Divorce over the age of 50 particularly hard on women

The number of older couples filing for divorce in Colorado and around the country is on the rise. Divorce rates began to fall in the United States in the 1990s after soaring in the 70s and 80s, but divorces involving people over the age of 50 doubled between 1990 and 2010. Sociologists refer to the phenomena as gray divorce, and it can be particularly difficult for women who are often forced back into the job market after decades spent raising a family.

Alternatives to divorce litigation in Colorado

Divorcing couples in Colorado and around the country often hope to get through the process quickly and with the minimum of stress and upheaval, but negotiations over delicate subjects like alimony and the division of marital assets can easily become contentious. Couples who broadly agree on most matters may be able to navigate their way through the process without setting foot in a courtroom, but uncontested divorces are fragile things and minor disagreements can dash hopes of an amicable settlement.

Best practices for social media use during a divorce

Separating couples in Colorado may want to avoid social media when they are going through a divorce. While deleting accounts altogether may not be wise because this could lead to accusations of destroying evidence, people should not put information on social media that they do not wish to have aired in court later. Furthermore, it is important to remember that texts and emails might be subject to subpoena.
