Rocky Mountain UFCW Unions & Employers Health Benefit Plan ADMINISTRATION OFFICE P.O. BOX 447 Arvada, Co 80001-0447 (303)-430-9334 CONSEQUENCES OF COMMON LAWA common law marriage is treated the same as a ceremonial marriage (or marriage for which youreceived a license). Therefore, you should think carefully before completing this affidavit. Theconsequences of marriage apply equally to common law marriage, including: 1. Once formed, a common law marriage can be terminated only by death or divorce. There is no such thing as a "common law divorce." You must go to a Court and obtain a Court order of divorce. Upon divorce, either spouse may be required to pay separate maintenance, attorneys fees, child support for any child of the marriage, and the Court is free to apportion marital property on an equitable basis. Marital property includes any property acquired during the marriage regardless of how titled and the increase in value of the separate property of either spouse. 2. The common law spouse is entitled to inherit from the deceased spouse and cannot be disinherited. 3. In order to sign up another spouse under this Plan, we will require you to produce a Court order of divorce or death certificate.
