How does domestic violence affect child custody?

When trying to get child custody during a divorce in Connecticut, parents need to take into consideration that the court looks at numerous factors when deciding which parent gets sole custody or if joint custody is best. Many of the factors have to do with what is best for the child, and if one of the parents is under accusation for domestic violence, this is a serious offense that will more than likely affect the parent's ability to gain custody.

Closing day can bring surprises

After house searching, negotiating on price and signing a purchase agreement, soon-to-be new homeowners in Connecticut may think everything is smooth sailing once closing day arrives. However, there are certain issues that may arise and cause problems with the final closing. Potential owners should be aware of some of the common issues so they are not taken by surprise or can even prevent them from occurring.

Factors involved in claiming an insanity defense

People who are standing trial in Connecticut may wonder if they are eligible for claiming insanity. This ruling may find the person not guilty due to their mental condition, or the judge may give a lighter or different sentence because of it. While television shows and movies seem to use this term quite a bit, it is not a common defense strategy, and it is important to understand the legalities that go along with it.

What happens during a DUI arrest?

Seeing police lights in your rearview mirror may be a frightening experience, especially if you have consumed alcohol or drugs before getting behind the wheel. Getting pulled over by Connecticut law enforcement personnel may require you to submit to a test of your blood alcohol concentration. A police officer may arrest you without knowing your BAC if he or she witnessed you violating traffic laws.
