Family law: Helping children process major life changes

There is nothing more important to parents than the well-being of their children. Family law in Connecticut looks to put children's best interests first and that means parents need to see to their kids' overall well-being, which includes their emotional health. Some children have difficulty processing monumental changes in their lives and that could include the divorce of their parents, death of a loved one or a major move. It's important that parents allow their children to have a voice to process these changes. 

Family law: Latest child support stats released

The latest child support statistics have been released by the U.S. Census Bureau and they show how many single parents receive support, how many funds are owed and how many of those funds are actually received by payees. Connecticut family law oversees child support payments in the state. Resident payors and payees figure in the overall statistics collected by the bureau.

Family law: Methods of ascertaining paternity over the years

The ways in which a child's paternal father is ascertained have changed over the past decades. Many issues are connected to a child's paternity under Connecticut family law rules, and there are a number of reasons why a child's parentage should be known, especially when it comes to child support. Silent film star Charlie Chaplin knew too well what that could mean having been fingered by his young protégé as being the father of her daughter -- something Chaplin vehemently denied.

Family law: Children of wealth and prenuptial agreements

Children who are born into wealthy families may need to take extra precautions when the time comes for them to marry. Connecticut family law has the tools for people to ensure their assets are protected, and when it comes to marriage, such tools include prenuptial agreements. No one approaches marriage with divorce in mind, but sometimes, taking precautions might be a wise move.

Family law: common misconceptions about prenuptial agreements

Prenuptial agreements are one of the most misunderstood aspects of the marriage process. While they have received a bad reputation by the general public in the past, prenuptial agreements are becoming increasingly common in Connecticut. Although family law attorneys have seen an increase in the number of couples seeking a prenuptial agreement, there are still many common misconceptions about the valuable document.

Family law: Marriage contracts can strengthen relationships

Marriage contracts can actually make marriages stronger. Under family law, Connecticut couples are able to fashion either pre or postnuptial contracts that open the lines of communication regarding issues that could cause problems in the future. When a couple approach a marriage contract with the notion that having one means they want the best for each other no matter what happens, it may be accepted as a necessary part of the financial aspect of the relationship.

Family Law: Why prenuptial agreements are important

Prenuptial agreements are becoming more and more common for the average American. Once thought to be only for the wealthy, prenups are now common in family law courts all across the country, including Connecticut. There are many benefits to having a prenup, and the rich and famous aren't the only ones with interests to protect.

Family Law: Britney Spears to pay more child support

Celebrity divorces are often very different than the divorces of the rest of the population: assets are often much larger, and the public lifestyle causes special circumstances. The basic terms of their divorces are, however, the same terms that must be settled by all navigating the family law process. One of the most important terms that must be agreed upon, whether the couple is in California or Connecticut, is child support. Britney Spears and ex-husband, Kevin Federline, have just reached a settlement that will modify the terms of their child support agreement.

Family law: Is a prenup a recipe for a happy marriage?

Prenuptial agreements don't have the stigma attached to them that they used to have. In fact, these contracts, which are under the family law umbrella in Connecticut, can actually serve to make a marriage happier. All couples who tie the knot believe that they have found their lifelong partners. That's not always the case, however, so a prenuptial agreement is a safeguard for the "what if it doesn't work out" of marriage and doesn't have to be a romance wrecker. 

Family law: Divorced parents and disciplining children

Raising children can be hard even when both parents are living in the same household. But when parents are divorced and the kids are shuffled between two abodes, issues surrounding discipline may crop up. Even if Connecticut parents have issues between themselves, when they put those on the back burner and focus on their children's best interests, it may be much easier to co-parent using family law guidelines, and that includes what to do when it comes to correcting children's untoward behavior.
