Ways to trim divorce expenses

Divorce can quickly become one of the most expensive transactions of a Colorado resident's life. While many divorce cases involve two people who dispute every item of the future divorce decree, individuals can take steps to minimize expenses related to divorce so that both spouses can walk away with less financial trauma.

New alimony laws in Colorado

A new law concerning alimony will go into effect in Colorado on Jan. 1. The new legislation has been called groundbreaking by the director of client development for the Harris Law Firm. She stated that for the first time Colorado will have a formula for determining maintenance. The new maintenance formulas are supposed to be designed to provide more consistency in maintenance orders. They are also supposed to limit or standardize spousal maintenance payments.

Is it part of the divorce or domestic violence?

Divorce can be ugly, but when does the behavior of one of the parties cross the line into domestic violence? The abuses that are considered to be domestic violence are broken bones and bruises, but it can also be less obvious when it takes the form of control and power issues. One Longmont woman knows the story of how emotions can escalate during a divorce.

Cheating and divorce

When Colorado residents discover that their spouse has cheated on them, it is not uncommon for this revelation to lead to divorce. However, even though a couple may decide to end their marriage due to infidelity, whether someone cheated or not usually has no bearing on the divorce process from a legal standpoint. Since Colorado is a no-fault divorce state, the court does not care why a marriage is ending, only that a divorce is taking place.

Same-sex divorce can be a legal morass

Few couples get married with the thought that at some point their marriage will end. Yet while it is accepted that a heterosexual couple should have the right to split up, the path to divorce for same-sex couples in Colorado and elsewhere is still murky. Throughout the nation, a discussion offamily law regarding same-sex divorce has been overlooked in the fight for marriage equality. Conflicting state laws governing same-sex marriage are largely to blame, and can complicate issues relating to inheritance and child custody as well as divorce.
