Young couples in Colorado planning their weddings may be wrapped up in choosing a venue, a caterer, flowers, the perfect dress and all the other wedding details. What they may not be so wrapped up in, however, is executing a prenuptial agreement. Many may even feel that they don't need one because they do not have much in the way of assets, and, out of naivety, believe divorce could never happen to them. However, no one can predict the future, so it is best to be prepared with a prenup.
While some people in Centennial may feel irked to see Christmas decorations for sale in stores before Halloween is even over, for better or worse, the winter holidays will be here before we know it. The holidays always bring with them a certain amount of stress, and this can be especially true if a couple with children has divorced. In fact, divorced parents may be well served to establish a holiday child custody schedule (or review an existing one) sooner, rather than later, to avoid unexpected surprises and conflict.
The decision to get a divorce is a big one and one that is not usually made lightly. Some couples in Colorado find that, even though they have made every effort to make their marriage work, the union simply isn't tenable. When couples are both able to agree that they need to divorce, they may want to keep the split as drama free as possible. For couples in this situation, collaborative law may be the key to an amicable divorce.
When a Colorado couple decides to end their marriage, one issue they may inevitably face is that of spousal support. The state of Colorado recognizes that while sometimes spousal support is just and necessary, it is important that there is consistency between spousal support awards in the state. To that end, the state enacted statutory guidelines to be used when determining how long a spouse should pay spousal support for, and in what amount.
