A new school year can be exciting for kids in Colorado as they buy new supplies, plan to reunite with friends and sign up for new activities. This is also a good time for divorced parents to review their parenting plan and make changes according to everyone's new schedules.
The prospect of divorce is always a challenging concept and each family has a unique experience. Divorcing spouses with teenage children will likely face distinct challenges because their children are old enough to understand what is happening to their family. This may bring about anger and resentment, so it is vital that you properly address the subject with them.
Having a child in Colorado outside of wedlock may make some parentage issues complicated. If you have a child while unmarried or if your husband is not your baby's natural father, you may want to go through the steps to establish legal paternity. While establishing paternity does not by itself provide you with child support, it may make it easier for a court to order support sometime in the future. There are also several other potential benefits to establishing paternity.

Couples in Colorado who are going through rough times may think the only option is divorce.

The divorce process can be tough for many different reasons, from legal matters which involve kids (custody disputes, child support, etc.) to the potential career impact of ending a marriage. For some people, divorce can be an especially difficult process, especially when one's former partner is very bitter and wants to shatter the life of their ex. For example, someone may falsely accuse their former spouse of domestic violence, and there are numerous reasons why this occurs. Sometimes, people want to gain an advantage in a custody dispute by falsely accusing their ex of this offense, while others may simply want to destroy their reputation and inflict suffering.
When you choose to have children with your spouse, you probably don't think about what will happen if you eventually end your marriage. Most couples conceive their children when they still foresee spending the rest of their life with their spouse.
For too many people, co-parenting tends to be fraught with frustration and communication breakdowns. For those who are annoyed the other parent isn't responding to your texts or calls, that lack of cooperation probably highlights the reason you are not together. Stuff like that can also be a huge emotional trigger.

Research tends to point to shortened academic careers for children in divorced families. According to a new study, wealth does not appear to provide a complete counterbalance. Instead, UCLA researchers suggest it may be that financially stable families suffer disproportional academic setbacks.
