Connecticut parents charged following childís death

For many families in Connecticut, the well-being and safety of their children comes first. Typically, this is the case whether or not the parents are engaged in a custody battle, which can frequently be the result of parents making the decision to divorce. Sometimes, parents face difficult decisions which hopefully end up in the child’s best interest. However, what happens when parents don’t necessarily have their children’s best interests at heart?

Many factors can contribute to the breakup of a marriage, from the unavoidable stresses of daily life to infidelity of one or both partners. Whatever the cause, the decision to divorce is never an easy one, and this is certainly the case in Connecticut as well as in other parts of the country. One of the issues a couple must factor in when going through this process is alimony.

Can divorce be amicable?

The term “conscious uncoupling” has been all over the news lately thanks to the news of the divorce of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin. At first blush, the lingo might seem like new age, Hollywood elite gibberish, but the idea behind it is a worthy one. Going through a divorce in Connecticut can be contentious as both parties hash out the details of child custody, property division and spousal support. Things can get bitter quickly and many cases end up in court when neither side can agree.

Connecticut parents fight to regain custody of daughter

Frequently, custody battles are a direct result of divorce proceedings in which parents are unable to agree on the best outcome for their child or children. However, custody disagreements are not necessarily fought between disputing parents. Sometimes, hospitals or courts conclude that the best decision for a child is to be in the custody of outside entities. This is the case with a 15-year-old girl from Connecticut, who is currently in the center of a dispute between her parents and the Department of Children and Families of Massachusetts.
