Divorce may be the happily ever after

In the beginning, the bride and groom dream of their happily ever after. For some Connecticut couples, this means buying a home, having children and growing old together. For other couples, the happily ever after only turns to happily ever after once the divorce is finalized.

Domestic violence often appears as financial abuse

Just about every little girl in Connecticut dreams of growing up, meeting Prince Charming and living happily ever after. For some, this fairy tale does appear to become reality; they grow up, marry and grow old with their spouse. For others, this fairy tale quickly turns into a nightmare as the fairy tale ends and domestic violence becomes their reality.

Divorce and frivolous spending

Once the tears dry up and reality sets in, it is time to analyze the situation and decide the best way to move forward. Divorce is usually not an easy process; however, most Connecticut individuals make it through and find a way to create a new life for themselves. While there are many issues that need to be considered, the financial ones are often the ones that can be of greatest immediate concern.

Child support owed by reportedly reluctant adoptive parent

In today's society, many Connecticut marriages include children from previous relationships. Sometimes the other biological parent remains a part of the children's lives; however, sometimes that parent has no contact with the children. In this case, it may be in the family's best interest for the stepparent to adopt the children, which can provide a sense of family and belonging, and it can also open the door to child support issues in the event of a divorce.
