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.

Are Connecticut millenials thinking about divorce before marriage

As many millennials begin to contemplate marriage, one aspect that many Connecticut couples are looking at is that of a prenuptial agreement. Even though a divorce is not something any newly engaged couple wants to think about, the reality and statistics suggest otherwise. But against what many believe to be a disregard for traditions and a lack of loyalty, the reality is that many millennials are simply delaying marriage and have a more realistic view of the reality of marriage and what can happen.

Protecting business assets during a Connecticut divorce

Protecting one's assets during a separation can seem overwhelming. As more Connecticut women dive into the responsibility of business ownership, the thought of breaking the company apart during a divorce can be heart wrenching. Understanding the unique financial challenges that the end of a marriage can impose is crucial to ensuring that the division of assets is fair and comprehensive.

A toxic divorce in Connecticut can be an emotional roller coaster

When a relationship has run its course and a couple decides they can no longer move forward together, separating is usually the next step to follow. As the marriage dissolves, most Connecticut couples find it in their best interest to find a common ground and make the divorce amicable. Instances can come up where one spouse will make the process of severing all ties hurtful, harmful and toxic.

Is mediation right for a Connecticut divorce?

Marriages dissolve for many reasons, and mediation may seem like the best option to handle the separation. Untangling the finances and designating child custody and spousal support can be a daunting task even when couples are willing to work together to seek the best outcome under the circumstances. While mediation provides a less costly and more civil approach to a Connecticut divorce, the option is not one that is always advisable.

Feeling like divorce is unfair? This might help.

Some Connecticut couples decide that the best solution to their marital problems is to sever their legal ties in court.

Since not every marriage lasts a lifetime, it's crucial that Connecticut residents and those in other states know where to turn for support when problems arise.

In fact, many people navigate challenges in divorce that are just as stressful (if not more) than the problems they faced during marriage.

What if the kids stayed put and parents move out after divorce?

Many Connecticut children go from residing with both parents to moving back and forth between single parent households when their parents' marriages end. Although some children are able to adapt to their new lifestyles others suffer tremendous emotional trauma. Since most parents want what's best for their children, especially in divorce, some are trying a new type of parenting plan that allows children to remain in the same home they shared when their parents were married.

Are you worried about hidden assets in divorce?

When you decided to sever your marital ties in a Connecticut court, you probably imagined various types of scenarios that might occur during proceedings.

Maybe everything would run smoothly and achieving an amicable settlement would be much easier than you assumed.

Obstacles that get in the way of post divorce happiness
