Couples don't have to use divorce mediation

Facing the end of a marriage is an emotional time. Perhaps making it even more stressful is the barrage of media coverage telling Connecticut couples that divorce mediation is the way the way to go. In fact, the media may actually border on shaming people into feeling as though their divorce will not be successful if they end up in court.

Is your spouse attempting to invalidate your prenup in a divorce?

Before getting married, you may have spent a substantial amount of time working through the creation of a prenuptial agreement. The goal then was to sort out some financial issues and provide a plan for dividing assets and debts should the marriage end. Now that you are in the initial stages of a divorce, your spouse is asking a Connecticut court to invalidate your prenup. Do you know why?

Family law issues: Overcoming an objection to an adoption

Many Connecticut residents have children outside of wedlock. When the relationship with the father of a child ends, the mother may find love again and marry. Her husband may wish to adopt her child, but the biological father may come forward to object. A family law attorney could prove helpful under these circumstances.

Dividing retirement in a divorce? Don't get pegged by the IRS

When Connecticut residents begin building up their retirement accounts at work, they're probably aware that there is a pretty hefty penalty for withdrawing money from it prior to retirement. During a divorce, retirement accounts, or at least a portion of them, could be considered part of the marital estate. Dividing those accounts could lead to a significant financial impact if not done correctly.

Take control of your divorce with the collaborative process

One of the strongest feelings that many Connecticut residents feel when their marriages end is a loss of control. The traditional courtroom process of divorce does not do anything to alleviate that feeling, either. However, you could take advantage of another way to divorce that lets you stay in control of your destiny -- the collaborative process.

What does an equitable distribution of assets in a divorce mean?

One of the main concerns of many Connecticut residents who are ending their marriages is what happens to their property. They might have heard that this is an equitable distribution state, but may not know what that means. Not having at least a working understanding of how property is divided in a divorce can cause unnecessary stress and frustration.

Issues surrounding your children before and after your divorce

Many Connecticut parents think that the end of their marriage affects them the most. However, in most cases, it is the children and their issues in the divorce that end up taking center stage. Once dividing the marital assets and alimony are addressed, parents must turn their attentions to custody and child support. These issues often require parental attention well after the divorce is final.

Billionaire couple disagree on divorce settlement

For many people, the decision to end a marriage comes after a great deal of consideration and reflection. Once the decision is made, couples in Connecticut are often able to come to an amicable agreement regarding how to divide their assets. Unfortunately, one out-of-state billionaire couple is said to be unable to come to an agreement regarding their divorce settlement.
