Understanding divorce process helpful for Connecticut couples

January is well-known as being the most popular month to finalize a separation. Once the holidays have passed and the new fiscal year is underway, the divorce proceedings can be undertaken without disrupting family traditions and at a time when it will be most beneficial for tax purposes. However, as Connecticut residents are well aware, divorce can still be a challenging process, and understanding the nuances of that process can mean the difference between a difficult transition and a relatively streamlined one.

Perhaps the most important part of the divorce process is understanding what's going on. So-called "legalese" can be difficult to navigate even for a professional, so asking questions and clarifying concepts is vitally important to having a full understanding of what one is being asked to agree to. Additionally, asking for clarification when it comes to advice can also be useful as it can help further illuminate the process.

It is also important to remember, and to do the best job possible in adjusting to, the fact that life changes after divorce. Readjusting to single life and a single income, as well as to child custody and alimony when relevant -- these can be difficult challenges to address. However, seeking support is typically beneficial as it can help bolster resolve and expedite the process so one's new life can begin more quickly.

Divorce is not a process any newly-married couple hopes to experience. However, as Connecticut residents are aware, it is sometimes the best option under the circumstances. Ensuring both parties are fully aware of their rights and responsibilities throughout the process can go a long way toward ensuring an amicable and equitable settlement.
