UNDERSTANDING DIVORCE FOR SAME-SEX COUPLES

Same-sex marriage is recognized and completely legal in Connecticut, and has been so since November of 2008. In addition, marriage equality for people of all sexual orientations was recently recognized by the Supreme Court of the United States. While this means that homosexual couples can now be afforded all of the rights and privileges associated with heterosexual marriage, it also means they have to deal with the bad parts as well. Whether you were originally married in Connecticut or another state that allows same-sex marriage, it's important to consult with divorce lawyers in the event that your marriage comes to an end. Here are some important things to know about divorce for same-sex couples in the Waterbury area. 

HOW TO PROTECT YOUR KIDS DURING DIVORCE

When served with divorce papers, the first thing many people feel is shock. Even those who knew their marriage was in bad shape are stunned when they finally have the documents in their hand. It has a feeling of finality that doesn't exist in heated arguments or even door slamming. The next thing they feel is usually a combination of sorrow and anger. Frustrated by a relationship that didn't work out, they're determined to get everything that's owed to them and make the other person feel like a loser. Meanwhile as most divorce lawyers know, the real losers end up being the children. Kids have no say in the matter, and often suffer the most emotional trauma from the division of two parents that they love equally. In an effort to remind parents that well being of the kids should be the most important priority, we've put together this list of tips for protecting them.
