Many parents start college savings plans for their kids in anticipation of them getting good educations.

Buying the family home in a divorce situation in Connecticut

Even when a marriage has gone sour, there may be many positive emotions connected to the family home. One partner of a Connecticut couple going through a divorce may be thinking of staying in the home to raise the children or in which adult children grew up. But there are questions a spouse should ask if he or she is thinking about buying out the interests of the other partner when it comes to a family home. 

Keeping divorce out of the workplace in Connecticut

There are times when a person's personal life spills over into his or her professional one. It is pretty difficult to keep the fact that one is getting divorced a secret from colleagues at the office. When Connecticut employees find they are fodder for water cooler talk, there are ways in which to manage divorce news among co-workers. A divorce can affect professional life in many ways, some of which include needing to keep lawyer's appointments and possible court appearances.

Finances in divorce need not be overwhelming

Getting a divorce in Connecticut can be a difficult and emotional experience. Every aspect of one's life is about to change and probably none more than one's financial situation. The divorce rate is about 50% for the baby boomer generation, and many of them went directly from their parent's homes to marriage. Some may not have had the experience of managing a single household. There are steps that can be taken to ease the transition.

Divorce takes time and requires focused participation

Ending a marriage is typically not as enjoyable as getting married, but both take a substantial amount of planning. Divorce can take months or even years to complete, depending on the amount of contention and other factors. As a result, Connecticut residents going through this transition certainly want to help it along as smoothly as possible.
