Colorado civil union law extends protection to splitting families

Over the last several years, same-sex marriage and civil unions have been among the most discussed family law topics across the nation. Although Colorado doesn't allow same-sex marriages, as of May 1 the state will recognize civil unions. This arrangement functions similarly to a marriage in that it provides legal protections to parents and children.

In divorce, don't forget to settle home mortgage issues

When Colorado couples make the decision to divorce, there are a number of critical legal issues that must be settled in order to move into the next phase of life. In addition to family matters such as child custody, many divorcing couples have to decide what they will do with their house.

A strong prenuptial agreement can ease property division

When exchanging vows, most Colorado couples probably aren't thinking about divorce. However, things come up and unforeseeable circumstances can lead to the decision to split up. As such, some people rely on the security and peace of mind provided by a prenuptial agreement, largely considered to be a nearly iron-clad legal agreement designating how assets will be divided in the event of divorce.

When divorce is in the best interests of children, families

Making the decision to divorce is usually not easy. Between splitting assets and property, creating a child custody arrangement and figuring out post-divorce living situation, there are a whole host of impactful decisions that need to be made in the process. Although the decision to divorce should be carefully considered, it may also be the best option for some Colorado families.
