What to know about military divorces in Colorado

Governing Magazine reports that in August 2013, there were over 37,000 active military personnel living in Colorado. As a result, divorces involving service members and their spouses inevitably arise and require special consideration compared to divorces between civilians. While military divorces do proceed in civil court, there are some special circumstances that apply.

Sole custody: When is it appropriate?

Many courts are starting to embrace the idea that it is best for a child in Colorado to have frequent contact with both parents, and for both parents to be involved in raising the child. However, sometimes there are circumstances where granting one parent sole custody is warranted. The U.S. Census Bureau reports that in 2011, more than 28 percent of all children lived with only one biological parent.

What happens when your ex remarries or cohabitates

After a marriage ends, one or both parties will usually move on to a new relationship at some point. According to U.S. News & World Report, the number of second marriages in the country is on the rise. When that happens, someone who is paying ongoing alimony to their ex-spouse may wonder what their ex's new relationship means for their financial future.

Failure to disclose assets can nullify your prenuptial agreement

Because many people are waiting until later in life to get married for the first time, prenuptial agreements are growing in popularity in Colorado. The Atlantic reports that in 2013, the average age for a first marriage was 29 for men and 27 for women. This means that people have been in the workforce for some period before getting married, and may have accumulated assets that they want protected if their marriage ends in divorce.

DNA testing combats paternity fraud

With fewer couples choosing to wait until marriage to have children, issues surrounding paternity have been on the rise in Colorado. Sometimes a mother may mistakenly identify someone as the father of her child, while other times a woman may purposefully name someone as the father in order to fraudulently collect child support or to qualify for welfare.
