Dealing with the financial implications of divorce

As a general rule, divorce is expensive. Connecticut residents who have been through the divorce process understand that splitting marital assets can be both frustrating and challenging without the proper support. This is why it is so important for both parties to fully understand the implications the move will have on their financial status, both currently and in the future.

Many Connecticut residents have seen first-hand what a costly divorce battle in a courtroom setting can do, particularly to children of the couple seeking to dissolve a marriage.

Divorce issues endemic to so-called "gray divorce"

More and more Americans over the age of 50 are choosing the "gray divorce" option in ending long-term marriages once children are grown and out of the family home.

It is important for both spouses to understand what is involved in a gray divorce, or any divorce choice they choose to make, in advance of filing.

In the modern era, nearly every American has some form of social media presence: a Twitter feed or a Facebook profile to name only a few.
