Collaborative divorce leads to healthy co-parenting

In most cases, a dad in a contested divorce dispute is told by family law mediators that he will lose a majority of child custody rights and property division rights to mom, and he will also be expected to pay a hefty child support each month. This can lead to a feeling of hopelessness for divorcing fathers, but fortunately there is a remedy on the rise. Collaborative divorce and co-parenting are both holistic approaches to uncontested divorce that are gaining recognition in the mediation system as an alternative the gender-based process.

Ways to save money during a divorce

When a couple is going through a divorce, managing finances is often a concern for both spouses. In Connecticut, spouses may be awarded permanent alimony. A spouse who wants to avoid making payments for the rest of his or her life may wish to come to an alternative agreement with the other spouse and also save on legal fees. Being frugal during a divorce proceeding may be of interest to both parties. From keeping a friendly tone during negotiations to taking care to accurately report income to the court, there are many ways to save money during a divorce.

Many Connecticut residents strive to have as amicable of a divorce as possible, but due to the important issues that can come up, this isn't always possible. People ending their marriage will have to deal head-on with sensitive issues involving how assets are divided, if spousal or child support is necessary, and how to raise children.

Collaborative divorce may be an option for some couples

Connecticut residents currently considering divorce may be interested in a process known as collaborative divorce. While this option isn't for every couple, it may be good for those who want to avoid the slash-and-burn mentality that often takes over during divorce proceedings. When collaborative divorce works, it allows a couple to agree on important issues such as property division and co-parenting without having to turn the decision over to a judge.

People often make avoidable mistakes during divorce

There are many difficult decisions that must be made, and often the emotions can get in the way of making the right decisions.
