Women initiate more than two-thirds of divorces

When a couple in Colorado divorces, a woman likely dissolved the marriage because nationwide 69 percent of divorces are at the behest of the wife. When researchers studied which genders motivated breakups of romantic partnerships, they expected the results to skew to the female side in both marriages and non-marital relationships. However, men and women proved to be equal sources of breakups when dating or living together. Only marriage caused more women than men to end the relationship.

Child support modifications

Divorced parents in Colorado sometimes have concerns about child support obligations. While support issues are typically addressed at the time of divorce, there are situations in which the amount of support issued may be subject to revision through an order modification.

Social Security benefits for divorced spouses

Divorced Colorado residents may benefit from learning more about different strategies regarding Social Security spousal benefits. The amount attained by the beneficiaries is reliant on the earnings test, an assessment of the employment status and level of income. The Social Security Administration has the authority to withhold $1 of benefits for every $2 earned in excess of the lower threshold, and $1 for every $3 for the higher threshold.
