Here is one way to fund a divorce or child custody case

Some Colorado readers are already familiar with the concept of crowdfunding. This is a process by which an individual or group can post details about a project that they are seeking funding for, and other people can contribute as they wish. Various sites are used to create and promote crowdfunding efforts, and some of those sites are beginning to offer divorce as a crowdfunding category.

Crowdfunding has been used to help pay for business ventures, college tuition and even people's vacations or honeymoons. These sites offer people a chance to contribute to a project at any level that they wish and without having to actually contact the person behind the project directly. During a divorce, crowdfunding can be a great way for loved ones or friends to offer help when it is needed most.

Many people may feel that setting up a crowdfunding page is in poor taste. However, there are people who are willing to offer their help when they learn of a divorce or custody battle. Many friends and family are serious when they offer assistance; they are just unsure how to help. Having a crowdfunding account set up can provide a way for those people to show their love and support.

Colorado readers who are interested in learning more about crowdfunding should keep in mind that it is possible to outline exactly what the collected funds will be used for. Some examples include legal fees, moving expenses and even counseling for the spouse or any children within the family. Crowdfunding is a very flexible tool and one that can make many divorce or custody cases easier to manage, at least from the standpoint of finances.
