Child support and college education in Connecticut

Parents who divorce usually work out how they plan to provide for their child during the divorce or custody negotiation. However, the specifics are not always as clear when it comes to college education. This is especially true for parents who split while the child is still quite young and his or her potential college education is still many years away.

Can online information affect a divorce in Connecticut?

In this technological age, much of how people communicate with each other involves electronic devices, whether they be cell phones or computers. Social media is commonplace and some married people have gotten into trouble in their technological communications either by sending what might be construed as inappropriate text messages or by sharing personal information online. Connecticut couples thinking about divorce may want to know what happens to all that data should their marriages crash on the rocks.

Family law in Connecticut: Can cousins marry?

The old adage, kissin' cousins, can be taken quite literally in some states, though less so in others. Despite what people think about the moral aspects of first cousins marrying, one of the states that allows such marriages under family law rules is Connecticut. Most of the concerns center around genetics with the assumption that cousins may share similar DNA, which could possibly mean possible developmental problems should they have children.

Divorce in Connecticut: How to break it to a spouse

Gone are the days when one partner in a marriage had to ask the other for a divorce. That's not to say it's always easy to tell a spouse it's over. If the marriage has been overtly sad and bad for some time, bringing up divorce may not be such a surprise. But if spouses in Connecticut have been living in a state of indifference or apathy, it may be more difficult to broach the subject.
