Family law: What happens to kids when in high conflict situations

When parents argue in front of their children, they may be creating harmful, long-term effects. Connecticut family law has the best interests of children at heart and children in the middle of a high-conflict divorce may be emotionally injured just as badly as if they were being physically hurt. Children's brains react differently than adult brains and for them witnessing their parents horribly fighting can feel just like being at the center of the negativity.

Amurri and Kyle Martino are expecting their third child.

Pressing through the financial issues during a divorce

Making ends meet today can be pretty tough. It usually takes two incomes to live reasonably comfortably, so when a Connecticut couple makes the decision to divorce, looking at the financial picture is a necessity. Most likely each person will be moving forward independently on one income and that means the more knowledge each has about the law and finances, the better.

However, this is exactly what happens to nearly half of all married couples in the United States these days. It goes without saying that divorce is one of the most difficult and stressful life events that a person can experience. For those in Connecticut who are going through a divorce, these tips may help make this an easier transition.
