What are benefits of a surrogacy agreement?

Couples in Connecticut working with a surrogate, and likewise, surrogates themselves, will find the state has many favorable conditions for them. For instance, surrogacy agreements are legal in the state. There are several benefits to negotiating this type of contract between the surrogate and intended parents.

Poverty and divorce linked in research results

It is reasonable for people who live in Connecticut to be worried about their finances if or when they get divorced. The impact of splitting assets and finding how to support oneself on a solo income after becoming accustomed to a married income lifestyle is no easy task. For some people, the experience may actually be a contributing factor to eventual poverty according to some research conducted by sociologists at Bowling Green State University.

Can you keep your 401k?

As you enter into your divorce proceedings in Southport, you likely have already resigned yourself to the fact that you will likely lose (or at least see your ownership diminish in) some assets. You may not be ready, however, to include your 401k amongst them. While the contributions made to your retirement account during your marriage do come from marital income, they still came as a result of your individual effort. Thus, your desire to not divide them with your ex-spouse is understandable. There may even be a way for you to keep the entirety of your 401k account in your divorce settlement.
