In addition, almost all court districts have a "self help" office that can give you forms and other help that is not legal advice. Go to the Colorado State Courts website and look up your court district and then call the court to find out about the free resources available in your judicial district.

Divorce Property and Debt Division Spreadsheet
Telephone: N/A

I created a template spreadsheet for my clients and I to use in a divorce case. In a divorce case, this spreadsheet is useful both during negotiations and during the final "permanent orders" hearing in your case. This spreadsheet let's you see, at a glance, the "big picture" of the total amount of property and debt each party will receive at the time of divorce. You can change an item in the spreadsheet and instantly see what that particular change to the allocation of property and debts does to your "bottom line". Even if you don't settle the case, the judge will almost certainly want to see this spreadsheet on the day of the permanent orders hearing for your case.

Note: The spreadsheet is supplied in a .ZIP file. Download the file to your computer and then extract the spreadsheet from the .ZIP file.
