Couple receive court extension for divorce negotiations

The moment when Colorado spouses decide to end their marriage is often one that is heavily loaded. It may have taken a long time to come to the realization, and even longer to bring it up. Or, perhaps, it came out suddenly, taking partners by surprise in the heat of the moment. No matter how they came to the decision to get a divorce, the process itself takes some time -- and that is not always a bad thing.

What can divorce do (and not do) for Colorado couples? (Part 2)

Previously on our blog, we took a look at issues, like these which the divorce process generally does a good job of helping Colorado Springs couples resolve as they go their separate ways. However, it is important to have realistic expectations going into a divorce, and to understand what a divorce cannot do.

What can divorce do (and not do) for Colorado couples? (Part 1)

The end of a marriage is a time of change, often one of the most significant changes in the lives of El Paso County couples. Typically, many difficult and unpleasant steps will have to be taken to get through the process. It can be frightening, as well, to trade one's well-known and established life -- no matter how unhappy -- for the unknown of what life will be like after a divorce.

Colorado Supreme Court considers frozen embryos in divorce case

The end of a marriage often brings with it some challenging questions to resolve: who gets which assets; how child custody is determined; how much child support and alimony will be paid. However, sometimes divorcing Colorado Springs couples may find themselves in territory where the law itself is unclear, thanks in part to possibilities only recently realized by cutting-edge technology and science.

How is spousal maintenance determined in Colorado?

The stress of divorce, especially when it creates a large economic disparity between the parties, can be considerable. A stay-at-home parent with few marketable job skills, for instance, would be in a less favorable economic position than a spouse who was the sole earner in the family. Alimony -- or as it is known in Colorado, "spousal maintenance" -- can help to balance out the financial imbalances that occur as a result of divorce.

Potential to abuse technology in a divorce

The rate at which Colorado couples find themselves at the end of a marriage seems only to rise as the years pass. However, divorce today is not what it used to be. As technology has permeated so many aspects of our lives, it has also become a factor in many divorces -- and not necessarily in a good way.

Supporting Colorado Springs clients in alimony matters

After last week's post on our Colorado Springs family law blog, readers may be left feeling like much of what they thought they know about alimony is wrong. The truth is that alimony can be a nuanced issue for a couple to deal with during a divorce, which is why many will turn to a family law professional for support.

How does a protective order work in a divorce?

As discussed previously, Colorado Springs couples considering ending their marriage have options if they are willing and able to work together towards a resolution of all the issues involved. But that is not the reality for many in a divorce. In fact, sometimes it becomes necessary for one spouse to take legal measures to protect him or herself -- or the children -- from the other spouse. What can Colorado Springs residents do with a protective order in such a situation?

Divorce options can save our clients time, money, heartache

Last week on our Colorado Springs family law blog, we ended our discussion of gray divorce by noting that these couples may not need to go through the traditional process of a litigated divorce. When spouses generally agree that a marriage is over and they are ready to go their separate ways -- and are able to work together honestly and openly towards that end -- Mary Kay Kramer, P.C. is able to help with alternatives tailored to their needs.
