Lawmaker wants divorce classes to start sooner in process

Colorado couples contemplating a divorce may be interested in proposed legislation in Utah that may affect the timing of divorce proceedings. Parents getting divorced in Utah and many other states now must attend a special class before the split is finalized, and now some Utah lawmakers want to have couples go through the class earlier in hopes of saving the marriage, particularly if children are involved.

Divorce linked to credit-score boosts

Most Web browsers are used to the smorgasbord of online ads for ways to boost a credit score. For married couples in Colorado, it may come as a surprise that statistics have shown that one way to boost credit scores may be to get a divorce. About 30 percent of respondents to a Credit.com survey of post-divorce credit scores said they saw their scores improve considerably. The survey documented the responses of 526 divorced people. It was not a nationally representative study, but it covered individuals of different incomes, educational backgrounds, ages and locations.

Comedian pays alimony

Denver couples who are recently divorced or going through the divorce process may find themselves having to pay alimony to former spouses. Depending on the circumstances of the divorce, alimony may or may not need to be paid. Generally, alimony is needed when there is a large discrepancy in income between spouses. For instance, if one spouse makes hundreds of thousands of dollars while one stays at home, the stay-at-home spouse may need to receive alimony payments as a means of support.

Another "Real Housewives" couple may divorce

Ramona Singer, one of the stars of the reality hit series "Real Housewives of New York," and her husband Marco are ending their marriage of 27 years. Recent reports have surfaced of infidelity on the part of both spouses. Ramona, 56, and her husband Marco, 60, have both been reported to be seen out on the town with individuals who could be described as significantly younger than either of them.
