Men can be victims of domestic violence too

When Connecticut residents come across stories of spousal or domestic abuse, many assume that the abuser is a man and the victim a woman. Some cases of domestic abuse are, in fact, perpetrated by women; at least 2 percent. When a man in another state called police last year, claiming allegations of domestic violence, police officers assumed the same thing.

Social status has no impact on Connecticut child custody cases

The breakup of a relationship can create a feeling of uncertainty in Connecticut children and a bitter war between the parents. Some adults can work through the issues and reach a child custody agreement that works well for all parties involved. Some relationships are so weighed down with a history of hurt feelings and resentfulness that the battle between the adults can rage on and cause delays in the finalization of legal issues, like child support and child custody. A very public breakup between Rob Kardashian and his ex-fiancé Blac Chyna has finally reached a settlement with regard to custody and child support of their infant daughter.

Child custody and shared parenting in Connecticut

Divorce can be upsetting for adults, and it can also be traumatic for any children involved. The separation of parents can often leave kids wondering why, how and if they did anything to cause the split. Connecticut parents going through a divorce can ease the stress and burden of uncertainty for kids during a separation by considering shared parenting with regard to child custody.  

Victims of domestic violence in Connecticut are not alone

Relationships can often start out wonderfully, but they can be tricky and difficult for each partner to navigate. Disagreements and personality differences can bring out the worst in some people and, sometimes, a tendency toward violence that the other partner may not have been aware of at the beginning of the courtship. When domestic violence becomes an issue within a Connecticut couple's relationship, finding a way out is an important and often lifesaving necessity.
