A DUI could help you get a better settlement offer

In Colorado, like in all U.S. states, it is illegal to drive while under the influence of alcohol or another substance that impairs you. One piece of information that is largely misunderstood is the blood alcohol content limit, which is currently set at .08%.

In Colorado, DUIs are handled a little bit differently than in other states. To start with, an automatic DUI is assumed if a driver's blood alcohol content is .08% or higher. This would be charged as a DUI.

Process of divorce can be challenging to navigate financially

The process of getting divorced can understandably be a trying experience emotionally. However, divorce can also be difficult to navigate financially. Here is a glimpse at how financial matters are generally handled during the divorce process in Colorado.

First, during a divorce proceeding, marital assets are to be divided in an equitable manner in the state of Colorado. Most of the time that means a near 50/50 division. But, if a party contributed a significant portion of the wealth, a judge may determine that it is most equitable for one spouse to receive 60% of assets and the other one to receive 40% of assets if the facts support such a division based on financial circumstances. Also, any assets that either individual brought into the marriage are not subject to division, except for the increase in value and appreciated portion.

Here's how to talk to your children about divorce by age

Getting a divorce isn't always easy on a parent, but when their children start asking why the divorce is happening, things get trickier. Depending on how old your child is, you may not be sure how to address their questions or how much information to give them.

The good news is that there are guides about how to talk to your kids about divorce. Here are some tips based on age.

Certain moves can make divorce a more positive experience

The process of marital dissolution can no doubt take a mental toll on those going through it. However, divorcing individuals in Colorado can take steps to protect their and their families' mental well-being during this life-altering process. Here are a couple of important moves for making a divorce proceeding as positive of an experience as possible.

First, it is important that divorcing individuals avoid allowing the marital breakup process to be all consuming. They may naturally be preoccupied with figuring out how to split assets and debt or how to handle parenting time. However, it is critical that their preoccupation with these divorce matters does not negate room in their lives for other important things, like sleep, exercising and spending quality time with loved ones.

3 effects that can come with a spinal cord injury

Car wrecks, especially those that are serious, can lead to severe injuries. One of the injuries that's possible is damage to the spinal cord. This injury is often associated with paralysis, but there are also other effects that can occur.

Every system in the body can suffer harm in a spinal cord injury. The level of the injury determines how much of the body will have impacts from it. Damage to the spinal cord affects the area of the body lower than the injury itself. Some of the impacts are the result of other damage to the body.

The holiday season is stressful, but does it end marriages?

The holiday season can be a trying time for families, even when they get along. The stress of decorations, gifts, traveling between homes, visiting relatives, having guests in your home and other responsibilities can be overwhelming.

This may be part of the reason why there is an uptick in divorces in the months following the holidays. When unhappy spouses are forced to spend time with families they don't get along with or there is financial stress that overwhelms a marriage, it's easy to see why Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah and other major holidays add so much strain that a marriage may break.

The emotions you feel during divorce might shock you

A person who's going through a divorce will experience many different feelings. Some people say that they feel like they're on a roller coaster of emotions. Being prepared for this topsy-turvy and uncomfortable ride can help you to go through the divorce without as much stress as if you didn't know what to expect.

While there is no certain order in which these feelings come, here are the more common ones that you might face when you walk away from a marriage.

Serious accident leads to 1 injury, 1 arrest for reckless driving

One individual has suffered major injuries in a motor vehicle crash involving three motor vehicles in Colorado. According to authorities, the serious accident was the result of another individual's decision to drive recklessly. Fortunately for the injured party, when a person causes major injuries to another individual due to reckless driving, this is grounds for civil litigation.

According to police, the recent Colorado accident involved a car, a semi, and a sport utility vehicle. Police said the three motor vehicles ended up crashing at the intersection of two streets. One of the passenger vehicle's drivers ended up with serious injuries as a result of the crash. No one else was injured in the wreck.

Serious pileup crashes make Interstate 25 a dangerous place

Multi-vehicle crashes are some of the worst auto tragedies, because there are numerous impacts that occur. One victim could be hit several times, which means that it's more likely that they'll have severe injuries.

A multi-vehicle crash that happened on southbound Interstate 25 at 84th street is a good example of how a multi-vehicle crash can cause significant problems for the victims, traffic and law enforcement.

Tips might help couple to complete divorce more painlessly

Going through a marital dissolution can no doubt be mentally and emotionally challenging. However, it can also be financially difficult to navigate. Fortunately, a couple of tips may help divorcing individuals in Colorado to make the divorce process as painless and quick as possible.

First, it is wise for two divorcing individuals to proceed with the divorce proceeding without trying to get revenge on the other person. If they intentionally inflict pain on each other, this will only make the marital breakup that much more difficult for both of them to bear emotionally. Instead, it is best for divorcing individuals to view their divorce as a business transaction and handle it accordingly.
