Child custody matter examines definition of parenthood

An unusual case is making its way through one state's judicial process, and it could have ramifications for parents in Colorado and elsewhere. The child custody matter centers on how family law courts define what it means to be a "parent," and who should be given equal standing in child custody cases. The parties include a former same-sex couple and the current husband of one of the women.

Tax changes for the year following a Colorado divorce

If the experience of divorce could be summed up in one word, that word might be "change." When a Colorado spouse makes the transition from married to single, virtually everything about his or her life will change. One thing that many people overlook during divorce is the impact that the change will have on their taxes. It is important to plan for those changes, which will differ from one couple to another.

Medical marijuana leads to distressing child custody matter

States continue to grapple with the issue of legalizing marijuana, and the debate is likely to go on for many more years. In the meantime, there are some states that have passed legislation that allows for the use of medical marijuana with a valid prescription. When neighboring states do not permit that activity, legal trouble can result. Such is the case in an unusual child custody matter that has ties to Colorado.

Be willing to seek professional financial help during divorce

A Colorado divorce can be a complicated matter, and very few people are trained to know the ins and outs of the legal and financial side of divorce. It would be prudent to call a plumber to repair a broken water main or seek the advice of a doctor to address chest pain. In the same way, many spouses need to call in a financial expert who focuses on divorce to assist with a smooth transition between going from married to single.
