Family Law: Britney Spears to pay more child support

Celebrity divorces are often very different than the divorces of the rest of the population: assets are often much larger, and the public lifestyle causes special circumstances. The basic terms of their divorces are, however, the same terms that must be settled by all navigating the family law process. One of the most important terms that must be agreed upon, whether the couple is in California or Connecticut, is child support. Britney Spears and ex-husband, Kevin Federline, have just reached a settlement that will modify the terms of their child support agreement.

What qualifies as parental kidnapping?

Parents often disagree strongly about where children should live or whether or not it is good for a child to go on a certain trip. In some cases, one parent may actively prevent the other parent from spending court-ordered time with a child, which is a fairly serious violation that can lead to criminal charges.

Child custody options in Connecticut

The most difficult decision parents going through divorce face is determining the custody arrangement for their children. Houses can be sold, cars can be replaced, new marriages may follow, but the children are irreplaceable. Parents need to know what their options are before they can make the best decision for their children. There are several different child custody options utilized in Connecticut.

Divorce and annulment are very different creatures

There is a distinct difference between getting an annulment and getting a divorce. Although both are appropriate means of formally dissolving a marriage, annulment basically declares that the marriage was never legal in the first place. Divorce ends a marriage that was, in fact, deemed lawful to begin with.  A religious annulment in Connecticut is wholly apart from a divorce or annulment under the law.

Family law: Is a prenup a recipe for a happy marriage?

Prenuptial agreements don't have the stigma attached to them that they used to have. In fact, these contracts, which are under the family law umbrella in Connecticut, can actually serve to make a marriage happier. All couples who tie the knot believe that they have found their lifelong partners. That's not always the case, however, so a prenuptial agreement is a safeguard for the "what if it doesn't work out" of marriage and doesn't have to be a romance wrecker.
