Exploring co-parenting options for child custody

As a parent, you genuinely want what is best for your child. Since there is no guide to raising children, you are probably like most people and are simply doing your very best and hoping for a good outcome. However, some decisions are harder than others, like making child custody decisions during divorce.

How to detect whether a spouse is hiding assets

When couples in Colorado get divorced, one spouse may try to conceal assets from the other person. One way to do this is to hide portions of one's income, such as bonuses, commissions and dividends. For example, a person may receive a year-end bonus but ask an employer to hold on to it until the divorce is final, so it is not included in marital assets. This might be detected if the individual's spouse knows when the bonus is paid and notices that it is not included in the list of assets for the year.

The top regrets of people who divorce

People who divorce do so for a variety of reasons. Whether a couple splits up because of money problems, infidelity or just growing apart, it can be a difficult process. This is the case even when it is clearly the best path forward for everyone involved.

Why DNA tests matter in a child support case

Colorado residents who are seeking child support may need to establish paternity. This is true if the alleged father of the child was not married to the mother at the time of conception or birth. In most cases, DNA tests are used to establish paternity because of their high degree of accuracy. Tests are generally conducted by taking cells from the inside of a person's cheek.

Dealing with people who try to avoid child support obligations

Noncustodial parents in Colorado and throughout the country may try to use a tactic called voluntary impoverishment to avoid paying child support. This may involve a person failing to hold a job or taking jobs that don't maximize his or her earning potential. If someone has a formal child support order in place, authorities can take steps to impute the noncustodial parent's income. This means that he or she will be ordered to pay child support based on a projected annual income.
