In Connecticut we conduct a final hearing in all uncontested divorce, separation and annulment cases. This hearing is often less than 20 minutes long. The court will first hear the facts that give the court jurisdiction over your case and then a brief summary of the provisions in your agreement. The court can only accept an agreement that is fair and equitable to both of you and in the best interest of your children. The court does not typically inquire as to the reason for the divorce or the analysis behind an agreement—the court is very pleased when spouses can work out an agreement that is fair and equitable to both of you. The court, however, will want to hear from each of you that you believe the agreement is fair and equitable and in the best interests of your children.
