colorado springs child support lawyer 3We all know how quickly a relationship can deteriorate when one person is being unfaithful, which explains why infidelity is the most direct cause of divorce. When one spouse discovers that the other has been unfaithful, it can be incredibly difficult for the marriage to survive. In many cases, the cheated-upon spouse will head directly to a divorce attorney and seek a legal separation or divorce. As tempting as it may be to seek revenge by asking the courts to punish the cheater in some way, does the court even care about infidelity?

termination parental rightsWhen you first start considering divorce, it’s easy to think it’s all about support, custody and division of assets. Few people actually think about how they will handle the emotional fallout that comes from a changing family landscape, angry in-laws, and damaged relationships. Financial and legal issues may be somewhat predictable; and if not a Colorado family lawyer can help make sense of them. However, your feelings at the end of a relationship won’t be so clear cut. The overpowering emotions that come up in a divorce usually linger long after the final divorce decree arrives in your mailbox.

best divorce lawyersAfter a couple is officially “divorced” a final divorce decree is issued by the state. This decree is actually made up of a set of legally binding “orders” that define the terms of the divorce, and failure to abide by them could result in one spouse taking enforcement actions against the other. In other words, as one soon learns, many of the terms of the final decree are indeed anything but “final.” It is actually quite common for one party or another to request a formal modification to the certain terms, such as spousal support, child custody, or visitation.

grandparents-rights-divorce-coloradoThere’s no doubt that grandparents play an increasingly important role in the life of a child. In fact, one recent study from the University of Chicago and the National Institute on Aging says that some 60 percent of grandparents served as caregivers to grandchildren over a ten year period.

It’s no wonder that the number of involved grandparents would make them want to fight for visitation rights after their children get divorced.

As a grandparent, you should know your rights for visitation and custody.

property dividedLooking back at the decisions they made upon separation, many divorced couples regret spending too little time on property division.  Sometimes the pressure to split their assets quickly can cause divorcing parties to make impulsive decisions, many of which could cost them thousands of dollars down the road.

bankruptcy divorce 2First marriages usually start out before a couple has had a chance to accumulate debt, but that is not always the case. Some individuals look at marriage as a way to "solve" their debt issues because now they will have two incomes instead of one. If this sounds like you and you are getting married soon, it may be beneficial to delay the wedding until you have paid off all your debt. Marriage is challenging enough on its own without the added stress of entering it with mountains of debt.
