The federal Department of Agriculture is urging states like Connecticut to implement child support cooperation agreements for people receiving food assistance. The USDA guidance was issued to state agencies overseeing the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, often referred to by its prior name, "food stamps." If implemented, this would mean that people receiving SNAP benefits would be required to cooperate with child support enforcement, including entering official child support orders and agreements where none currently exist.
Millennials in Connecticut and across the country are using prenups a lot more often to cover property that is held separately, inheritances from family, business ownership interests and other assets. Part of the reason may be the millennial generation's tendency to marry later than previous generations did. Since 2005, the median age for marriage has risen to 29.9 from 27 for men, and the median age for women has risen to 28.1 from 25.5.
