If you live in Connecticut and are in the process of getting a divorce the issue of alimony, spousal support, and child support will inevitably arise. At times, it can seem that the family law system in Connecticut favors women and that men will have no choice but to forfeit assets and huge sums of money to resolve alimony and child support.
Many people are also under the assumption that the wife will get half of everything no matter what. Others assume that the wife will get sole custody of the child and the father will have to pay child support. This is not always the case and many factors are involved when determining alimony, spousal support, and child support.
On the other side of the coin, many women forego career goals or make concessions to their husband through the marriage. As a woman who might be due to alimony or child support, it is your obligation to make your needs known and to ensure that payments are made, that court orders are met, and those regular payments are made according to the law. Too often men and women alike fail to meet their obligation to pay alimony or child support and it is up to you to bring that to the court’s attention.
