How Can I Get a Quick Divorce in Colorado?

If you want to avoid a lengthy and possibly even contentious divorce case, divorce mediation may be the quick solution you’re looking for. By choosing mediation, you can:

  • Save time: Family and civil courts get backlogged, leading to long waiting times. Plus, the parties have to work around the court’s inflexible timeline and schedule, not to mention the difficult task of coordinating the litigation calendars of multiple attorneys. At Peak Mediation, with after-hours and weekend appointments available to participating parties, the parties remain in control of the timeline of their case.
  • Save money: There’s no doubt about it – working with a mediator and avoiding the litigation cycle of our court system is a lot cheaper than going to trial. You shouldn’t have to pay avoidable legal fees – and you will not have to when you work with Peak Mediation. You are provided with flat fee, fully disclosed rates before we begin.
  • Cooperate with the other party effectively: Mediation typically requires compromise and communication. As such, the parties will have to explain their needs and goals effectively and be willing to work together to reach a solution. With a mediator present, you can stay on track and avoid being sidetracked by unproductive arguments and the understandable emotion of a dispute.
  • Maintain amicable relationships: Many of our clients are divorcing spouses or family members who will benefit from a civil, amicable relationship well after the case is over. It is undeniable that mediation breeds less animosity than litigation and can help parties maintain better relationships as they work together and the understandable emotion of a dispute.

Whether mediation sessions result in a full agreement or no agreement at all (pretty rare!), all participants leave the process with a better understanding of the issues they are facing and a clearer idea of the direction they need to take moving forward.

What Can I Expect at a Divorce Mediation in Colorado Springs?

The first step of the Peak Mediation model is to identify all issues between the parties. We then assist the parties to work toward a positive and unique solution for their circumstance before the dispute escalates or gets out of hand.

Although it can vary by mediator, divorce mediation typically follows this general process:

  • A phone call with the mediation attorney to provide background information about your marriage, your family, and what the issues are.

  • The first meeting—usually in a conference room or office—where the mediator will explain what to expect from the process. For example, whether everyone will be in the same room for the entire mediation or if you'll be meeting separately so that the mediator can listen to your perspective in private.

  • The mediator may also ask you to sign a document agreeing to keep what’s said during the mediation confidential and that you understand that the mediator can't disclose anything if there is a court proceeding later.

How Do I Prepare for a Divorce Mediation?

1. Prepare to communicate clearly - It can be tempting to blame the other party during mediation sessions. Instead, work on expressing how you feel, what you need, and how the other person’s behavior has impacted you.

2. Pay attention to your triggers and how you react to them - Decide how you will react if you are provoked by the other party.

3. If you have children, participate in a court-approved parent education program.

4. Gather important paperwork:

  • Recent pay stubs

  • Past W2s and/or 1099s

  • Certified copy of the marriage certificate

  • A list of your assets (checking, savings, retirement, investment) and a list of your debts

  • A copy of your prenuptial agreement, if applicable

  • Any court filings

  • Any other documents you feel would be helpful for the mediation process

How Long Does Divorce Take With a Mediator?

In general, getting a divorce through mediation is faster than a traditional divorce. The average divorce mediation process can take three to four two-hour sessions over the course of one or two months. More complex cases can take as long as four to six months.
