Some Connecticut couples' divorce situations are in the gray

Some long-time married couples are deciding to call it quits. The reasons for divorce are as personal as marriages themselves. However, it seems a lot of times children hold couples together, and once they've flown the coop, some Connecticut couples realize they have very little in common anymore and begin living separate lives. In these kinds of circumstances, some partners decide to formally end their relationships and decide to divorce.

There are some things that a couple experiencing gray divorce can do to make the process less stressful on themselves and on their family members. Even adult children of divorcing parents may find it hard to swallow that their parents are ending it, particularly when they may have been married for decades. Looking at the financial picture may be the first place to start.

Although individuals would like to think that their soon-to-be former spouses would treat them fairly when it comes to the division of assets, that is not always the case. It may be prudent to enlist the aid of a financial adviser. Lawyers may be able to help in this respect as well in terms of drafting separation agreements and other documents pertaining to the legalities of divorce.

Divorce is not an easy situation under the best of circumstances, and for a couple that has been married for many years, it can be particularly stressful. When each individual receives guidance in the way of legal counsel in Connecticut, he or she may reduce the tension associated with separating, especially if he or she is more than 50 years old. Even when a divorce is gray, the legalities of the process are basically black and white.

  • Thank you Jennifer for handling my divorce. Everything is going well. Get to spend lots of time so far with my boys that makes me happy. Thanks to you again; I wish you and your firm lots of success from this day forward. All the best.
  • Wendy helped guide us through a very difficult and emotional process and was really able to provide an even and fair account for both parties. It's quite evident in her expertise in this area but the way she was able to make you feel safe and secure in a very insecure time goes far beyond her legal prowess. If the two parties are really willing to cooperate and collaborate, she's there to help gain the best possible solution for all involved, especially if there are children.
  • Regardless of how committed one is to the fact that divorce may be imminent and necessary, it is truly one of the most emotional and stressful situations one can experience. It can also be daunting. Wendy has a remarkable ability to cut through the noise and help you focus on the big picture while drilling down on what is most pertinent to your particular situation., they are a formidable team who work collectively with your best interests in mind.
