What to Know About Civil Unions in the State of Colorado

Civil unions are treated as a marriage by Colorado courts. Every law that applies to marriage, applies to civil unions – the only difference is the title. Although civil unions are more common, they’re still not recognized by the federal government. If you and your partner (same sex or opposite sex) aren’t sure how to legally define your relationship, it’s best to discuss your options with an attorney.
