5 ways to protect yourself before a divorce

Divorces can be life-altering for everyone involved. Whether you've been married for five years or 50, the negative effects can be the same. As you work on finding your new normal, it's important that you take care of yourself, even if the emotional damage seems too much to handle at the time. If you were expecting the divorce or are the spouse who wanted it, you have time to prepare. If you were blindsided, you'll want to take steps to protect your future and best interests quickly.

Why everyone should have a prenuptial agreement

Over the past few years, prenuptial agreements have become more popular than ever. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention put the divorce rate in America at close to 50 percent. This shows that close to half of all marriages end in divorce. Many of them are unprotected by a prenuptial agreement because the couple never thought their union would end. If you are engaged or planning to get married soon, there are many benefits of signing a prenuptial agreement before the big day.

Divorce and Back-to-School Challenges

With school back in session, children and parents throughout the Denver area may still be adjusting to the many changes a new school year brings. For those parents who recently split from a spouse or went through a divorce, these types of changes are likely to be especially pronounced and include adjustments in how a parent must communicate and interact with an ex.

The pros and cons of prenups

You've probably heard a lot about prenuptial agreements (also known as "premarital agreements," "premarital contracts," or perhaps most widely as just "prenups"). Thanks to the media coverage of celebrity divorces, as well as the influence of television shows and movies, you may envision them as seemingly evil things that are used only by the very wealthy for the purpose of keeping their poorer former spouses from getting a fair share of marital assets.
