How to divide a health savings account during a divorce

Property division is a primary focus for most divorcing spouses in Colorado, and for good reason. The outcome of the division of marital wealth will shape the financial lives of both parties for many years to come. That is why it is so important to account for all asset types during the early stages of a divorce. Failing to recognize or account for assets could mean that the value of those assets is lost. A prime example lies in health savings accounts, (HSAs) which are very often left out of the property division discussion.

Child custody rights not guaranteed for same-sex couples

Now that the Supreme Court has settled the issue of same-sex marriage, many couples have settled into a happy state of married life. For some, adding to their family was a priority, and artificial insemination is a popular option to meet that goal. Unfortunately, same-sex parents in Colorado and elsewhere still face legal challenges when it comes to securing a parental link with their children. That has resulted in child custody issues and other legal matters that seek to extend the same parental rights to same-sex parents that are given to heterosexual couples.

Supreme Court rules on military divorce retirement matters

Making the decision to end a marriage is a big step and one that no Colorado resident takes lightly. Among the more pressing concerns that arise in a military divorce is the division of retirement benefits. In a case that recently went before the United States Supreme Court, the matter of how those benefits can and cannot be divided became a central focus. The result could lead to additional cases being reopened across the nation.

Could "nesting" be the next big child custody trend?

For Colorado parents who are divorcing and looking through their custody options, there are a number of different choices to evaluate and potential avenues to pursue. Those options are a good thing, as families have the ability to find a child custody solution that meets their particular set of needs. There are a number of creative options that are available, including a practice that has come to be known as "nesting."

Research supports shared child custody approach

Faced with the need to divide parenting time and responsibilities, many Colorado parents are unsure where to begin. No loving parent wants to be separated from his or her child for any period of time, much less to assume the role of part-time parent. Fortunately, there are a number of different options available for parents who are willing to work toward a solution that is in the best interests of all parties. Shared child custody is one of those options and is an approach that is supported by a significant body of research.
