For people in Colorado whose marriage has run its course, with a decision that it is preferable to part ways, a best-case scenario is that they will agree on most or all issues related to the marriage, have amicable negotiations for child support, child custody, spousal support and property division, and move on. The reason this is referred to as a "best" case scenario in a mostly negative situation is that it happens so infrequently. Oftentimes, there is contentious disagreement over some or all issues in the marriage. This can include children, property, division of assets, asset distribution and more. Understanding the components of a divorce proceeding can be key for adequate preparation and be beneficial as the case proceeds.
