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.

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.

Divorce: The difference between child support and alimony

When a couple decides their marriage is over, there may be a number of questions each person has that need some clarification. Divorce can be complex and Connecticut residents in this position need to know that all financial support isn't the same, nor is it equal. For instance, there are significant differences between spousal support (alimony) and child support.

Is money the culprit behind most divorce cases?

Money can either bring out the best or the worst in many people. It seems that it can be the root of all evil in a divorce situation. Many Connecticut couples cite money problems as one of the main reasons their marriages erode. Recent studies have shown that financially disadvantaged couples were more apt to divorce rather than those who were more financially stable. 

The financial impacts of a divorce in Connecticut

People whose marriages are coming to an end may have to dig deep into their pockets. Connecticut couples who are thinking about divorce may be interested to know that the average cost of a divorce today hovers around $15,000 per person, according to recent statistics. There are other considerations, too, besides the potential financial costs. 

TV personality Larry King files for divorce from wife number 7

Larry King and his wife of 22 years are calling it quits. Connecticut residents may know Larry King best for his television talk show. His 7th wife, Shawn, said that her husband's recent filing for a divorce came as a surprise to her. Larry, 85, and Shawn, 59, have two grown sons.

Structuring compensation during a divorce settlement

Understanding how income is figured when a couple's marriage ends may make it easier financially -- at least for the person paying support. Divorce in Connecticut comes with its own set of issues and some of them involve spousal and/or child support payments. Knowing how various types of income can affect those payments may make coming to a settlement less stressful. 

August popular with Connecticut residents to decide to divorce

Many people get that free and easy feeling in summer months. That may or may not be the reason that this time of year is when many people decide to divorce. With kids out of school for summer and vacations in high gear, Connecticut couples seem to be able to make the decision to end their marriages in the heat of the season since thoughts of divorce peak in the summertime.

Safeguarding a credit rating in a divorce situation

It is never wise for one to leave finances to chance. It's a particularly unwise thing for Connecticut residents to do when they're in the throes of divorce proceedings. It is likely that those who are separating or divorcing will be moving from a two to a one-income household. But there are steps individuals can take to safeguard their credit ratings in order to avoid ending up in financial distress.

Divorce: How to decide if a marriage is really over

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.
