What personal bankruptcy options are available to Coloradans?

When a debtor is contemplating bankruptcy, they will either file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, with some exceptions, the debtor's assets are liquidated, and the proceeds are used to pay of their debts. The process usually can be finished within a matter of months. In a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, the debtor may retain more assets, but will have to follow a court-ordered repayment plan that could last three to five years.

Colorado parenting in the summer, post-divorce

Summer is here and for children in Colorado whose parents have divorced, summer may mean that a child custody and parental visitation schedule will be followed that is different from the one followed in the school year. For example, during the school year, one parent may have custody of the child on weekdays, and the other parent may have visitation every-other weekend. However, oftentimes in the summer the noncustodial parent will have an extended period of visitation with the child, such as one month. In addition, both parents may want to take the child on a vacation that differs from their normal custody and visitation periods. It is important, then, to ensure any changes to a custody and visitation plan are lawful, in order to avoid unwanted surprises and conflicts.

How is spousal maintenance determined in Colorado?

How will courts in Colorado make property division decisions?

Usually, the longer a couple is married, the more assets they will acquire. Some of these assets, such as the family home and retirement accounts, can be quite valuable.

How can the family home be handled through property division?

The family home is where memories are made that will last a lifetime. From carrying the bride over the threshold, to birthday and holiday celebrations and more, people in Colorado can become very attached to the family home. That may be why it is such a hotly sought-after asset should a couple divorce. However, it is important to understand what keeping the family home after a divorce entails.
