If you're considering a divorce or currently going through the process of ending a marriage, you probably already know that you need a financial advisor or an experienced Colorado family law attorney on your side to help you protect your interests. But many divorcing spouses, faced with an unfavorable real estate market, are adding real estate agents to their divorce teams as well.
Last week we introduced some employment concerns that may be faced by domestic violence victims who are leaving abusive relationships. You may wonder what you are required to tell your boss, or what kind of protection you can expect in the workplace. Leaving an abusive relationship is not easy and takes a great deal of courage - to a lesser extent, the same may be true of talking with your HR rep.
If you find yourself in an abusive relationship, being at home with your abuser can become a nightmare. However, for some the home isn't where the abuse ends. Often the violent party will try to contact the victim at work, even making threats via business email or showing up at their partner's office.
In our last post we introduced several different types of alimony, or spousal support, and talked about situations in which each may be appropriate. If you have an idea of what type of alimony may be awarded in your divorce proceedings you may wonder how long you can expect to either receive or make payments.
Alimony or, as it is sometimes called in Colorado, spousal maintenance refers to payments made from one former spouse to the other after divorce. Often during a marriage, one party may become accustomed to a certain lifestyle and the law provides for the wealthier spouse to make payments for them to maintain it.
In our most recent post we discussed the case of the recent Powerball winner who was discovered to owe $29,000 in back child support. The lottery division of the state where he lives will likely take that money out of his lump sum lottery payment, which will total approximately $152 million.
The winner of the recent $338 million Powerball jackpot made headlines when he came into riches - and then again shortly after when it was discovered that he owes nearly $30,000 in back child support.
