Understanding the Divorce Process in Connecticut
In order to file for divorce, one spouse must have lived in Connecticut
for the past 12 months. Connecticut is a no-fault divorce state, which
means that simply claiming that the marriage has irretrievably broken
down can be enough to file. Fault grounds include adultery, willful desertion,
and intolerable cruelty.
From the time that divorce papers are served to when the divorce is granted,
the entire process can take a minimum of four months. Depending on the
issues at stake, things may take much longer. The most common issues that
must be resolved in a divorce include:
- Spousal support
- Child custody
- Child support
- Property division
In Connecticut, there are alternatives to divorce court. Couples may pursue
arbitration or mediation if they wish to resolve things outside of court.
If you want to pursue one of these alternate methods, then please contact
our firm to find out which option is best for you. We are able to provide
mediation/arbitration services in addition to divorce representation.
At the end of the day, it comes down to what is best for you and your
family; we will help you navigate through whatever process right for you.
We are prepared to stand by your side throughout your divorce, no matter
how long it may take. As a team committed to your best interests, you
can have confidence in the representation we provide. Our divorce attorneys
serve both Hamden and New Haven.
