While divorce rate drops, divorce is still an issue

It may come as a surprise to some people, but the divorce rate in the United States is not actually on the rise. In fact, Connecticut residents may be shocked to discover that recent numbers suggest a measurable drop in the rate of divorce nation-wide. However, as compelling as these numbers might be, they may not be as accurate as first thought. 

Dividing retirement accounts during divorce

Dividing assets accrued over the course of a marriage can be one of the most stressful parts of a separation. Connecticut residents who have been through a divorce will understand that money is often the biggest point of contention in a divorce. This is why it is so important for both parties to be educated on the state and federal laws that govern the division of complex assets, such as retirement savings.

Current statistics state that half of all married couples in the United States will choose to end their unions at some point.

Gaining an understanding of the legal process and basic laws and regulations regarding a variety of issues, such as property division, can help simplify matters and make negotiations and a transition to a new lifestyle less stressful.
