Same-sex couples must stay on top of changing laws

In last week's blog post, we discussed how the legality of same-sex marriage in Colorado is undergoing a lot of firsts. All of these firsts mean that the laws are constantly changing. Staying on top of all the changes, rulings and precedents being set can be a challenging undertaking. We understand that you might not have all the time in the world to keep up with everything going on when it comes to same-sex marriage and divorce.

Same-sex partners face changing laws in Colorado

With all the news about same-sex marriages, some of our Colorado readers might be wondering how the latest developments will affect people in the state. The answer is simple, but it is also complicated. With the order of the Attorney General John Suthers, all 64 county clerks in the state have to issue same-sex marriage licenses. This means that courts will also have to deal with same-sex divorce cases. There are some other aspects to same-sex couples that are also affected by the acceptance of same-sex marriage.

Virtual visitation might solve some child custody issues

For parents who don't have primary or physical custody of their children, spending time with the children might be difficult. The problem is sometimes made even more difficult if the child's custodial parent doesn't live near the non-custodial parent. In the past, the non-custodial parent might have had to deal with only getting periodic phone calls from their child. With the changes in technology that are occurring on a rapid basis, it is now easier for non-custodial parents to be an active part of their child's life. Our readers in Colorado might like to know how virtual visitation works and how it can help the parent and child.

Parenting agreements can make child custody matters easier

In our blog last week, we mentioned that Kris and Bruce Jenner are getting a divorce and that they are seeking joint custody of their youngest daughter. The divorce seems to be affecting the teenage girl, but at least she isn't having to deal with a bitter child custody battle over her. For our readers in Colorado who are parents going through a divorce, learning about parenting agreements might help them to come to an agreement about how to handle their own child custody matters.

Bruce and Kris Jenner divorce, daughter affected

When some people divorce, they are able to do so in a way that is amicable. When that happens, it is sometimes possible for the former spouses to keep up a good working relationship and a friendship that can have a positive impact on the children. The amicability of the divorce also has an effect on those most affected by the divorce -- their children. In the case of Kris and Bruce Jenner, their divorce is amicable, but it is still affecting their youngest child.
