Tips for gaining child support from earned income

While Supplemental Security Income is not an option for an individual to collect late child support payments, there are alternative options for Colorado parents. Unlike SSI, which is considered a welfare benefit, earned income from retirement, disability and survivor benefits are possible areas from which to retrieve money for back child support.

Divorce is more likely when wife is seriously ill

Colorado residents should be aware that in marriages where the wife has a serious illness, the rate of divorce increases, according to studies. When John Edwards and Newt Gingrich received criticism for divorcing their sick wives, an assistant professor of human development and family studies at Iowa State became interested in the correlation between illness and divorce. She and fellow researchers published a study that reportedly found a 6-percent increase in the rate of divorce for couples with an ill wife.

Colorado artists' divorces include their work

When Colorado artists begin the divorce process, they should be aware that their creations and intellectual property are still considered marital assets. This extends to all works created or sold during the marriage, but exempts those created before the marriage or after legal separation began. Artists' spouses may claim certain pieces or interests in residual income or copyright from such pieces for a given time or percentage of the work's appraised value.
