Q&A: What’s the best way for my spouse and me to tackle property division? Colorado Family Law Attorney Marlana Caruso Answers

What’s the best way for my spouse and me to tackle property division?

The best way to tackle property division is first to identify what property there is. Don’t concentrate on who holds the title, because in Colorado, title is largely relevant with regards to marital interest. So think of that this way – if it was acquired during the marriage, the default position is that its marital property, and it is subject to division. There are exceptions to that rule, of course, but that’s your starting basis. I find it helpful if you need to organize your thoughts and organized the amount of property that you do have, write it down. Whether that’s a word document or an Excel sheet, go room by room and identify the big-ticket items. Don’t spend time identifying every single pot pan that you have, but have it written down, so that way it’s easier to work with in regards to who gets what or possible discussions on who may want to take responsibility for that property.
