When spouses in Connecticut divorce, they might not initially be on equal financial footing. This may especially be true if one spouse earns significantly more than the other or if one spouse stayed out of the workforce entirely to care for the family during the marriage. Therefore, the lesser-earning spouse may want to seek alimony -- also known as spousal support -- from his or her ex.
The winter holidays are here, and it is a time of celebration for many Connecticut parents and children. However, if a child's parents are divorced, navigating the holidays can be challenging. Thus, it might be a good time to blow the dust off your parenting plan and review it, ensuring it still meets your needs as your co-parent with your ex this holiday season.
