James Cordes Writes for Avvo
February 8, 2017
Attorney James wrote a post for Avvo recently about sexual harassment allegations – and how you can react if divorce is on the table.
“While finding out about a spouse’s infidelity is sure to spark anger, remember that your actions now can have long-lasting consequences. Accusations of domestic violence will likely be factored into a judge’s decision regarding your fitness to be a parent, so getting into a physical fight with your spouse could lead to losing ground when it comes to arguing for custody of your children in a divorce. In a custody fight, if the court finds that you committed domestic violence, the law directs the court to enter orders that almost always disfavor the perpetrator of domestic violence when allocating parenting time and decision-making.”

TheStreet featured Marc Kaplan’s take on what divorce can mean for your debt accounts and your credit score.
“Any time you have joint ownership of an account, whether that be an investment account, bank account, credit card or loan, you’re ultimately responsible for keeping the account current and you cannot rely on the other person on the account to meet that responsibility,” says Marc Kaplan, divorce attorney at Kaplan Law in Denver, Col. “So, unless the account is paid off and closed, you remain ultimately responsible to the bank, credit card company, or other entity.”
Marc Kaplan Profiled in Huffington Post
December 15, 2017
A recent article in the Huffington Post profiling healthcare and legal professionals featured Marc Kaplan, describing what drives him to do the work he does.
“I became a trial attorney because I saw so many instances of people being mistreated, taken advantage of, being voiceless and powerless.
