In most Colorado divorce proceedings, one of the main problems that must be solved is how to split up the marital property. If the couple has a prenuptial agreement, division of property may be predetermined. But a lot of couples did not create a prenup, or one spouse may dispute the document.
This process tends to be more complex the more property there is to divide. High-asset divorce can become contentious when the spouses are unable to negotiate a settlement. In that case, it could be up to the court to determine an equitable division of property.
