The Connecticut Divorce Process
When you and your former partner are seeking to dissolve your matrimonial partnership, there are certain steps in which you need to take. Sometimes there are serious discussions on finances and family. Custody itself can become a series of negotiations in order to eventually settle on a suitable resolution. It is important to settle on goals with children through a document known as a custody agreement.
Financial separation can be extensive as well, depending on the assets and debts that you both own. Connecticut does not recognize shared property, so everything you and your former partner owned is collective assets that a judge must divide equitably. This does not necessarily mean an equal division, but one that the judge feels best represents the just separation of assets and liabilities.
Waive The Waiting Period If You Meet The Criteria
There is a 90-day waiting period for many instances of Connecticut divorce. If you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse agree on the financial matters of separation, there are ways to waive this period and reach a speedy resolution. You may ask the court in person to give you a divorce sooner. If you would like to avoid the obtrusion of a court visit, speak with us about your possibilities and see if you meet the specific criteria to allow this to happen.
These criteria include being married for nine years or less. You or your former partner also cannot be pregnant during this time or have existing children. To learn more about these and further stipulations, speak with an attorney about your case and whether your divorce is uncontested. Quality legal counsel can help you to take the appropriate steps along the way.
