Women want financial reassurance before deciding to divorce

There is no time greater to take stock of one's financial picture than when a marriage is not on solid footing. Women in Connecticut who are on the brink of divorce from their spouses may be looking for answers when it comes to facing their financial future as single individuals. Some have to learn how to make wise financial decisions on their own. 

Second marriages more likely to end in divorce, experts say

First-time marriages may not be lucky for some individuals. Connecticut residents may be interested to know that recent statistics show that people who marry for the second time (or more), may be facing an even greater chance of divorce. Marriage therapists suggest that people who marry more than once have a harder time keeping those marriages intact.

The major issues that can lead to divorce

There can be many reasons a couple decides their marriage is no longer working. However, there are some commonalities among many couples who decide that divorce is their only option. Connecticut couples likely share some of these reasons with others around the globe and one of the most contentious issues seems to be that of finances. 

Actress Ava Amurri and husband head for divorce after 8 years

Actress Susan Sarandon's actress daughter Ava Amurri has separated from her husband of eight years. The couple, along with their two children, recently moved into a renovated, historical home in Connecticut, but they are apparently heading for divorce. 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.

Tips for a less stressful divorce

No couple gets married with the intent of eventually ending the marriage. 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.

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.
