Legal Answers
605 Questions Answered
Q. can a court approved separation agreement signed by my spouse be modified by her
A: She can file it. However, usually the court will not change a property division order. You should get a lawyer to help you with this.
Q. If there is a rental agreement would property have to be split in a divorce?
A: Colorado is NOT a Community property state. Marital property is to be divided "equitably", which means "fairly', not necessarily "equally". The appreciation that occurs during the marriage is marital property. I do not think a rental agreement would make any difference. You could do a marital agreement if he would agree. A marital agreement could provide that you retain your interest in this property. This is like a prenuptial agreement, but done after you are married.
Q. Is an Intent to File Parenting Plan Changes signed by both parties and notarized an enforceable temporary order?
A: Your agreement can not be enforced as a court order until/unless the court approves it and makes it an order of the court. You should be able to file it on your own.
