Your intended asks for a prenup. Is that bad?

You may feel like many others in Colorado when news breaks of a celebrity divorce. While the divorce itself may not be shocking, the revelation that the couple had not signed a prenuptial agreement often causes heads to shake, especially if one or both celebrities has gone through costly divorces before.

Your co-parenting efforts make a difference

You may remember those Octobers when you and your family had settled into a solid routine of work, school and your kids' activities. At some point in the day, you may have shared your upcoming schedules, or perhaps you had a common calendar displayed where everyone could see. Perhaps you shouted reminders to each other over the sound of the kids, the TV and the dog barking. Now that you are facing divorce, you may have concerns about what that shared parenting will look like.

Common law solutions for not-so-common couples

It is always painful to end a relationship, whether the parties were officially married or not. For some Colorado couples, a marriage certificate is never necessary to have a long-term, fulfilling relationship. When these relationships end, sometimes called common law marriages, it may still be necessary to seek legal guidance.

Do you have something in common with these celebrities?

Do you know that Steven Seagal, Mel Gibson, Charlie Sheen and Madonna all have something in common? They are among many other celebrities who have faced domestic violence charges. In fact, Charlie Sheen pleaded guilty, not once but twice, to such charges but has apparently been out of the legal limelight for approximately seven years now. If you're going through a divorce in Colorado where your former spouse is flailing accusations against you concerning substance abuse or domestic violence issues, then you too have something in common with these celebrities.

Colorado residents may share celebrities' worries in divorce

Open a tabloid or surf the internet and you're sure to have no trouble finding current news regarding celebrity divorces. One can only imagine how stressful it would be to have your family law problems aired in public. If you're currently navigating the divorce process in Colorado, you may be able to relate to some of the common worries celebrities seem to have when they decide to call it quits from their marriages.

What to expect at your first child custody hearing

Ideally, you and your spouse have come to a mutual agreement concerning the custody of your children. Doing so outside the courtroom may set a precedent for future negotiations. Whether you like it or not, you and your ex will be doing a lot of negotiating as your children grow and their lives and interests change and become more independent.

How to protect your business during a divorce

Divorce is a complicated process, one that will affect almost every area of your life, and your small business may not be an exception. If you are facing a divorce, you naturally have concerns about how this process will affect the Colorado business that you worked so hard to build and maintain.

Custody modification may be warranted after interference

As a Colorado parent, you likely often feel immense joy at having your children in your life. Of course, every aspect of your arrangement may not seem entirely perfect, especially if you face custody issues with your children's other parent. Finding the best manner in which to handle custody disputes may not always come easy, and you could potentially end up in a more difficult situation before your circumstances get better.

A high-asset divorce and fighting to find hidden assets

A divorce involving significant assets and money is complex, but it is particularly difficult when one party chooses to take a dishonest approach and hide assets. Full disclosure of all marital assets is crucial to a fair and equitable property settlement, and that is impossible when all assets are not properly valued and evaluated.

Watch your Facebook posts as you unfriend your spouse

It may be easier to count the people who don't have a Facebook account than those who do these days. The popularity of social media sites such as this one has risen to a point where people gladly share their lives with their friends and family (both near and far) via the internet. People share their highs and their lows on Facebook, and their friends see it all.
