Getting divorced in Colorado can be a new start to life, but it can also have a profound impact on your financial circumstances. Unless you have a thorough prenuptial agreement, you will either have to agree to terms regarding how to divide your property or allow the courts to handle asset division for you.
Divorce is rarely a simple process, even when all the parties involved want to end the marriage and agree to work together amicably. In most cases, divorce drags up deep emotional conflicts and often drives otherwise reasonable people to their breaking point.
After divorce, parents often struggle to make the transition to coparenting, especially if the divorce was particularly painful. While most parents do not want to make their child suffer because of parental conflicts, in many cases, that is exactly what happens. It is common for parents who do not understand the seriousness of their custody orders to use child custody conflicts as a way to punish the other parent or feel as though they "won the divorce."
