How do you modify spousal support in Colorado?

It's not uncommon for spousal support rulings in Colorado to have predefined end dates. For instance, the spousal support may end when the recipient remarries or enters into a cohabitation relationship with another person. A spousal support order may also end after a certain period, such as five years. Sometimes, though, one party may find it necessary to modify the support order before that termination date.

What is a common law marriage?

Colorado residents may be curious to know what common law marriage is. A common law marriage is one that is based on the couple's mutual agreement to be married to one another but not based on any legal or ceremonial formalities. The marriage is considered legitimate as long as there is nothing that legally stands in the way of the marriage, such as age, and the pair are generally regarded as a married couple.

Interstate child custody matters

Colorado has specific laws related to child custody matters in order to protect the welfare of children as they are involved in the system. The state encourages communication between the courts and will handle scheduling and matters of record without involving the parents. However, if the issue is relevant to the case, both parties have a right to be informed and be given the opportunity to present their side, along with any legal arguments in the case.

Acknowledgement of Paternity and its importance

In Colorado, the alleged father of a child who is not married to the child's mother can establish paternity by signing an Acknowledgement of Paternity form at birth or before the child turns 18. While a local court or Child Support Enforcement office can legally establish paternity, signing the document establishes paternity outside of court.
