Property division ruling takes parties' estrangement into account

Divorce may be a somewhat common occurrence in Denver, but this does not mean that there are variations between cases.

Motorcycle accident kills rider who fell under truck's wheels

In Denver, motorcycles and vehicles need to share the road. For the most part, drivers are cautious. In some instances, however, a motorcycle accident is unavoidable. Because motorcyclists are so vulnerable, motorcycle accidents can lead to catastrophic injuries and fatalities. These accidents can happen for a variety of reasons, from carelessness to drunkenness to uncontrollable circumstances such as the weather.

Drinking and driving is still a major problem across the United States, including the Denver area despite the fact that motorists know, or should know, that it is not a good idea to drive after drinking because of the effects alcohol has on a person's body.

Many Jefferson County divorcees find that from the time a divorce is initiated to the time a settlement is reached, they are exceptionally stressed on a regular basis.

Colorado is booming in entrepreneurial spirit

Entrepreneurship is at the heart of capitalism, and Colorado is at the heart of entrepreneurship. Or at least, that is what a recent report published by the Kauffman Foundation suggests. According to the report since last year the state of Colorado has climbed to the fifth-most entrepreneurial state in the nation with a rate of new business creation of 0.38 percent. This is a surprising trend considering the overall decline in the creation of new businesses nationally.

State tries to work with parents who cannot afford child support

Divorced Denver couples with children often incorporate child support guidelines into their divorce settlements.

While celebrities and the wealthy can seem to have it all, they often succumb to the same acrimony in divorce proceedings can plague the average Denver resident.

College wins patent suit against Marvell Technology

When a company invents a new product, the first step is to obtain a patent. While the patent secures the inventing company's right to the property, enforcement of those rights is still required. That is why when a competitor makes, uses or sells a patented product without the patent holder's permission, it is imperative that intellectual property protection is pursued quickly and very aggressively. Colorado readers might find the following article on a recent intellectual property dispute interesting.

Property division is a marathon, not a sprint

While many Denver couples enter into marriage believing they will last forever, the unfortunate reality is that sometimes divorces are necessary.
