No higher divorce risk following out-of-wedlock births

Colorado couples may be interested to learn that according to a recent study by the Council on Contemporary Families, having a child before getting married does not increase the chances that the couple will divorce later. The study, which used research from couples whose first child was born between 1997 and 2010, compared data to that of couples who had their first child between 1985 and 1995. The study found that while the older group had a 60 percent higher chance of getting divorced, in the newer group, there was no difference between couples who had a child before or after wedlock.

Potential child custody issues

Colorado residents might benefit from learning more about some of the potential issues that arise out of many custody battles throughout the country. When one parent attempt to alienate children against the other parent, a family judge may intervene and order reunification therapy if it is in the best interest of the children.

Back to school issues for divorced parents

Separated or divorced parents living in Colorado often work hard to develop parenting time arrangements that are best for their children and that are fair to both parents. Sometimes, however difficulties can develop as the lifestyles of both the parents and the children change over the years. This can become particularly evident when children return to school.

Using a prenup to establish sound finances in a marriage

Finances can play a significant role in undermining a Colorado marriage, especially if issues such as secret spending or hidden accounts are uncovered. Even those who imagine that their marriages will last forever can fall victim to such activities, at which point the existence or lack of a prenuptial agreement could become a concern. Although the creation of a prenup may seem like a death sentence to a marriage, it can actually produce the opposite effect as it establishes grounds for financial fidelity.
