Family law: Connecticut teachers and kids' home lives

Most teachers agree that, if their students' parents are divorcing, it's best if they know about it. Although there is nothing under family law in Connecticut that says parents are obliged to tell their children's teachers should they decide to separate, it may be in the best interest of their children, since kids spend a great amount of time around their teachers, and so they can gauge any changes in behavior. However, very few parents actually do tell their kids' teachers about their home lives.

Why some Connecticut couples divorce after decades of marriage

Gray divorce -- a term used for couples who divorce after the age of 50 -- is on the upswing. Gone are the days when divorce was a bad word. Some Connecticut couples who have been married for decades are breaking with the convention of their generation and divorcing rather than continuing to stay in marriages that perhaps haven't worked in years.

Is saving your business a divorce priority?

While no divorce is exactly easy or simple, and every divorce costs something, divorces between middle-aged couples with older children often prove exceptionally difficult to negotiate fairly.

Connecticut divorce: New federal divorce tax penalty

The way alimony is taxed would be changed if a recent tax bill coming out of Washington becomes law. The way things are set up now -- Connecticut included -- is that alimony payments are tax deductible for the former spouse who is paying. The ex spouse who receives the alimony is the one who pays income tax on the funds. But those who divorce if and when the bill becomes law will be privy to a new way of doing things.

Family law in Connecticut: A solid parenting plan can do wonders

With a solid parenting plan, a divorcing couple is on the right path to parent their children in a positive manner even amidst the most stressful circumstances. Family law in Connecticut strives to give parents the means by which they can be good parents to their kids even as separate individuals. A parenting plan is a legally binding document that spells out certain particulars of the lives of children of divorce such as where and with whom they'll be living.
