Referred to in Colorado as Declaration of Invalidity of Marriage, an annulment is an area in divorce and family law that rarely occurs and is often misunderstood.
Annulment is appropriate in circumstances when the marriage was legally invalid because of reasons such as lack of ability to consent, inability to consummate the marriage, underage of one of the parties (without consent of a parent, guardian or the court), fraud, duress, marriage in jest, or polygamy.
When it comes to dividing property or determining parenting time, however, there is no practical difference between an annulment and a dissolution of marriage in Colorado. Mary can adeptly help you determine whether a divorce or an annulment would be the most appropriate route.

Our firm can help you identify and value marital assets precisely, thus giving you the support you require in order to know what property you’re entitled to and pursue accurate division. We can ideally help you comprehend the law as well as your options in regards to marital assets and debt.
Child support is an important, and often contentious issue. Although Colorado statute lays out factors and a specific formula for calculating child support, it’s important that you understand what kinds of income will be considered “income” in child support computations, the kinds of payments that can be deducted from child support, and extraneous factors that go into child support calculations.
Mary Daugherty can help and give advice about child support.
Referred to in Colorado as spousal maintenance or spousal support, the courts have tremendous discretion when it comes to calculating maintenance.
Temporary maintenance is sometimes required to be paid from one spouse to the other a divorce. At the final orders hearing, maintenance can also be awarded based on the incomes of the parties, needs of a spouse, factors set out in Colorado Statute, and the guidelines set forth in Colorado Statute.

No-fault divorce is much more common these days and certainly legal in Colorado. No reason needs to be given in regard to the dissolution of a marriage. All a couple must do is agree that a marriage is broken and over. “Irretrievably broken” is the technical term, and it is the way a no-fault divorce is handled in Colorado these days.
