Connecticut alimony payers have family law options

Although alimony serves a necessary function for taking care of former spouses, disagreements over terms and settlements can render it less effective. Some disputes even delay other proceedings when they are not managed correctly, and those who fail to satisfy court alimony terms may be subjected to punitive measures, such as wage garnishment. At the Law Offices of James A Cuddy, LLC., we work hard to change the way Connecticut spouses feel about their alimony arrangements by helping them resolve disputes and identify workable agreement solutions.

Responsibility of children's health care costs

Unanticipated medical and dental expenses for a child can arise at any time, so having a court ordered arrangement of each parent's obligations can be beneficial. Connecticut parents who are separated or divorced can ensure that their child has access to adequate health care coverage via a medical support order which lays out each parent's responsibility of health care costs, out of pocket expenses, and costs not reimbursed by an insurance or health care plan.

Avoiding unnecesary costs during divorce

As many Connecticut residents may know, the process of pursuing and completing a divorce can be costly. According to one report, some couples may spend between $15,000 and $20,000 during the proceedings. However, there are some ways that an individual may be able to dissolve a marriage without incurring unnecessary fees.

A child's preference in a custody matter

Connecticut parents who are going through a separation or divorce may be surprised to learn that their child is voicing a desire to live with one parent over the other. Custody can be a difficult and emotional aspect of a case, and a judge will take into consideration any preferences the child may have, but the best interests of the child will always take precedence over all else.
