How virtual visitation works in Connecticut child custody cases

In the technological age there are different ways that divorcing parents can spend time with their children. Part of that might include virtual visitation when kids in Connecticut can visit their parents via Skype, webcam or with other computer software. This sort of visitation may also be written into a parenting agreement or mandated through a child custody order, and it is usually a noncustodial parent who has moved away that uses this type of visitation.

Leave custody and child support out of prenuptial agreements

Many couples, especially those with significant assets, choose to create prenuptial agreements that outline their individual property and detail certain guidelines and expectations about financial behavior and ownership. These agreements are tremendously useful even to couples who never divorce, allowing each spouse to protect his or her property from the other's debts.

Prudent ideas about the matrimonial home after divorce

Marital separation can put a big dent in finances. Financial burdens may cause even more stress than there is already. A marital home is likely the biggest shared asset of a Connecticut couple, so it may be a good idea to think about how it can help in an otherwise dicey divorce situation. If one spouse wants to sell the home, perhaps the other could buy him or her out.

How divorce impacts retirement in Connecticut

Unfortunately, marriage today doesn't always mean til death do part. Some couples who have been married for years find themselves in the untenable situation of having to discuss divorce. Connecticut couples who are aged 50 and over and who are facing a life-changing event may be wondering how divorce will affect their retirement plans. The fact is, since 1990, what is known as gray divorce has doubled; in those circumstances, it seems the longer a couple was married, the more retirement might be affected.

Can a husband's job status lead to divorce?

Losing a job can have disastrous effects in many areas of life. Experts say divorce could likely be added to the list if a husband becomes unemployed. A Harvard research study shows that if a man in a domestic partnership or marriage loses his job, he could also lose his relationship. This could also be true for Connecticut couples. 

Life after divorce in Connecticut can be peaceful

As the song says, breaking up is hard to do. But life after -- and even during -- divorce can eventually be happy and peaceful again. Living life as a single in Connecticut can take a little getting used to. Happiness is a choice, no matter what life throws into the mix. Being mindful and living in the moment might help with the stresses brought on by the end of a marriage.
