Will split custody be bad for my child's well-being?

It's only natural to wonder how spending time in two different households will affect your child. It may seem like having two sets of rules, two different bedrooms and two different schedules would be a great source of stress. But you can rest assured that a split custody arrangement is not going to be harmful for your child.

Can I get an annulment instead of a divorce?

Yes, but only in very specific circumstances. An annulment, or declaration of invalidity of marriage as it is called in Colorado, most likely will not be any easier for you to obtain than a divorce. The outcomes are essentially the same; the only distinction is that if your marriage is annulled, it is considered never to have happened in the eyes of the law. Depending on how long you were with your ex, getting an annulment may still involve dealing with such issues as property division and child support.

Child support requirement blocks teen mothers from access to care

Thanks to an initiative put into place a few years ago, the teen birth rate in Colorado has been drastically reduced. According to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, the number of teen mothers aged 15 to 19 fell 48 percent between 2009 and 2014. However, for those mothers who do give birth as teenagers, access to child care can often be problematic.

What estate planning documents should I update after my divorce?

If you had a written will at any point during your marriage in Colorado, the beneficiary was most likely your spouse. If you fail to update your will after your divorce and something happens to you, your ex could still end up inheriting your estate. If you and your ex have children, a will can also be a way for you to designate a guardian for them in the event that neither you nor your ex can take care of them.
