Divorce property division

A subject that may interest Connecticut residents, asset protection in divorce, is addressed in a recent Forbes article. Prenuptial agreements are one way people protect their assets from possible division at divorce, but these may be contested. Even if a prenup is upheld in court, litigation to defend it can be expensive.

Children traveling abroad with former spouses

For Connecticut parents, it can be unnerving to entrust a child to the care of a former spouse, especially if a split was recent or not particularly amicable. Entrusting a child to the other parent's care on a trip abroad may seem unthinkable. However, it isn't always up to the non-traveling parent to decide if a child is allowed to travel. Usually, a child under 16 is required to have both parents present for a passport application. If parents are divorced, one parent may be present if he or she has obtained a court order permitting the trip. If he or she has full custody, it's permissible to have just one parent present as well.

Spitzer's postnuptial deal provides generously for ex-wife

Spouses in Connecticut pursuing a high-asset divorce may be interested in former Governor of New York Eliot Spitzer's divorce, legal documents from which were recently obtained and reported by media sources. According to those documents, Spitzer's ex-wife will receive a lucrative financial package thanks to the couple's postnuptial agreement. The couple filed for divorce in January 2014.
