Connecticut Requires An Equitable Division Of Assets And Liabilities
One of the most contentious issues related to divorce is the discussion of financial separation. While some states allow for the shielding of certain assets as personal property, Connecticut has distinct rules about the division of wealth when a marriage is legally dissolved. You will not be able to protect any assets from this process, so negotiating is key.
Our state considers all property to be collectively owned, and a judge will make a final determination to ensure that the split is deemed “equitable,” which differs from an equal division. Your negotiations can help to avoid an uncomfortable separation of your collective wealth, as your judge can rely upon this document in their decision.
Helping You Navigate the Complex World Of Custody During Divorce
If you and your former partner share a child together, the topic of custody can be another area of disagreement. Once again, however, your negotiations will serve to give the judge an outline of how you and your ex wish for things to occur. A custody agreement is a powerful tool to help you and your spouse decide on a comfortable solution for everyone.
It is important to remember that your judge will consider the needs of the child to be the most important factor. Work with your attorney through the negotiation process so that you can reach a custody agreement that the court will allow.
