Connecticut wives should protect themselves in a divorce

Division of assets, particularly high-value assets, can become a battlefield when it comes to couples getting a divorce. Wives need to be especially alert to the couple's financial picture if they are to get their fair share of community property in the divorce. If they have more assets than their husbands, then women need to make sure they keep as much of them as possible. Determining ownership of houses and splitting joint bank accounts are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to division of assets. Finances are more complicated than ever today, with some women having their own financial portfolios in addition to any that may be held jointly with their husband.

Divorce through negotiation rather than litigation

Many Connecticut residents who are considering divorce dread the idea of a lengthy court battle, but in some cases they can avoid the time, expense and emotion of litigation and instead pursue a negotiated settlement. The advantages of a negotiated divorce, in addition to staying out of the court room, include the process taking less time and having more control over the outcome of the divorce.
