The latest child support statistics have been released by the U.S. Census Bureau and they show how many single parents receive support, how many funds are owed and how many of those funds are actually received by payees. Connecticut family law oversees child support payments in the state. Resident payors and payees figure in the overall statistics collected by the bureau.

Silent film star Charlie Chaplin knew too well what that could mean having been fingered by his young protégé as being the father of her daughter -- something Chaplin vehemently denied.
People who say I do don't do so with the thought that someday they will be saying I don't. But divorce is a part of life for many Connecticut couples. The decision to part ways does not come easily for many couples, and before deciding to file for divorce, individuals might want to ask themselves some difficult questions that weigh the positives and negatives of their situations.
