Although divorce seems common nowadays, the process is by no means simple. While the stress of a divorce can be reduced when couples decide to part amicably, there are still many who go through the process like they are walking on a tight rope without a net underneath. For divorcing couples in Colorado, this kind of situation presents the obvious choice to litigate. But, before doing so, couples should take certain things into consideration, since settling could still be an option.
Many couples in Colorado dream of adding children to their families. Unfortunately, some couples are unable to conceive, so for them adoption is one way to fulfill their desire for kids. While the process may be promising, it can also be challenging.
Child support is pretty straightforward. A non-custodial parent either agrees to pay the monthly amount or is required to do so by the court. Subsequently, a custodial parent receives the payment to be used for the benefit of the child. However, for some custodial parents in Colorado, such a scenario may seem more like wishful thinking.
A divorce alters the lives of more than the couple involved; it changes their children's lives, too. Even the most amicable breakup can still have an emotional toll on children. For parents divorcing in Colorado, as elsewhere in the country, this can be a hard fact to accept. However, accepting this truth can help both parents and their children ride the emotional roller coaster more easily.
Paternity is a serious and sensitive issue. For many Colorado residents, the subject can even be offensive. One author who recently wrote an article about paternity and family knows this all too well. His article garnered a number of comments, many of them negative. However, he adds that when it comes to paternity, a "game changer" may save parents, particularly fathers, from unnecessary trouble.
