Third party "de facto" parent in child custody case

An unusual and highly controversial case has reached one state's highest court, and the result is being received with mixed opinions in Colorado and across the nation. The case centers on a child born to a same-sex couple, where only one of the women had a biological link to the child. After making its way through the courts, the most recent ruling in the child custody case has given the other woman status as the child's "de facto" parent. That means that the woman, who now identifies as a transgender man, will be able to seek custody and visitation rights to the little boy.

Consider insurance needs during division of marital assets

There are so many details that demand one's attention when a marriage is ending that many Colorado spouses feel completely overwhelmed. This can be a hectic time, but the decisions made now can have a great deal of impact on one's future. That is why it is so important to cover all of the bases, especially when it comes to the division of marital assets. One topic that is often overlooked during a divorce is insurance coverage.

Guitar at center of division of marital assets

There are certain pieces of music memorabilia that are incredibly valuable. The guitar played by Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain during the band's appearance on MTV Unplugged certainly falls into that category. The acoustic guitar was one of the last instruments that Cobain played prior to his suicide just months later, and was handed down to his widow and daughter. That instrument is now at the center of a debate on the division of marital assets, which is a story that many Colorado residents are following.

Child custody case focuses on wrongful adoption

When a child is placed for adoption in Colorado or elsewhere, the adoptive parents want to feel assured that they will be able to care for their newest family member for the duration of their lives. The reality is that some adoptions are more complex than others, and there are circumstances in which an adoption can be challenged or even overthrown. An example is found in a child custody case in which a child's father argued that his parental rights were violated by his daughter's adoption.
