How occupation plays a role in divorce rate

Connecticut residents who travel for work or are employed in nightlife-related occupations have the highest rates of divorce. This is according to data from the 2015 American Community Survey that was analyzed by FlowindData. The high rates of divorce among these individuals is likely because of their need for a flexible schedule that puts pressure on the ability to have a stable relationship. There may be a link between income and divorce rates as well.

Compromise essential to setting up co-parenting rules

Many differences in opinion could motivate people in Connecticut to divorce, but splitting parents will help their children if they can compromise about the rules for shared custody. When parents have different attitudes about raising children, they might undermine the consistency and structure that their children need between two households. A conscious focus on the best interests of the children along with a willingness to compromise could allow parents to negotiate a co-parenting plan that does not reduce the well-being of their children.

Paying spousal support and tax deductions

Connecticut residents who are making alimony payments might wonder how they can make certain those payments are tax deductible. There are a few requirements. The first is that the payment has to be included in a written separation or divorce agreement, and the agreement cannot specifically say that the payment is not alimony.

How and why a prenup could be successfully challenged

Let's say that you and your spouse signed a prenuptial agreement before you walked down the aisle together. Years have passed and you are now going through a divorce. So you review your prenuptial agreement and you start to realize that this document doesn't seem to be balanced. It seems to favor your wife or husband more than you.
