School Safety 2 -- School Violence Reporting

Many of you may have seen the following report on the Denver Post / Denver 7News on on May 19, 2014: http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/call7-investigators/7news-denver-post-investigation-finds-school-violence-reporting-lacks-oversight-accountability.  The story focused on how many Colorado school districts inaccurately report the number of assaults and fights that they have. There is a great deal of accuracy to this claim.  

Family Law: Do I Need a Child and Family Investigator?

Child and Family Investigators are tools used by the Court and parties to help determine parental right and responsibilities in family law cases. Commonly referred to as a CFI, they are usually used in extreme cases where there are allegations of abuse and mistreatment by one or more parents. The court can appoint a CFI on its own if there are allegations of abuse by one party or either party may ask for a CFI if they believe one is necessary. CFI's are commonly attorneys, mental health professionals, or any other individual who is trained and the Court believes is able to be an effective CFI.

Can I get a Postnuptial Agreement?

Divorce is rarely pondered before marriage, and when it is, a prenup is commonly used to protect personal assets. Prenups are entered into before the marriage and used to protect bank accounts and other assets in case of divorce, especially when one spouse has significantly more assets than the other. They are now very common, but some couples just cannot fathom entering in such an agreement when they are about to be married. These same people commonly regret not having a prenup down the road when divorce is being contemplated. However, if you are regretting not completing and signing a prenup, you can still enter in a postnuptial agreement. Colorado accepts the validity of postnuptial agreements under Colorado Marital Agreement Act, and supported by In re Estate of Lewin, 595 P.2d 1055, 1057 (Colo.1979), which states "Nuptial agreements, whether executed before or after the marriage, are enforceable in Colorado and a nuptial agreement will be upheld unless the person attacking it proves fraud, concealment, or failure to disclose material information."

Preparing for Mediation with your Attorney

The family law Alternate Dispute Resolution movement has taken a firm hold in Colorado courts. It is required in almost all jurisdictions and even if there is an agreement between the parties to resolve the disputes in their divorce, some counties still make the parties go to mediation. Mediation is usually dreaded by clients and not taken seriously. Most parties do not want to be forced in a room with their spouse to try to resolve their personal disputes and they don't see the value in mediation. However, mediation is an important step in the resolution of the case and it can be a time and cost saving alternative to court. Here are some ways you can work with your attorney to feel prepared to go to mediation and get the results you want.
