Show Notes

Colorado is defined as a "no fault" state when it comes to divorce. That basically means that the court does not assign fault to either party throughout the proceedings, even if there is an affair or other bad behavior. Can an attorney still use fault to get what their client wants in a divorce?

This week Ryan Kalamaya and Joe Maher discuss why fault matters in a divorce and how you can productively use fault in a divorce proceeding in Colorado.
