Dividing funds in college savings plans during a divorce process

Many parents start college savings plans for their kids in anticipation of them getting good educations. But when parents' marriages end in divorce and assets and debts are being divided, the question is, what happens to those college funds? The last thing Connecticut parents would want to have happen is jeopardizing their children's educations, so careful consideration should be given to what happens to these funds.

Tax strategies that can help in the divorce process

The end of a marriage can be devastating even under the most positive circumstances. Connecticut couples who are going through a divorce can face a number of challenges, one of which can include finances. But there are certain tax strategies that can make the going easier and reaching a settlement less stressful, especially when the process is handled more like a business deal in many respects.

Family law: Children of wealth and prenuptial agreements

Children who are born into wealthy families may need to take extra precautions when the time comes for them to marry. Connecticut family law has the tools for people to ensure their assets are protected, and when it comes to marriage, such tools include prenuptial agreements. No one approaches marriage with divorce in mind, but sometimes, taking precautions might be a wise move.

Child custody: Fostering relationships with non-custodial parents

Many experts have gone on record to say that children do better emotionally and even physically when both parents play integral roles in their lives. When it comes to child custody in a divorce situation, Connecticut parents need to set aside their differences when co-parenting their children -- whether they have joint custody or if there is one custodial parent with the other having visitation rights. It is incumbent upon parents to do what is in the best interests of their children and barring anything that might endanger a child, that usually means having a meaningful relationship with both parents.

Technology and how it can help in divorce

Technology is everywhere and seems to be rapidly becoming a more ubiquitous presence in everyday life. While many technological advances may not be welcome nor seem useful to many people, apps are developed every day that can make lives easier in Connecticut. One group of apps can actually simplify divorce and relieve some of the stress it can put on one's children.
