Finding a deadbeat parent

When a noncustodial parent fails to pay child support to the custodial parent who is entitled to receive it, the delinquent parent may have to be located before the child support order can be enforced. In some situations, a noncustodial parent in Colorado or elsewhere may become elusive in an attempt to avoid a financial obligation to provide for the kids following a divorce.

Older adults divorcing in higher numbers

Some Colorado couples may be joining celebrities like Al and Tipper Gore or Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman in divorcing after decades of marriage. According to the National Center for Marriage and Family Research, divorce among older adults is rising. In 1990, people 50 and over were half as likely to get divorced as they were in 2014. There has been an even greater increase for people older than 65. This trend may be attributed both to divorce growing increasingly acceptable and to women over 60 setting divorce in motion because they see the opportunity for a fresh start.

Co-parenting remotely may grow easier after mediation

Colorado families may find it increasingly difficult to maintain a sense of stability when one parent moves away after a divorce. This might occur because the parent who moves wants to observe the same visitation schedule even though it forces the kids to spend more time traveling or hopping between schools and schedules. Problems could also arise when either parent finds a new romantic partner that their ex doesn't like.

Why more millennials might seek prenuptial agreements

People in Colorado who are bringing family money into a marriage or who own a business may want to consider a prenuptial agreement. According to the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, prenups have increased in popularity among millennials. In a survey of its members, a little more than half reported an increase in requests for prenups among millennials, and 62 percent said the increase had occurred in the past three years.
