A good prenup can guide the division of marital assets

When a celebrity couple decides to move toward divorce, the details of their personal and financial lives often become fodder for both traditional and tabloid media. In some cases, the public can learn from the experience of divorcing celebrities. An example lies in the recent divorce of actress Kaley Cuoco and her husband Ryan Sweeting. Because the couple had a prenuptial agreement in place, the division of marital assets was simplified, leaving Cuoco the bulk of her wealth. That outcome could prompt many Colorado readers to consider including a prenup in their own wedding plans.

What factors influence child custody decisions in Colorado?

If you're a parent who is contemplating or going through a divorce, you likely want to do everything possible to provide for your child's safety and wellbeing. You also probably have many questions about how child custody and visitation decisions are made. It's important, therefore, to ensure that you understand what issues can impact the outcome of a custody case.

Is this a wise or a wacky child custody solution?

Dividing parenting time is one of the most difficult aspects of any divorce. Most Colorado parents struggle with how to make the process of co-parenting easier for both adults and children. There are a multitude of ways to approach the process, and some work out better for a family than others. One of the more unusual child custody arrangements is known as "birdnesting."

Estate planning is an area of law that allows for an individual to determine how assets will be distributed, but it also does more. A properly tailored estate plan should consider the following:

Juggling work obligations and divorce requirements

One thing that many Colorado residents do not expect while divorcing is the sheer volume of tasks that must be accomplished in a relatively short period of time. It can feel like a full-time job, which is a lot on top of one's actual full-time job. Finding ways to manage both work obligations and handle divorce tasks is essential to moving through this period of life with ease.
