Lobbyist announces divorce

When going through a divorce, one of the most contentious parts for Colorado spouses is the property division settlement. The divorce process requires spouses to have their assets divided in one of two ways: they can reach a settlement that they both agree on, or they can rely on the court to make a decision based on its own discretion.

In one case, a distinguished lobbyist has announced that he and his lobbyist wife are seeking a divorce. The husband has alleged misconduct on the wife's part. This includes allegations that she has had the locks changed on their Italian apartment. Additionally, he alleges that she misled him about the potential for them to get back together, causing him to pay half of a hefty down payment on a home that she resided in while she in a relationship with another man.

At the heart of this case is a large amount of property. The husband is asking for all of the property that he owned prior to the couple's marriage. This includes real property in Italia, Australia, Washington and Virginia. He is also asking to retain a large collection of art. However, he says that he has been unable to reach an amicable decision with his wife regarding the disposition of the rest of the couple's property. He remains hopeful that the two can agree on the division of the rest of the property so that a judge will not need to make this decision.

Individuals who are going through the process of divorce may choose to seek out independent legal counsel. By taking this route, a family law attorney may help his or her client in the negotiations process so that the spouses can reach an amicable agreement regarding their marital assets.
