Common misconceptions associated with a Connecticut divorce

There is no doubt that the overall status of individual relationships varies among couples in Connecticut. While there are many couples who remain happy and committed in their relationship, there are others who may be unhappy. Unfortunately, certain misconceptions about divorce may lead some people to stay in a relationship that is dysfunctional instead of seeking a happier, healthier life.

How is spousal support determined?

Marriages end for all different kinds of reasons. There are several matters that a divorce agreement can outline, including how the former couple will divide up any shared assets, arrangements for child custody and spousal support. Spousal support, if needed, is determined by several factors here in Connecticut.

What happens to credit card debt in a Connecticut divorce?

The decision to end a marriage is difficult. Once made, couples in Connecticut have multiple decisions to make before they have completed their divorce. Questions such as who will stay in the family home and how child care will be divided are obvious. However, how debt will be divided is frequently overlooked in the planning stages of ending a marriage. Who will be responsible for credit card debt, for example, is an important question, potentially with significant implications.

Family law matters: Seeking a more peaceful divorce

Many couples in Connecticut happily spend years of their lives together. But as time passes them, life changes them to people that are far removed from who they were at the beginning of their marriage. As such, many couples who were at one point happily married choose to seek a divorce. Because of their respect and love for one another, they want family law options that will lead to a more peaceful resolution than that of litigation.

Low conflict divorce resolutions in Connecticut

Television and movie dramatizations would have everyone believe that the end of a marriage is a contention-filled battle that plays out in front of a judge. However, as the law firm of Mariani Reck Lane LLC knows, this does not have to be the case. Low conflict options, such as mediation and a collaborative divorce, can help couples in Connecticut reduce the stress and financial strain often associated with the end of their romantic relationship.
