How financial assets are divided in a Connecticut divorce

It is never easy to have to split your property with someone else, but some things are harder to walk away from than others. Leaving a home feels like walking away from memories, leaving a dog feels like losing a family member and being forced to spend time away from children can be just about unbearable. While it stings to have to divide financial assets, at least there is no emotional attachment to the money itself. If a Connecticut couple cannot come to an agreement on the division of their assets during their divorce, the court will do it for them.

Children's stress can be minimized in divorce

In Connecticut and elsewhere, divorce is almost always a source of stress. Even in the most amicable of divorces there are emotions that have to be settled. Lives are changed, plans are changed, dreams are changed and everything is changed, so emotions are completely normal. The two spouses getting divorced aren't the only ones who have an emotional investment in the situation; their children do, too. With some work and dedication, the emotional impact of divorce on the child can be minimized.

Family Law: Why prenuptial agreements are important

Prenuptial agreements are becoming more and more common for the average American. Once thought to be only for the wealthy, prenups are now common in family law courts all across the country, including Connecticut. There are many benefits to having a prenup, and the rich and famous aren't the only ones with interests to protect.

Millennials cause a decline in U.S. divorce rate

Millennials, with their seemingly very different take on nearly everything in life, get blamed for a lot. It seems like, in Connecticut and across the country, they are responsible for creating a larger culture shift than many of the prior generations. A recent study indicates that they have chosen yet another way to veer from the paths set by their parents and grandparents. Millennials may have actually helped to cause a decline in the U.S. divorce rate.

Can Connecticut fathers obtain child custody?

Navigating the divorce process can be a scary, lonely and confusing process. It is even scarier when a parent is unsure how the separation will affect his relationship with his children. Often, fathers assume that they don't have the same rights as mothers when it comes to child custody. In order to ensure they have the best chance of obtaining a favorable outcome in their child custody order, Connecticut fathers will want to know how the state courts determine child custody arrangements.
