Automatic Orders (Notice of Automatic Orders)

Automatic Orders, or Notice of Automatic Orders, is part of the legal documents that are used to start a divorce, legal separation or annulment in Connecticut. This document, along with the Summons and Complaint, are prepared by the person starting the legal action. This Notice has a list of rules that apply to both spouses. These rules provide, in essence, that neither spouse takes any extraordinary action with their finances or their children; this also prohibits changes to insurance.
