Tips for ending a marriage in the age of social media

When a Colorado couple ends their marriage, they will need to remember that technology has changed several aspects of dealing with an ex-partner. In the past, a disgruntled spouse might have called a friend or two to vent about their frustration during a divorce. Now, they might post a comment on social media about the unfair treatment they are suffering. What was previously a private comment to one or two people could now be seen in public by hundreds of people. The comment typed in the heat of the moment could lead to huge problems down the road when it is time to negotiate a divorce settlement.

Lifestyle clauses and marital agreements

Whether pre- or post-, a marital agreement can protect couples in Denver who are preparing for a financial future. A recent question that many family attorneys have addressed is whether or not adding a lifestyle clause to a prenuptial agreement will affect the quality of a person's marriage. Lifestyle agreements specify behavior guidelines during the marriage in addition to matters normally addressed, such as property division, alimony and estate planning.

Health care coverage and divorce

Prior to the passage of the Affordable Care Act, some Colorado residents may have worried about losing their health insurance following a divorce. Although COBRA has typically provided divorced persons with 36 months of coverage, the required premiums may not be affordable to some people, and there is no guarantee of obtaining an individual policy when the three-year COBRA coverage lapses.

Single fathers at the helm in many more households 

Some Colorado parents may find it interesting that the number of households led by single fathers has increased dramatically across the country. A Pew Research study published in mid-2013 suggested that such households represent eight percent of all American households with children. By contrast, in 1960, only one percent of households were led by single dads. Although single mothers also lead households more than ever, the rate of increase was more dramatic amongst dads.
