Regardless of age or income level, a divorce can be hard on the emotions and the finances of Colorado couples who are going through the process. But, with a little preparation and a few best practices, it is possible to minimize the damage to both.
The end of a marriage is a difficult time for a family when children are involved, and couples with pets are finding that deciding who gets custody of the family dog can be equally as hard.

Colorado Dodgers' fans learned that the ex-wife of team owner Frank McCourt would have to be satisfied with only $131 million. That amount was awarded to Jamie McCourt in her divorce from the Los Angeles Dodgers owner, who went on to sell the team for a record $2.15 billion just five months later. A judge told her that she had no legal basis to share in the $1.278 billion profit her ex-husband scored in the deal.
