Understanding the financial implications of a Connecticut divorce

Relationships have their ups and downs, and most couples know when the downs have hit rock bottom with no way to go back up. What was once a lifelong commitment founded on a friendship and love can deteriorate, and severing the ties that bind may be the only option. The monetary aspect of a Connecticut divorce and what follows may not be given a thought until the inevitable is fast approaching. Money is property and dividing up the marital assets is one of the biggest aspects of a divorce. Making the preparations, should a divorce occur, does not guarantee that it will happen, but it does offer a sense of financial security should it become a reality.

Shared child custody advocates may impact Connecticut family laws

When most couples begin the process of divorce, if children are involved, the parents begin to look at shared parenting. This approach to child custody is gaining traction in many states across the country. Recently, a big push by parental advocate groups has led to more than 20 states, including Connecticut, to consider adopting bills that make shared parenting the default choice when a divorce becomes final.

Connecticut parents take a break from divorce during the holidays

Separating from a spouse can be unsettling, but it can be traumatic for any young children involved. A divorce can often leave questions, uncertainty and blame for little ones to carry. During the holiday season, some Connecticut parents forgo the sentiment and often interfere with the other parent's visitation. These actions can carry consequences that have a lasting negative effect on the relationship with one's child.

Domestic violence resources available in Connecticut

As the weather turns cold, many shelters throughout Connecticut are preparing for an influx of residents. Many assume the homeless that frequent the shelters suffer from alcohol or drug abuse. What many fail to realize is that most who turn up at the shelter in need of a warm bed and food are women and children who are victims of domestic violence.
