Using social media during divorce can be problematic

Social media is all around us and is endemic to every part of modern life. It follows that many Connecticut residents use the likes of Facebook and Twitter to document different aspects of their lives, but experts warn that use of social media during a divorce should be strictly monitored. Much as prospective employers can glean personal information one might not want known from a public profile, so can a soon-to-be-former spouse.

Women in midst of divorce entitled to more than they might think

The division of marital property as part of a separation can be one of the most stressful parts of the process. Any Connecticut resident who has experienced divorce can attest to the fact that the financial portion of the divorce process is a complicated affair. However, it is important for women in particular to be fully briefed in what they are and are not entitled to during these proceedings, to ensure they are getting a fair share of the marital assets.

Advance preparation for divorce settlements can smooth transition

It is no secret that a separation of any type can be challenging and at times difficult for all parties involved. Many experts agree that preparing in advance for divorce settlement negotiations can help smooth the road towards a quick and equitable end to a marriage. Connecticut residents expecting to seek a divorce are urged to learn as much as possible about the process ahead of embarking on it in order to make sure there are no surprises along the way.

Politician set to divorce after scandal

A prominent former state governor is facing the end of his marriage after a sex scandal damaged his relationship, according to local media. Connecticut residents may be familiar with Eliot Spitzer, the former Attorney General and governor who resigned in the late 2000s after evidence came to light that he had been retaining the services of prostitutes. Now, as he prepares to run for the coveted state Comptroller position, his wife is pursuing divorce options.

Financial disputes can be a red flag for divorce

Couples fight about many different things in the course of a relationship, and many of those fights are perfectly healthy and natural. However, as some Connecticut residents can attest, those fights can sometimes escalate. If they become pervasive, some experts say they can point to a possible divorce in the couple's future.
