A divorce, officially called “Dissolution of Marriage”, is the process by which couples untangle their familial and financial ties. A divorce in Connecticut can be processed using either mediation, collaboration, litigation or arbitration with different timing and costs for each method. One party must be a resident of Connecticut for a divorce to be filed in Connecticut.

A divorce can take as little or as much time as you need to complete. You may have heard that there is a 90-day waiting period. If you have an agreement, we can waive the statutory 90-day waiting period. Each case is individualized based on your situation.

Elements may include:

  • asset and debt division,
  • custody and parenting plans,
  • child support,
  • alimony,
  • college education,
  • insurance and
  • tax issues.

I can prepare you for the divorce process, including the initial legal paperwork, Financial Affidavits, a settlement agreement, and the final hearing documents.
