Consider the latest changes in Colorado's statewide mediators' organization (2011), in court fees to file for divorce, legal separation and parenting modification in Colorado (2009), Colorado's child support laws (2008),  financial statement forms (as simplified and revised in 2006), and the  sweeping 2005 changes to Colorado divorce law, process and forms — including the requirement of status conferences and of more detailed financial disclosures. Learn of the latest research demonstrating persistent benefits of divorce mediation for families. Consider the new and improved Financial Affidavit form. How have budget constraints delayed Colorado divorce and family court access? What is “Colorado professional mediator” status? What about changes in filing fees for Colorado couples filing for divorce or legal separation? How have the laws of Colorado divorce regarding child support and temporary spousal support (“maintenance,” or “alimony”) recently changed? How can the timing of year-end divorces sometimes save substantial money? How does the new child tax credit work with divorced parents (who qualifies, who gets the check, what about conflicts with agreements or orders before the new federal tax law?)

Learn also of our site’s unique resources to help you consider issues of parental responsibility (formerly called “child custody”) and timesharing (formerly called “visitation”), and to locate on-line Colorado divorce statutes of relevance to your Colorado divorce.
