Divorce is more than just the end of a legal marriage arrangement. It's a life-altering event with consequences that ripple across all areas of life.
Although divorcing couples may want to minimize courtroom drama, the subject of child custody might be a sticking point. An attorney that focuses on divorce and child custody might have strategies for avoiding this deadlock.
Couples who are working through divorce in Colorado and who also have 401(k) accounts may be surprised to learn that their spouses may be entitled to a percentage of the account balance. The portion of 401(k) accounts that accrued during the marriage are considered to be marital property subject to equitable property division in divorce proceedings.
Some Colorado grandparents may have concerns about whether they will be allowed to visit their grandchildren. All states have statutes that enable the court to hear petitions concerning this issue. The court's decision is based on what is best for the child as well as the rights of a parent to make a decision about how their child should be raised.
