When a spouse is uncooperative and refuses to participate in the divorce process, a legal tool called a default judgment divorce may help end a marriage.
Sometimes a spouse is unwilling to participate in the divorce process. Fortunately, Colorado doesn’t require the approval of both spouses to obtain a divorce. Our state enjoys the benefit of a no-fault judgment, meaning it isn’t necessary to prove the guilt of one party to obtain a divorce.
The process of getting a default judgment can be straight forward. With a few simple steps, the courts will grant a dissolution of marriage (what Colorado calls a divorce) within a couple of months.
