Back-to-school season looms as a harsh deadline for one of the most difficult types of family court cases - relocations. When a custodial parent is petitioning to leave the family's hometown, to pursue job opportunities or life with a new partner in a distant city, it can rip aparty a family that's already tattered. And by August, the kids need to know where they're going to school. In this challenging type of case, Connecticut courts have tools that make it a national model. One is a specialized docket ? the Regional Family Trial Docket (RFTD) in Middletown ? for the hardest cases. The other is an innovative special masters program for mediating such cases before trial.
