Marital agreements might help prevent protracted disputes

In 2012, the Uniform Premarital and Marital Agreements Act was proposed in order to ensure that these types of contracts would be accepted by divorce courts equally. Though the intentions behind the Act are beneficial, only two states, including Colorado, have adopted it. Couples residing here may be in a better position when they seek to have marital agreements enforced in court.

Don't set aside financial goal setting during divorce

Moving through the end of a marriage is a busy time, but it is important for spouses to remain focused on their financial goals. The decisions made during a Colorado divorce will shape the financial futures of both spouses for many years to come. Setting solid goals during the divorce process is important. 

Tax bill could change post-divorce financial landscape for many

Colorado residents have likely heard discussions on the currently proposed Republican tax plan. The bill is being sold as a means of cutting taxes and improving the lives of middle-class Americans. In reality, however, there are numerous provisions laid out in the proposal that could create financial turmoil. An example is found in the proposed elimination of the alimony tax deduction, an issue that affects hundreds of thousands of Americans who have gone through a divorce.

What role does a divorce coach play for Colorado families?

For Colorado parents who are planning to end their marriage, maintaining or establishing good communications with their partner is important. When a couple shares one or more children, they remain closely connected, whether they like it or not. Those who are able to work together to place the interests of their children above their own emotional needs should consider working on their communication skills. That's where a divorce coach comes into play.

Understanding the final cost of family law cases

When a Colorado resident enters into a divorce or child custody case, one of the top concerns is how much the process will cost. In some cases, people are surprised at the final tally of expenses, and feel caught off guard with what they are expected to pay for family law legal services. This should never be the case, and spouses are encouraged to take a proactive approach in addressing matters of cost with their attorney.

Child Support Termination

In Colorado, a divorce decree with children or paternity judgment may include a Child Support Order ("CSO") that will direct one parent to pay a sum of money to the other parent. The CSO will state when, how often, and how much a parent is required to pay. This blog will discuss the ways in which a CSO can terminate with and without a Court Order and potential roadblocks with the process.

New law: Judges to consider pet "custody" in divorce

Many Colorado residents are aware that there are no laws in place that require a family court judge to consider issues related to pet "custody" when a couple is divorcing. However, one state has recently undergone a change in that regard, and a new law will require judges to consider the wellbeing of each animal when making decisions concerning pet "custody" during a divorce. That change comes as a welcome relief to pet owners who are concerned about how their beloved pets would be treated in the event of a divorce.

During divorce, consider the full range of childhood expenses

As a Colorado couple moves through the end of a marriage, many different financial matters will come into play. For parents of shared children, child support is one of those topics. Most states have a system for determining the proper level of child support that the non-custodial parent will pay the other. However, many parents fail to address additional expenses that a child will incur as he or she grows up. Talking about those expenses during the larger divorce negotiations can make things easier for both parents and children.

How the family pediatrician can assist during a divorce

When a Colorado family is moving through the end of a marriage, many parents want to do everything in their power to make things easier on their shared children. That can mean different things to different people; some children have a unique set of needs when it comes to their parent's divorce. However, there is someone who can assist, one whom many families overlook when moving through a challenging time: the family pediatrician.
