Married Colorado politicians set to divorce

On Behalf of | Nov 22, 2018 | High Asset Divorce |

Divorce is a difficult enough prospect for Coloradans without career and financial factors entering the mix. However, this is unavoidable with a significant number of cases. This can be a high asset divorce or a divorce of more modest means, but when it is a high-profile couple, there are considerations that must be factored in along with the basics of property division, spousal support, child support and more. Having legal assistance is one of the key factors to having all the necessary information and achieving a successful result.

A member of U.S. congress and his wife, a state representative, have decided to divorce. The congressman and his wife decided to part ways in early November. A statement was released by the congressman’s office to alert the public. He had just been reelected to his position in the recent election. His wife was reelected to her district as well. The couple married more than two decades ago when his mother set them up on a date. Following their marriage, she had paused her personal endeavors as a businesswoman and baker. Shortly thereafter, she started her own political rise.

While politicians might not be considered high earners, they do make a good wage and many were successful in private business before entering public life. This can lead to issues that are part of a high asset divorce such as pension plans, properties, asset portfolios and more. With any high-profile couple, the emotional impact of a divorce is magnified by the public nature of the parting. To avoid the pitfalls that often accompany a public divorce and the bringing to light of what led to the dispute and decision to divorce, having legal help is a must.

A U.S. congressman and his state representative wife are divorcing. While they might not be “famous” in the classic sense of the word, they are still prominent people whose divorce will be more complicated due to that simple fact. As with any divorce, it is imperative to have legal assistance to complete the process and deal with the inevitable issues that will arise. Calling an experienced attorney is first and foremost in a case.
