Should separate property be addressed in legal separation?

It is not uncommon for couples who experience marital problems to choose to spend time apart to evaluate their feelings rather than to rush into a divorce. However, one spouse moving out and living apart does not make a separation legal, and separate property will not be protected. There are legal requirements, and couples may want to draw up a separation agreement to present to the Colorado court for signature and legalizing the separation.

Protecting yourself during and after divorce

When two lives have been intertwined in a marriage for several years, separating the smaller details of those lives can often prove to be difficult. While it would be understandable to assume that what is outlined in a divorce settlement is reflected in the affected areas of one's life, this is unfortunately not always the case. For those in Colorado pursuing a divorce, there are some key financial details to keep in mind.

Some New Year's resolutions include new diets and divorce

Now that the holiday decorations are back in storage and people in Colorado are getting back into the swing of work and school, an increasing number of couples are deciding that the time is right to bring their marriage to a close. January is a particularly popular month to file for divorce, and many do so shortly after the New Year has begun. It is not even that uncommon to hear January referred to as Divorce Month. 

Parental responsibilities for child support are not always met

Raising a child may be anything but inexpensive. With the cost of new shoes, extracurricular activity and the ever-growing cost of higher education, some Colorado parents may be feeling the pinch in their wallets. Single or divorced parents may be even more familiar with that struggle when an ex shrugs off his or her parental responsibilities.

The divorce rate for same-sex couples is lower, study says

Could sexual orientation play a role in the overall success of a marriage? A new study indicated that this may be so. The Williams Institute's most recent findings indicated that same-sex couples tend to divorce less than their straight counterparts.
