Different ways divorce can affect your career

The end of marriage can affect a person’s life in many ways, from their ability to see their children to the amount of money they are required to provide their former spouse with. However, it can have an impact on other aspects of life as well, such as various career-related issues. Sometimes, people even blame their partner’s job for the reason divorce became necessary, such as claims that the person was a workaholic. As a result, it is helpful to look at some ways that the divorce process could affect your career.

Often, people focus on the negative aspects of divorce. However, ending a toxic marriage can be helpful in various ways, including one’s career. For example, moving on from a marriage that was not working out might allow a business owner or employee to focus on their responsibilities better and have more time to pursue their career path. Moreover, some people might have an easier time relocating, which can be very helpful from a career standpoint, and allow people to benefit from lower levels of stress. On the other hand, dealing with courtroom issues can leave you with less time and potentially interfere with work, so you should try to simplify the divorce process as much as you can.

Would arbitration or mediation help with your custody issues?

Some of the most rewarding, challenging and emotionally exhausting decisions you may ever make involve your children. At times, it can seem as though every decision could have lasting effects on their lives. That can be especially true if you and the other parent decide to end your relationship.

Even if your relationship with your ex isn't ideal at this point, heading to court may not be the best option for either of you or your children. It may be to your advantage to research alternative methods of dispute resolution such as arbitration and mediation to see if one of them provides you with a viable option to either retain or build a more amicable relationship with your ex in order to continue to be there for your children.

How many pedestrians die in accidents per year?

Pedestrian accidents are a major problem in Colorado and across the entire country. Whether someone is trying to cross the road while walking their dog or decides to get some exercise or walk to work, there are many benefits that come with walking and reasons why people decide to walk. Sadly, some of them are struck by a vehicle and their entire life changes in an instant. Sometimes, these accidents prove fatal and it is important to be aware of just how many lives are claimed each year.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states that 4,735 pedestrians lost their lives in accidents during 2013. Not only did these pedestrian accidents claim thousands of lives, but they left far more people injured over the course of the same year (66,000, according to estimates). Between 2004 and 2013, more than 4,000 pedestrians passed away in accidents each year, accounting for anywhere from 11 percent to 14 percent of all traffic fatalities each year. Clearly, pedestrian accidents are a major problem and the prevalence of these fatal accidents should not be overlooked by drivers or those who choose to walk.

Auto accidents and the weekend

Car accidents can happen at any time, but there are certain days and times of day when an accident might be more likely. For example, there may be occasionally be more drunk drivers on the road on Friday nights, since people do not have to wake up for work the next morning and are celebrating the arrival of the weekend. Our law firm believes it is essential for drivers to be cautious at all times, but it is a good idea to be particularly mindful at certain times of day and night.

Aside from drunk drivers getting behind the wheel at night, there are other potential hazards that can cause problems during the weekend. For example, a celebration may be taking place, such as a parade or festival, which can increase the chances of a wreck. With people coming in from out of town and busy roads, these celebrations can make the roads more hectic and it is important to be vigilant. Unfortunately, people will keep driving while intoxicated on Friday nights, Saturday nights, and other times. If you are hit by a negligent driver, or if your family member is trying to piece their lives together in the aftermath of a collision, it is vital to take a careful look at the details involved and find out the best direction forward.

What to do with your business after a divorce

When you and your spouse started your business together, you may never have imagined that a divorce would be the factor threatening the end of your business. If you are divorcing, your business partnership may also be coming to an end.

What are your options regarding your business?

Is your New Year’s resolution to divorce?

The start of a new year always brings a spike in the number of divorce cases across the country. Statistics prove that at least one in every five married couples is considering divorce immediately after the festive season.

If your marriage is ending, there are some things you can do to ensure that the divorce doesn't bring you too much trauma. Taking the right steps up-front can make the entire separation a more peaceful, drama-free, and fair process. Below are some tips to help you prepare if you find yourself among those that will divorce in 2018.

Looking over some divorce-related myths

If you are thinking about whether the time has come for you to end your marriage, or you and your spouse have already decided that it is not working out, you could have a variety of questions about divorce. Finding answers can help clear up confusion, but our law firm also realizes that some people believe various myths related to the divorce process. In order to have a better understanding of potential outcomes and your rights, it might be helpful for you to look at some of these myths.

Sometimes, people assume that a divorce will always require going to court. However, some couples are able to stay out of the courtroom altogether by turning to a mediator, for example. Another myth involves custody and visitation, with fathers assuming that they will have little time to spend with their children and there is nothing they can do about it. However, this is certainly not true in every case and many fathers have been able to secure favorable custody and visitation rights. Sometimes, people think that because their spouse no longer lives in the home, they will not have any right to the home when property is divided, but this is not necessarily true either.

How many deadly crashes involve large trucks?

Motor vehicle collisions happen in all sorts of ways and the details vary from one accident to the next. Sometimes, a drunk driver causes a crash, but many other factors can lead to a wreck, such as fatigue and ice on the roads. Unfortunately, many happen to involve a large truck or a bus and these collisions are especially devastating in many cases. It can take large truck drivers much longer to slow down, which can greatly increase the odds of someone passing away or suffering an injury. Moreover, we know that many people in Broomfield and other parts of Colorado have been killed or injured because of the massive size of these trucks.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration reports that 4,311 large trucks were involved in a fatal accident during 2015. In comparison to 2014, this amounts to an eight percent increase, which shows that even as safety awareness campaigns and other attempts to prevent accidents have been put in place, deadly truck accidents remain a serious problem. On roads all across the state of Colorado, drivers should stay vigilant and understand some of the factors that can increase the likelihood of an accident, such as truck driver fatigue and the no-zones or blind spots of large trucks.

Explaining a custody arrangement with your child

As the parent of a child, a plethora of challenges may arise, regardless of their age. Even if you have children who are older, your divorce could affect them emotionally and you may need to explain what is happening and how life will change. With younger children, this can be even more difficult and it is vital to set aside enough time to go over any worries they may have, especially with regard to a custody arrangement.

Custody rulings could affect you and your child in a number of ways, whether you have been granted sole custody, will be sharing custody of your child, or your child’s other parent was given full custody. For example, if you have sole custody, you may need to talk about different topics related to your divorce and their relationship with their other parent. On the other hand, you may be a non-custodial parent who will be unable to spend as much time with your child as you used to, in which case you may want to reassure them that you still want the best for them and love them.

Downed power lines and auto accidents

During the winter months, strong storms can bring down power lines, which presents a number of risks. Aside from the risk of electrical shock, this hazard can also increase the chances of a motor vehicle accident. If you need to drive during strong winds or blizzard conditions, it is important for you to be mindful of the different risks that may be present on the road.

When a fallen power line is on the road, a driver may swerve out of their lane as they try to dodge the downed line. Unfortunately, this could cause them to collide with another vehicle or find themselves in a single-car crash. Moreover, drivers may become distracted or veer into oncoming traffic when lines are hanging low or a tree branch has fallen onto the road.
