A newly released research project conducted by Pew Research looks at the ways that fatherhood has changed over the last 50 years. The findings suggest that today's dads are far more involved in childrearing duties than fathers were in decades past. In fact, on average, in 2011 a father typically spent seven hours each week caring for their children, while mothers spent 14. In 1965, fathers only cared for their kids around 2 and a half hours per week, with mothers covering around 10 hours of care. Not only are Colorado dads taking on more responsibilities toward their children, many are also seeking broader child custody rights in the event of a divorce.

However, many couples postpone filing for divorce over concerns about the cost associated with the end of their marriage. A wide range of issues can affect the ultimate cost of a divorce, but the manner in which a couple is able to address property division is one factor that can significantly impact the eventual bottom line.
