Terrance Howard says his money goes to alimony and child support

Connecticut movie buffs have probably heard of Terrence Howard because his film credits include "Hustle & Flow," "Iron Man" and "The Butler," but Howard claims the movie business has not provided him with a lavish income because of a divorce settlement. The actor recently said he cannot pay spousal support for $325,000 to his second wife because a majority of his income goes to pay his support obligations to his first wife and their children.

Dividing real property during divorce

Couples in Connecticut and across the nation who are considering divorce may be interested to know that even if a couple considers themselves separated, they may not be viewed as separate entities by lenders. Even if an individual no longer lives with his or her spouse, that spouse may be able to claim ownership of any property purchased before the divorce is finalized. In addition, the debt that a couple jointly holds may be included in any mortgage that an individual tries to get.

Indiana Pacers star seeks sole custody of child

Indiana Pacers star, Paul George, is in the middle of a custody case regarding a 2-month-old child he may have fathered with a New York woman. The child's mother had originally sought sole child custody primarily because of George's travel schedule.

Frank McCourt victorious in divorce fee fight

Connecticut fans of the Los Angeles Dodgers may be familiar with Frank McCourt, the team's former owner. McCourt split from his wife of nearly 30 years, Jamie McCourt, in 2012. As part of their divorce settlement, Jamie was awarded $131 million, and she also was awarded ownership of several of the luxury homes the couple owned together. However, in their divorce agreement, the couple added in a somewhat unique clause stating that if either of them later chose to challenge the agreement in court, he or she would be responsible for paying the other's court costs and attorney's fees.
