Noted Differences In A Connecticut Divorce

Divorce laws are slightly different in each state, so it may be helpful for you to research how Connecticut views the end of your marriage. The state views this as a dissolution of a partnership and devotes family court time to the equitable distribution of both your assets and your debts. Your custody process might also be different from what you expect if you have moved here from another location.

Understanding Your Specific Needs In Your Divorce

Every divorce has its own particular wrinkles, so it is important for you to have an open dialog with your legal team. Even in uncontested marriage dissolution, things can become heated and having an advocate through the process can help you to keep an even keel through a tumultuous time. Waiting can mean that your former partner has a leg up on you. Do not go into negotiations on your own against a skilled legal team and instead begin a discussion with a qualified lawyer in Connecticut.

Going Through The Connecticut Divorce Process

The steps in which you need to take to acquire a divorce in Connecticut can depend on several factors. Speak with a trained lawyer about your options in reaching a positive resolution to your marriage. Financially, this state recognizes all property as to be owned communally by you and your spouse. This means that you cannot shield any part of your possessions from your financial separation. The court in this state also works to reach what is known as an equitable distribution of both assets and debts. This can differ from an equal separation, as things do not have to reach a 50% split. Your judge can determine this you do not reach an agreement with your former partner.

Legal separation is an option in this state, if this is a more suitable alternative for your family. This can be undone if you are entertaining the thought of reuniting. It is also beneficial for families who share health insurance or wish to wait until a child has left the house before fully divorcing.
