Appealing property division in a divorce can be very tough

In most Colorado divorce proceedings, one of the main problems that must be solved is how to split up the marital property. If the couple has a prenuptial agreement, division of property may be predetermined. But a lot of couples did not create a prenup, or one spouse may dispute the document.

How student loans are affected by divorce

College education in Colorado and around the U.S. has become so expensive that it could be decades before many recent graduates pay off their student loans. Students who took out loans to help pay for their education had an average of $29,400 of debt upon their graduation in 2012, according to one source. For a married couple, it may not be unusual for the household to have a total of $100,000 or more in student loans.

In divorce, a business may be part of the property division

For small business owners in Virginia, going through divorce may have an added complication that most other couples will not have to face. Like any other asset owned by one or both spouses, a business may be considered part of the marital property. In other words, in order to keep your business, you may have to pay your spouse part of its value.
