Most people from Colorado and around the country probably haven't thought about announcing their divorce - or perhaps they have. How many times have you had to repeat the ghastly details because yet another one of your acquaintances hadn't heard about your split? It's not a pleasant time, anyway, but having to rehash it time and time again certainly does not make it any easier. Wouldn't it just be easier to send out an announcement about your divorce and let everyone know at once that this break-up is happening? Isn't there any guidance out there on how to properly tell people that you're going through a divorce?

After a divorce, the last thing you probably want to do is think about is getting friendly with your ex - at least for most people, anyway. Most divorces simply aren't that amicable. At some point, though, ex-couples find it's just easier to become somewhat friendlier towards an ex-spouse.
In a case out of Colorado's neighboring state of Kansas, a man has asked a judge in Shawnee County District Court to find that he does not owe child support.
