Divorce case broadly relevant for its focus on shielding assets

A key aspect of most divorce negotiations and settlements in Colorado and every other state is asset division. In Colorado, that is carried out in a manner similar to most other states, namely, through what is termed an equitable distribution of property.

Legal versus recognized: two words causing divorce confusion

A lot of ground has been gained in the fight for same-sex marriage rights across the nation over the past few years. This year, more states passed laws that have made it possible for same-sex couples to get married. The Supreme Court of the United States struck down the Defense of Marriage Act, making it illegal to refuse federal benefits to same-sex spouses.

How social media can impact your divorce

Getting divorced can be a difficult and emotional time in a person's life. There are many factors to consider during divorce and with the ever-increasing presence of social media in our lives today, it is important for people getting divorced to understand how social media can impact their divorce.

Divorce and retirement planning challenges

Colorado residents are more likely to divorce at older ages than they ever did before. Seeing that women are more financially independent than in the past, this trend should not be surprising. (But even with this new independence, women still on average have $34,000 less following a divorce in retirement savings then do men.)

Protected trusts can complicate high-asset divorce proceedings

When couples in Fort Collins head to the negotiating table to work out the terms of their divorce, among the first objectives is to create a financial settlement that establishes a sense of security for both parties in post-divorce life.

Many stressful duties accompany the end of a marriage, including asset division, determining child custody and agreeing to a fair settlement.

A high-asset divorce between high-profile individuals may be even more emotionally charged because more assets are at stake and the media tends to take notice.

No divorce for Kobe Bryant and wife

The divorce process is never an easy one, especially when there are a large number of assets involved. A high-asset divorce can be quite a lengthy process. Sometimes during that process, a couple is able to find common ground and move forward without the need to divorce. Such appears to be the case in one high-profile divorce situation.

Estranged couple focuses on daughter during divorce

Any divorce is difficult, and there are always a lot of things to consider. When there is a child involved, child custody becomes the most important decision the divorcing couple will make. Anyone facing child custody decisions should consider all the options and consider the best interests of the child before making any settlement.
