Guatemalan President and First Lady Divorce

The Guatemalan president Alvaro Colom and his wife Sandra Torres have filed for divorce by mutual consent in a move that will allow her to run in the upcoming election for the presidency.

According to Article 186 of the Guatemalan Constitution, the immediate and other relatives of the president cannot attempt to run for the presidency. While no statements have been made by either the president or the first lady regarding the divorce filing, Torres recently announced her decision to become a presidential candidate for the UNE party and the Great National Alliance.

Previously, Colom stated that a divorce from his wife in order to allow her to run for the presidency was not an option, backed by statements made from UNE spokesman Fernando Barillas, who said that news regarding any separation was "an invention" of candidacy opponents.

In most cases, divorces can be costly, stressful and extensive processes. Whenever a divorce is filed mutually however, and is considered a collaborative divorce, the process is much easier, and can be completed in a much shorter period. By working with your spouse throughout the divorce process and negotiating amicably, matters such as child custodyalimony and  equitable distribution can be completed much quicker without any additional added stresses.

These guys worked hard for me....
The attorneys at Hopper Law Firm PLLC are professional & personable, putting me at ease right away over an uncomfortable matter. I've met with Kevin & Brad over the course of my case; both are very down-to-earth, compassionate, & do an excellent job of explaining things in layman terms. It took a while as I understand these things do, but in the end, I was pleasantly surprised to receive a settlement greater than I had expected. These guys worked hard for me. Thank you!
