How to prepare for a divorce

The New Year is a popular time for divorce, and if you and your spouse make the decision to start the process in Colorado you can, and should, start preparing now. Between getting finances in order and preparing emotionally, the more you do ahead of time the easier this already difficult change can be.

The rush to divorce in 2018

Making the decision to get divorced is not generally something people in Colorado do quickly. Working through the process of getting to a final divorce settlement is also not commonly a quick or hurried thing. However, an imminent change to the United States Tax Code might actually be changing that for the near future.

Paying child support after losing a job

Many different challenges may arise for non-custodial parents, from those involving child custody and visitation to problems with a former partner. However, child support issues can be especially complex and they may affect parents in different ways. For example, some parents may be unable to pay child support as a result of financial hardships, while others may purposely withhold payments because they are upset. Sometimes, non-custodial parents simply cannot pay what they owe because of a major change in their lives, such as the loss of a job that they were counting on.

Modifying your spousal support order

Divorce can bring a number of stressors into the lives of those who decide to split up, but these challenges can be mitigated by carefully going over the ins and outs of the situation and knowing which way forward is best. For example, someone who is facing hardships due to losing a job or a health problem may have a hard time paying their spousal support. However, they could be able to have their spousal support order modified, which would help them stay current and avoid penalties. If you are considering this route, it is essential to have a solid understanding of what to expect.

When your ex refuses to pay child support

In a recent blog post, we looked into some of the consequences of unpaid child support as well as some ways that non-custodial parents who find themselves in this position can get caught up on their payments. There are a variety of reasons why some people cannot pay child support, some of which may be out of their control (job loss, etc.). However, they should do all they can to stay caught up, even during these hardships, and they may have different options such as child support modification. Unfortunately, some non-custodial parents do not prioritize staying current on the child support they owe and some simply refuse to pay what they owe.

Back child support and your passport

People often realize that failing to pay child support can lead to many different hardships in life, from those which are financial (tax refund interception, etc.) to being arrested. However, there are a number of other ways that back child support can derail your plans and turn your life on end. For example, you could be unable to obtain a passport if your unpaid child support exceeds a certain amount. It is important to be aware of the different ways in which your life could be upended if you fail to stay caught up on your child support obligations and go over your options in the event that you do fall behind.

Paying child support after a medical emergency

Many people have experienced difficulty paying the child support they owe. Often, people find themselves in this position following the loss of a job or a decrease in their work schedule. However, this is not the only reason parents fall behind on child support. Sometimes, a medical emergency can make it incredibly difficult to stay current on these payments, especially if the health crisis was not anticipated at all. However, it is crucial for a parent who is facing these challenges to know what their options are and stay caught up on their child support obligations.

Financial problems and unpaid child support

In a post that was recently published on our blog, we discussed how those with unpaid child support may not be able to receive a passport in the U.S. However, there are many other angles to consider with respect to child support payments and various consequences that parents may face when they fail to meet these obligations. From a financial standpoint, child support can be overwhelming. Not only do parents struggle to stay current after losing a job or suffering a health crisis, but the financial impact of failing to make payments on time can be devastating and make life even harder.

Applying for a passport with back child support

Falling behind on the child support you owe may complicate your life in all sorts of ways. Many people realize the seriousness of the threat of being taken into custody, sustaining damage to one's reputation and financial penalties such as the interception of a tax refund. However, back child support may create a number of other challenges in your life. For example, you may not be able to obtain a passport in the U.S. if you owe a certain amount of unpaid child support.
