Handling child custody arrangements during the holidays

For many divorced parents in Colorado, the first few Christmases following the end of their marriage can be a challenge. Often, both spouses are still working through their own emotional response to the divorce, and also coming to terms with their new roles as co-parents. Many struggle with the adjustment that comes with a new child custody arrangement, and the holidays can bring out the worst of the anxieties attached to missing time with one's children.

Prenups can aid in property division, if properly drafted

Many Colorado couples understand the importance of including a prenuptial agreement within their wedding planning. However, far fewer realize the ease with which these documents can be challenged in court, and the need to take precautions against that during the drafting of a prenup. Without the proper level of care, this essential financial planning tool can be rendered powerless, and couples can find themselves battling over property division in front of a judge.

Helping kids through a new child custody arrangement

When Colorado parents divorce, the care and custody of their shared children is often at the top of their priority list. Once the divorce is final, everyone involved will go through a period of adjustment as they become used to the new child custody arrangement. This can be difficult for both parents and children. However, there are a number of steps that a custodial parent can make to help ease this process for their kids.

How finances can play into child custody determinations

When asked to make a decision concerning the care and custody of a child, family court judges in Colorado are expected to place the best interests of the child above all else. Unfortunately, the process does not always follow lines of fairness and reason. Other matters, such as finances, can have a great deal of influence on the outcome of a child custody dispute.

How to make the best property division choices

Going through a divorce can be one of the most difficult events within an individual's life. Some social scientists believe that the feelings of loss associated with a divorce are even stronger than those that accompany a death. When a partner dies, that loss is final. For those in Colorado who divorce, feelings of loss can linger due to the need to retain contact with one's former partner. For couples who are entering the property division stage of a divorce, it is essential to acknowledge these feelings and place them within the proper context.
