What forms are required for a high-asset divorce with kids?

As you likely already know, divorcing with kids is not as straightforward as divorcing without them. This is so in both high-asset divorces and in divorces with few assets. If you plan to forego attorney representation and do the work yourself, you will face an array of forms to file -- more of them than you would have to file when divorcing without children.

What kind of professionals will strengthen my high asset divorce?

Almost no divorce is easy. Legal issues can arise in all areas of divorce from child custody and support to alimony and property division.

Such a battle puts you in a vulnerable position regarding your divorce, your overall finances and your emotional well-being.

Does child support cover education expenses in Connecticut?

One of the best ways to look at child support is as the means to provide for children. It is not a fee paid to the custodial parent and it is not a means of imposing hardships on the noncustodial parent. In an ideal situation, both parents contribute to the care of their children and they understand that child support is for the kids and the kids alone.
