In the not-so-distant past, Colorado residents might have read about studies that claimed to find a connection between lowered levels of health and divorce. That possibility of a possible link between the two can be understandably worrisome, especially for those who are ready to file for divorce. As it turns out, another study revealed that there might not be that much to worry about after all.
By now, the vast majority of Colorado parents understand the significant role that child support has in the overall stability in a child's life. However, unexpected situations can and do arise in which a parent is unable to meet his or her parental responsibilities. When instances like that arise, it is important to petition the court for a modification of the child support order in as timely a manner as possible.
Marrying for a second time can be an exciting and hopeful time for divorcees in Colorado, but caution is still advisable. Many individuals who go on to marry for a second time already have children from a prior relationship, and watching out for their best interests is often the number one priority for remarrying parents. A proper asset valuation and prenuptial agreement can be one of the best ways to address how certain assets should be used or transferred for a child's benefit.
