Mediation and arbitration can help settle a Colorado divorce

When mentioning the word "divorce" in Colorado, the first thought that comes to most minds is that of a protracted court battle with the participants in dispute about every issue large and small. In some cases, this is the reality and it makes no sense to suggest options other than going to court. In others, however, the issues that precipitated the divorce are not contentious and the couple is able to maintain a civil if not outright friendly relationship as they seek to resolve their differences and end the marriage.

Shared custody is usually the standard in Colorado divorces

Divorce is often an experience fraught with difficult emotions and uncertainty about the future. This is true for the couple divorcing, as well as for any children in the family. Couples considering divorce will worry about how it may impact their lives, as well as the well-being of their children.

Divorce decisions impacted by student loan obligations

For couples in Colorado and across the nation, there are many catalysts to a divorce. One of the most prominent is finances. Some of these issues start early in the marriage and take time to manifest themselves. While it might not be labeled a "college divorce" if the financial problems begin due to college-related debt, it can still be an issue later when matters come to a head and the couple decides to part ways. Recent information has come to light as to how extensive the problem of student debt is when it comes to divorce.

What if the visitation schedule must be changed due to a crisis?

When there is a child custody arrangement between parents in Colorado, the goal is to have both parents spend time with the child and ensure the child's best interests as the top priority. Part of the child's best interests being focused upon includes having a safe and nurturing environment. Often, parents will experience problems in their lives that leave the other parent concerned for the child's well-being should the visitation schedule be followed as normal. Knowing when and how there can be an immediate change to parenting time because of a crisis is imperative for both parents.

Helping you resolve child support issues in a Colorado divorce

As parents are preparing for the birth of a child, it can be apparent that a baby will require a lot of things. Very quickly, it is obvious that a baby costs a lot to care for, and as that baby grows, will continue to require care and financial support. So when parents in Colorado and elsewhere decide to part ways, the requirement to provide financial support does not end. And in order to ensure a noncustodial parent continues this obligation, it is often necessary to establish a child support order.

Changes to tax code and alimony deduction could impact divorce

Coloradans who are considering divorce must think about more than the basic issues that led to the decision to part ways with a spouse. The sudden concern about timing stems from changes to the tax code that could have an impact on the financial situations of those who are divorcing and will pay or receive alimony. Understanding these aspects is imperative to a divorce case and the determination of whether to file immediately.
