Property division should be logical not emotional

One common mistake that some Connecticut residents may make when going through a divorce is dealing with asset division from an emotional standpoint. It is very easy for people to approach property division from a sentimental angle, but doing so can leave them with assets they cannot afford. They may also miss out on property that would have put them in a better financial position following the end of their marriage.

Things to keep in mind when moving with children post-divorce

The divorce process can be very painful for both parties, but it can become even more delicate and sensitive when children are involved. It isn't uncommon after a divorce for one parent to consider moving back to the area in which they grew up or where they have family. If one of the parents is then considering relocation after the divorce, it can also impact custody and visitation agreements. There are some things that should be kept in mind if considering relocating with a child after a divorce.

Family law and fairness

When a Connecticut court decides child custody cases, the judge's overriding concern is supposed to be the best interests of the child or children involved. It may not always seem this way when custody cases are finally resolved. This is often because the law favors granting custody to the biological parents of children whenever possible. Anyone who believes that the best interests of a child are served by granting custody to someone other than the child's biological parent may have to prove that the biological parent presents an imminent danger to the safety and well being of the child.

Importance of asking questions during divorce

During the initial consultation with their attorneys, people going through a divorce need to ask the right questions to understand what they could face when they meet with their spouses or go to court. Many of the questions they need to ask relate to spousal support and child custody and support laws in their state. Knowing what they need to do and how judges in their state handle divorce can help people in Connecticut and other states have an idea of how they need to proceed, especially during a high asset divorce.
