How To Handle Halloween After A Split

As far as holidays go, Halloween isn't usually considered a major one. In parenting plans or parenting schedules, Halloween may not get much attention. However, when you have young children, the issue of Halloween may be worth thinking about in your parenting plan.

The Importance Of Co-Parenting Classes

When you file for divorce or a determination of parental responsibilities in Colorado, virtually every court will require you to attend a co-parenting course offered in your area. Even if you are not required to attend a co-parenting course, we always recommend this type of course to help prepare you for life as a separated family. The courses do not necessarily need to be attended with the other parent. 

How Does Property Get Divided In Colorado?

In Colorado, property is divided and awarded to each spouse in a manner the court "deems just after considering all relevant factors." CO Rev Stat § 14-10-113 (2016). The factors are interpreted based on the unique circumstances of each case. While the courts tend to favor an equal distribution of property, the law does not require a strict 50-50 division but rather an "equitable" or "fair" distribution.

Morality Of Divorce: Societal Shift Toward Greater Acceptance

A recent Gallup poll addressing the morality of divorce outlines a continuing shift in societal attitudes toward divorce. The results show that, in the view of 73% of Americans, divorce is morally acceptable. This is an all time high. The number has risen 14 percentage points from 2001.

Creating New Traditions: Holidays And Co-Parenting

When you are in the middle of a parenting time dispute, one of the main issues may be the holiday time and how to share it. Before the divorce was pending, you were able to spend every holiday with your children. Now, you are asked to compromise and divide holiday time so the children can spend time with the other parent. Deciding on a holiday parenting plan is just part of learning how to share your parenting time and allocation of parental responsibilities. Except in very unusual circumstances, courts are going to find ways to allow each parent roughly one half of the holiday parenting time.

"Nesting" - Is It Right For Your Family?

While not a new concept, the term "nesting" doesn't often get a lot of attention in divorces. The idea refers to those situations where, after a divorce or separation, the children remain in the same home and the parents move in and out during their respective parenting time.

Collaborative Law Helps You Avoid Court

Collaborative divorce has been around for over twenty years. This approach has its origin in family law but also has been used in business and probate matters. Many of the practitioners - attorneys, therapists, financial professionals and mediators - believed there was a better way to assist parties and their children through the divorce process. 

Yelling at your children can hurt them - learn how to fix it

Raising children is difficult work. While there are many self-help books, there is no single guidebook on how to be the perfect parent. To be a good and effective parent does not require perfection - only an understanding of the impact of your behavior on your child's emotional and psychological development.
