GUIDELINES REGARDING CONTENT:
Divorce in Connecticut is looking for articles that challenge the status quo in regard to how Family Court handles extended term divorces. It seeks to find diverse points of view and to look at solutions from a broad range of angles, and is not afraid to venture into unexplored territory.
At the same time, it seeks to educate, to inform, and to equip its readers to conduct their legal cases in a more effective and intelligent manner. Articles that fall within the above parameters will be very successful and well received on this blog.
DIC cannot provide financial remuneration for pieces published on this blog at this time.
