Divorce official for Reba McEntire and Narvel Blackstock

Country music fans in Colorado may have heard about the separation of singer Reba McEntire and her husband Narvel Blackstock. After 26 years of marriage, the pair announced their separation in August but didn't say whether they were planning to divorce. Now, McEntire has announced that she and Blackstock are officially divorced, and the divorce was finalized on Oct. 28.

Divorce options for doctors and others

Divorce can be a difficult and antagonistic process for Colorado couples. Professionals such as doctors have rigorous schedules, and these demands can take a significant toll on a family. When divorce results, there can be huge costs to litigate the matter, and high-earning professionals may face serious costs in order to finalize such a matter. However, there are some alternatives that can minimize the animosity and save money.

Divorce filings soar at the beginning of the year

Many Colorado residents make resolutions to lose weight or stop smoking at the beginning of the year, but they may not know that January is also the most popular month for divorce filings. According to the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, new divorce filings are often about one-third higher in January than at any other time of the year. However, those thinking about initiating divorce proceedings may be wise to address certain legal and financial matters first.

The importance of financial discussions in marriage

Couples in Colorado may want to consider having a conversation about their shared and individual finances. It is important to have a good handle on the family finances in case of divorce, but doing so can also prevent divorce. Money is one of the main things that couples fight about, and by agreeing on a budget and setting financial goals together, it is possible that this conflict can be avoided.
