DIVORCING WITHOUT CHILDREN IN COLORADO
Divorces without minor children are a matter of dividing property, allocating assets, and distributing any debt accumulated during the marriage. It is unlikely that there will be divorce considerations involving children over the age of 19.
A separation agreement for parties without children will include the division of:
- Real estate;
- Motor vehicles;
- Cash and bank accounts;
- Life insurance policies;
- Household goods;
- Personal property;
- Stocks, bonds, and mutual funds;
- Securities & investment accounts; and
- Pensions, profits sharing, and retirement funds.
The settlement will also include a division of the debts of the parties, how taxes will be handled during the year of the divorce and going forward, maintenance (also known as spousal support), and any other terms the parties deem necessary to resolve their marriage issues. Retaining counsel in these matters is of the utmost importance. A divorce attorney can offer legal advice regarding the tax ramifications of property settlements and maintenance awards, in addition to making sure assets and debts are properly valued and distributed equitably.
