Can I Get Sole Custody Of My Child?

In a child custody dispute, it is only natural to want to protect your relationship with your child. You want to ensure that you have as much time as possible with your child going forward. You may even want to have sole custody and not allow the other parent to spend any time with your child. However, this is very rarely allowed in Colorado.

Will Health Insurance Be Enough After A Car Accident?

After suffering an injury in a car accident, people with health insurance often feel lucky that their policy will cover their medical bills. Unfortunately, they often discover that the insurance policy they thought would protect them falls short of addressing all the costs.

What Factors Determine Child Support Payments?

When a child is born to an unmarried couple, or when parents get a divorce or separate, child support is likely to become an issue.

While many aspects of family law in Colorado are complex, determining child support payments is relatively straightforward. This is thanks to clear guidelines set by the Colorado Legislature. Understanding the guidelines will give you an indication of how much child support you may have to pay or how much child support you may receive.

Your Employer May Be Skimping On Your Wages in More Ways Than One

Working for a living is part of life, and often the size of a person's paycheck does not correlate to exactly how hard they have worked or the level of dedication they bring to the job. This is true not only because many people do not earn a fair live-able wage for their work, but because they are often shortchanged in receiving the wages they earned.

Would You Let A Bot Handle Your Divorce?

Technology is always making things easier for people. After the success of his popular chatbot DoNotPay, one entrepreneur is trying to make it easier for people to take care of legal issues by introducing bots to help with legal paperwork. While it might sound simple enough to get a bot's assistance with a parking ticket, what about something as complicated as divorce, which could affect someone's entire future? 

Are Insurers Trying To Deter Homeowners From Filing Claims?

Here's how homeowners insurance policies are supposed to work: The homeowner pays the premiums for the agreed-upon coverage. If a covered event occurs and the home is damaged, the insurance company pays out. After the matter is resolved, the homeowner continues to pay premiums and the insurer continues to provide coverage.

Unfortunately, a study from Rutgers University and United Policyholders has found serious problems with the last part of this equation, and it may be deterring homeowners from filing legitimate claims that should be covered by their policies.

Is Property Divided 50-50 In A Divorce?

When going into a divorce, many people believe that marital property will simply be divided in half between the two spouses. While a 50-50 division of property may be fair in some situations, that is not always the case. They key word here is "fair."

Colorado is one of 39 equitable distribution states, as opposed to a community property state where a 50-50 division of assets may be mandated by law. Here, marital property is to be divided in a fair and equitable manner. That does not necessarily mean 50-50.

Do Insurers Play Hardball With Car Accident Victims?

This is supposed to be a simple process. Somebody hit you. Perhaps they were intoxicated, looking at their smartphone or just speeding. Whatever the case may be, it was their fault, and you suffered an injury because of it. Rightfully, you should not be on the hook for the associated medical bills, lost wages and other costs. The negligent party's insurance should cover that. After all, isn't that what auto insurance is for?

Unfortunately, car crash victims are often quick to learn that getting fair compensation is not as simple as the insurance company handing over a settlement. Claims are frequently denied or delayed without explanation. Sometimes, a settlement offer comes in, but it is not enough even to cover medical expenses, let alone other costs.

What Domestic Violence Victims Need To Know About Taxes

Victims of abusive spouses often find that getting away from the abuser and out of the marriage is only the first step. Because financial control is a hallmark of domestic abuse, victims may be left in financial turmoil and facing serious tax consequences. Thankfully, victims of domestic violence have special rights when it comes to taxes.

What Is Needed To Prove That A Contract Was Breached?

At the heart of many business disputes is a contract that has been violated, or breached. However, proving that a contract was breached is not always as simple as it sounds. Knowing what needs to be proven and proving it clearly is critical to success in these cases.
