Collecting child support from Social Security benefits

Custodial parents in Connecticut who are owed back child support by their former spouses who are no longer working but who are receiving Social Security benefits may wonder if they have any recourse. Although Supplemental Security Income benefits may not be garnished, other types of Social Security benefits are reachable to help take care of the delinquencies.

Modifying alimony orders in Connecticut

There are certain situations that may arise after an alimony order has been in place for some time that necessitate a modification. In the event that a substantial change in circumstances has occurred since the original order, a Connecticut family court may suspend, reduce, modify or terminate alimony as it sees fit.

Statistics on child support not being paid

Child support is a necessary monetary contribution by a non-custodial parent to ensure their child's well-being. Just because support has been ordered or agreed upon does not guarantee that payments will be made on time or at all, however. According to the U.S. Census Bureau for 2011, 32 percent of custodial fathers and 25.1 percent of custodial mothers did not receive child support payments from the other parent. Information from the census was collected from individuals across a span of races, marital statuses, educational backgrounds and poverty levels.

The benefits of divorce mediation

More Connecticut couples whose marriages are ending are turning to mediation to help them make decisions about many common divorce issues. Even those with contentious child custody or property division issues may benefit from choosing mediation instead of litigation.
