Family law: What it takes to adopt a child in Connecticut

When a couple or single person is in the position to welcome a child who is not biologically related into the family, it is a joyous occasion. Those Connecticut residents who choose adoption may wish to speak with an attorney experienced in family law before formally entering the adoption process since having some knowledge of the law can ease any stress that may accompany it. Those wishing to adopt a child in Connecticut must make the decision regarding what kind of adoption they would like to pursue: domestic or international adoption; whether they want a newborn child or an older child; or whether they want an open or closed adoption.

How Connecticut couples can keep things amicable during a divorce

Couples making the decision to end their relationships often do so with a range of emotions -- from sadness to hurt to anger. Connecticut couples going through a divorce are able to do so (even when emotions are running high) in an amicable way for the emotional welfare of each individual and for any children they share. There are just a few things to remember about keeping things civil.

Some fathers claim mothers favored in child custody cases

When a couple divorces or separates there are a host of issues about which decisions must be made.

Many fathers, however, have been claiming that they're getting the short end of the stick when it comes to their kids after they've parted ways with their mothers. 

Getting an appraisal is a smart step in your Connecticut divorce

Ensuring a fair outcome in divorce isn't a straightforward process. There are many unique considerations that you need to reflect upon to protect yourself. From determining what assets are separate property to creating a comprehensive list of all the assets you've acquired during marriage, there are many steps you can take to improve how fair the asset division process is.

Divorce: Claiming Social Security on an ex-spouse's work record

A spouse who is no longer married may be able to come by some extra income thanks to his or her former spouse. Some Connecticut individuals who have gone through divorce could collect Social Security benefits through the work record of their former spouses if their circumstances meet certain conditions. For instance, the former spouse needs to be entitled to receive Social Security or disability benefits.
