CO Rev Stat ยง 13-55-109 (2016) What's This?

In case the court finds that a portion of such property is exempt to such value as is by statute fixed as being exempt but that the property seized is of a greater value and said property so seized cannot be readily divided, the court may order said property to be sold, and out of the first proceeds of said sale the defendant debtor shall be paid the amount, as is provided by statute, of his exemption. The disposal of the balance of the proceeds of said sale shall await the further order of the court. If such property is divisible, the court shall fix the value of each item thereof and shall require the defendant to select therefrom such items as the defendant may choose of an aggregate value not to exceed the amount of his exemptions, and the disposal of the balance of such property shall await the further order of the court. No sale of property seized or levied upon under a writ of attachment shall be ordered sold until after final judgment in said action has been rendered in favor of the plaintiff.
