Angelina Jolie files for divorce from Brad Pitt

Agreements protect cohabiting couples when buying homes

The purchase of a home represents an exciting time for an unmarried couple in Colorado, but, if the relationship sours, legal questions about ownership could get thorny. Marriage provides couples with specific legal terms when they jointly buy property, but it is recommended that cohabiting couples draft written agreements that spell out how the property will be divided or paid for if the parties go separate ways.

Retirement accounts and divorcing baby boomers

Baby boomers are aging, and as they do so in Colorado and throughout the country, they are also divorcing at higher rates than previous generations. People older than 50 were twice as likely to divorce in 2014 than people that age in 1990, and those over 65 were three times more likely. As a result, a major concern in some divorce cases has become protecting retirement accounts. Older adults do not have decades ahead of them to recover from a financially ruinous divorce.

Some states shifting toward shared child custody

Colorado parents who are getting a divorce may be interested to learn that approaches to child custody are changing throughout the country. Some states have passed laws that encourage shared custody arrangements between parents, and increasingly it is believes that children benefit from spending more time with both parents.

Chris Rock finalizes divorce

Colorado fans of comedian and actor Chris Rock may find the star even easier to relate to given his recent divorce settlement. Despite being married for almost 20 years, the couple decided to call it quits.
