Family law legal needs

Parents in Connecticut might be interested to hear that although the child support enforcement system makes efforts to collect child support from parents, there is currently no system in place for requiring formal visitation arrangements to be in place between parents. When parents get a divorce, such arrangements are usually established as part of the divorce decree. However, for parents that were never married, formal visitation arrangements are not required as a precondition of receiving government assistance benefits, as is often the case with child support.

Dividing retirement assets in a divorce

Couples in Connecticut who are getting a divorce might need to consider how they are going to split up their retirement assets. Sometimes when people are going through divorces, they want to go ahead and get them over with so they can put their emotional baggage behind them and move on with their lives. However, in their rush to end things, they might put off addressing important issues that could come back to haunt them later on.

Connecticut divorce passes 10-year mark

The divorce case of a former Connecticut financial adviser and his wife has been ongoing for more than 10 years, and it shows no signs of letting up, according to a recent piece. It has seen almost 600 motions and rulings, and evidence presented of insider trading ended up destroying a multibillion-dollar hedge fund. The case has court dates scheduled through the next two months, and it now centers on disputes over child custody and visitation and the payment of expert fees.

Asset division a complex process fraught with technicalities

Going through a divorce can make for a tough time, emotionally, for any Connecticut couple; however, many find that the division of assets can be a challenging matter in itself. When a divorce proceeding starts without warning, assets could take longer to divide if they are tied up in home mortgages, loans or credit card collateral.
