Tips to creating an effective parenting plan

When Connecticut parents get divorced, both they and their children face a period of adjustment. The full ramifications of this should be taken into consideration when creating a parenting plan. Parents should consider that children have never had to live in separate households before. Therefore, it is important to be sensitive to the emotional as well as the logistical hurdles that they may encounter when creating a custody or visitation arrangement.

Higher divorce risk linked to women's serious illness

"In sickness and in health, till death do us part." These words are a famous part of the marriage vows taken by many people in Connecticut. Even with the best of intentions, however, serious illness can place a major burden on a marriage. This may be especially true when the underlying relationship is already strained or unhappy. Many people do not contemplate the difficulties that can arise when one person becomes seriously ill during a marriage. While one may expect that divorce is more likely in case of either partner's illness, statistics show that the actual results are highly gendered.

Financial advisers contribute greatly to divorce planning

Emotional dissatisfaction typically motivates people in Connecticut to seek divorces, but the process requires an intense examination of marital and individual finances. People from all income levels generally benefit from the guidance of financial planners and accountants. A person going through a divorce might need to find new advisers to gain impartial perspectives instead of relying on service providers hired during the marriage.

January leads to an increased interest in divorce

The first full week of January marks a time when divorce filings tend to surge in Connecticut and throughout the country. People like to start the divorce process in January because the new year represents a chance to get a fresh start in life. It is also just after the holiday season when some finally realize that they can't remain in their current relationships anymore.

How children benefit from joint custody

Parents in Connecticut who are getting divorced will need to consider how child custody will be handled. In the past, it was thought that children did better under the care of their mothers. Experts warned that children who spent overnight time with their fathers during their younger years could experience behavior and other challenges.
