Divorce and pressures facing young married couples

For any married couple, a number of challenges may arise throughout the course of the marriage. Spousal affairs can be problematic for couples from all age groups, and the same is true for domestic violence, disagreement over finances and many other issues. For some couples, however, there may be an additional amount of pressure in the relationship. For example, young married couples may face a number of hurdles that are especially likely to occur. In this post, we will examine some of the pressures that these couples may experience.

How do the courts split up your assets in a Connecticut divorce?

Financial uncertainty is one of the most stressful components of divorce.

When people in Connecticut overextend themselves financially, bankruptcy may often seem like the easy answer.

However, if one or more of the jurors hold biases against the person being tried, the eventual decision could result in an unfair conviction.
