When Avoiding Marital Conflict Makes It Worse

Successful marriages do not just require a sense of love and commitment. Both spouses should respect each other and attempt to gain a sense of understanding when they come to a rough spot. While couples that are seen constantly bickering do not appear like they will have a long relationship, those that take excessive measures to avoid conflict may end up dooming their marriage instead of saving it.

Electronic Scooter Accidents On The Rise

The popular ridesharing service Lyft recently debuted its electronic scooters in Denver. This increases the city's population of shareable scooters to 1,050, with more on the way. As if the scooters were not enough, shareable electronic bikes will be available soon. 

While these new transportation options have been welcomed by many, they have brought with them a new world of safety concerns that will need to be addressed.

Will Traffic Circles Make Streets Safer?

After much planning, Denver Public Works has installed three traffic circles on 35th Avenue. This is part of a larger plan to make city streets safer for drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians. These traffic circles are only temporary. The goal is to study their effectiveness and show the public that they work before installing permanent traffic circles in late 2019.

How Should Marital Assets Be Spent During A Divorce?

One of the most important outcomes of a divorce is the division of marital property. However, a divorce can take months. In the meantime, there are costs that need to be covered. Some of these will be shared costs such as the mortgage on the family home. Others will be individual costs such as food, clothes and travel.

Along the way, it is not uncommon for spouses to get into disagreements because one believes the other is unfairly depleting marital assets before they can be divided. Thankfully, there are protections in place to prevent misuse of marital assets, or to address it if it occurs while the divorce is in progress.

Should Denver Spend More To Keep Pedestrians And Cyclists Safe?

Denver has promised to spend $5 million on bike- and pedestrian-friendly projects in 2018. On the surface, this seems like a substantial amount of money. However, one organization argues that it pales in comparison to what other cities are spending and it is not nearly enough to accomplish everything the city has promised.

Do Not Forget Your Child's College Costs When Getting Divorced

Divorcing parents have a lot to think about, from child custody arrangements to child support payments. With everything else that needs to be addressed, it can be easy to overlook important details, such as the cost of a college education for your child. As this could be a critical aspect of ensuring a solid future for your child, it should be front and center as you are addressing property division and other aspects of your divorce.

Surviving The Deadliest 100 Days On The Road

Many people look forward to the summer months in Colorado. These are months of vacations and road trips, of bike rides and long walks in the sun.

Unfortunately, according to an article from AP News, these months are also the most deadly on Colorado roads. Nearly half the car accident related deaths statewide each year occur between May and August. This is such a big problem that the time between Memorial Day and Labor Day has been labeled the "deadliest 100 days" by some.

Are LGBT Parents Discriminated Against In Child Custody Cases?

It is not uncommon for lesbian, gay, bi and transgender people to come out later in life. This may come at the end of, or lead to the end of, a straight marriage or relationship. When that relationship has produced a child, there will be a child custody case that will set the stage for each parent's role in the child's life going forward.

In these situations, the LGBT parent may feel that they are at a disadvantage, or that they will be discriminated against and their child will be taken away from them.

Recovering Financially After A Car Crash

After a car crash, recovering physically from injuries will take priority. Depending on the severity of the injuries, this may require many doctor visits, surgeries and physical therapy. When all the healing is done and the medical bills have piled up, car crash victims may find that recovery is not over yet. Now the focus shifts to financial recovery.
