'Gray divorcees' face different issues than younger couples

Over the past 25 years, the divorce rate for adults between the ages of 25 and 39 has gone down over 20 percent. However, Pew Research reports that the divorce rate for older adults, age 50 and up, has increased by nearly 110 percent. Called a "gray divorce," it is important to note that older adults in Colorado who choose to end their marriages face different legal issues than younger couples.

Fewer people arrested for DUI over St. Patrick's Day holiday

Green beer may be a hallmark of St. Patrick's Day celebrations in Colorado, but too much alcohol can lead to a drunk driving arrest if a person isn't careful. Police across the state generally have a stronger presence on holidays where alcohol consumption is common, and St. Patrick's Day is no exception. In fact, police across the state made hundreds of DUI arrests over the St. Patrick's Day holiday.

Three new bills would change how Colorado handles bail and bond

Every day thousands of people are kept in Colorado jails because they cannot pay bail or post bond. However, two House bills and one Senate bill recently introduced would change the way bail and bond are handled in Colorado. These bills, if passed, could have a significant effect on criminal defense law in the state.

What happens to the family business when the owners divorce?

Sometimes, after a couple in Colorado is married, they decide to establish a business together. Having a family business can be an emotionally and financially satisfying endeavor. However, even if the family business sees success, a couple's marriage is not always so strong, and they may decide they are best off divorcing. When this happens, some important decisions must be made regarding what to do with the family business post-divorce.

Delinquent juveniles in Colorado have legal protections

When a juvenile in Colorado makes a poor decision that leads to criminal charges, it is generally preferable for them to receive the help they need to reform, rather than face punitive consequences. To this end, the Juvenile Justice and Prevention Act of 2002 was enacted to improve the juvenile justice system in Colorado and reduce the level of juvenile delinquency in the state. There are several main components of the Act.

Communication can be key in helping teens thrive post-divorce

Teenagers these days are often more comfortable sending a text message or video chatting to communicate with others rather than with their parents. However, parents in Colorado should recognize that these communication methods can help parents and teens develop a strong relationship with one another, particularly if the parents are divorced.

Does every divorce need to be litigated in court?

It goes without saying that many couples in Colorado who choose to end their marriage have a certain amount of hard feelings between them. However, it is important that they treat each other respectfully. This can make the divorce process run more smoothly, especially if they are able to negotiate their divorce issues. Many couples may find more satisfaction by settling their divorce without having to go through the stress and cost of a lengthy trial.

Protect yourself from the harsh consequences of drug charges

Drug offenses are some of the most frequently charged crimes in Colorado. Whether they are possession charges, trafficking charges or manufacturing charges, it goes without saying that a conviction for drug charges could lead to years behind bars. But, your troubles won't end there. Even if you aren't convicted, simply being charged with a drug crime can damage your reputation.
