Jessica Simpson's parents file for divorce

Divorce can put a strain on finances for all parties involved. This is especially true in a high-asset divorce, where property division must be carefully considered by family members or the courts. Prenuptial agreements and other documents may help in this process, but in their absence, a court may be expected to rule on dividing some assets. Those who face trouble arranging their finances and dividing assets should strive to understand their rights and obligations under the law.

Russell Crowe's divorce could cost him millions

Statistics show that many marriages end before the traditional "death us do part."

Dispensation of digital assets in a divorce

Colorado residents are spending increasing amounts of time online, creating digital lives and amassing digital assets in the process.

In either event, couples increasingly have to decide who gets what digital assets in the case of a divorce.

Child support a major factor in divorce financial decisions

During a divorce, both parties are faced with the task of separating their financial lives. When a child is involved, parents typically try to disturb the child's lifestyle as little as possible. This can be difficult financially, because funds that once supported a single household must now go toward two. Colorado family courts are filled with battling parents attempting to minimize their financial responsibilities related to child support. Good results can come from thoughtful negotiation regarding child support, helping ensure the best circumstances for all parties involved, especially the children.

When going through the divorce process, many important assets, such as art or vacation homes, will need to be divided.

Newsletter helps couples announce divorce

Most people get married intending to lead a long life together. However, circumstances and people can change, and the end result is often that a couple chooses to part.

Rate of divorce among older Americans is rising

High assets a likely consideration in Stevie Wonder divorce
