How Connecticut Views Your Divorce
The separation of your familial finances can be a stressful time if you are on your own. Reach out to helpful legal counsel to have a guiding hand through the process, and discover how you can utilize our experience to your advantage. The state of Connecticut has its own specific set of rules in the process of filing, so speak with us about your options. For example, you might opt instead for a legal separation, if this approach best suits your needs.
In this state, the things you own with your spouse are collective property. This means that your assets and liabilities are shared with your partner, and so a divorce can upend your financial situation. Beyond account balances, a divorce can impact a shared home or a larger asset such as a car or a boat.
Taking The Negotiation Process Seriously
Connecticut law is clear in that the separation of finances must be done in an equitable manner. This does not necessarily entail the equal division of assets and liabilities, but it can leave you with less of a say in this discussion.
Since a judge will separate your assets and liabilities, it may be helpful for you to engage in serious discussions with your former partner. The negotiating table can be a difficult area for people, as they are not used to seeing their spouse as an adversary. Work to reach a positive resolution with a legal team that keeps your needs in mind.
