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...View More

A CFI Report not not pertain to "justice" but rather the best interests of the children. Generally prosecutors are not interested in pursuing issues that arise in civil matters.
