Can I leave my child home alone?

Contrary to popular belief, there is no set law in Colorado that gives a specific age when it is legal to leave a child home alone at home. Many people go by the Colorado Child Labor Law and consider 12 the minimum acceptable age. However, there are many other factors to consider, including the child's maturity level and whether he will be in charge of anyone else, such as younger siblings or when babysitting.

Understanding domestic partnerships

Domestic partnerships are a form of legal agreement that can help you protect yourself, your assets and any minor children should a long-term relationship end, but they are not the same thing as a civil union or marriage. While many people see domestic partnerships as a way for same-sex partners to protect themselves in lieu of a civil union, these agreements can also be a good idea for any couple who wants to live together long-term without getting married.
