the firm got the work done in a timely fashion,” “kind, reasonable, and a pleasure to work with,”, “Marie is a blessing,” “ very responsive and is always there when I need her most,”
