What is an Uncontested Divorce?
An uncontested divorce is considered a legal process where both spouses agree on all key issues, including the division of assets, alimony, child custody, and child support. The key feature of an uncontested divorce is that it eliminates the need for a lengthy and contentious court battle, reducing stress and legal costs significantly.
Uncontested divorces can provide several advantages, including:
- Cost-Effective: As the divorce is uncontested, legal disputes are minimized, lowering attorney fees and court costs.
- Faster Resolution: Uncontested divorces typically move more swiftly through the legal system, allowing you to move on with your life sooner.
- Privacy and Control: You maintain greater privacy and control over the divorce process by resolving issues out of court.
- Reduced Emotional Stress: Uncontested divorces are often less emotionally taxing, as they foster an amicable resolution.
- Minimized Adversarial Impact on Children: For couples with children, an uncontested divorce can create a more stable and less adversarial environment for the well-being of the kids.
Uncontested Divorce Requirements in Connecticut
Before pursuing an uncontested divorce in Connecticut, certain requirements must be met:
- Residency: At least one spouse must have lived in Connecticut for at least 12 months before filing for divorce.
- Grounds for Divorce: Connecticut is a no-fault divorce state, which means you don't need to prove fault or misconduct to get a divorce. You only need to state that your marriage has broken down irretrievably.
- Agreement: Both spouses must agree on all divorce-related issues, like property division, alimony, child custody, and child support. A complete agreement must be reached and submitted to the court.
- Parental Education Program: If you have minor children, both parents are required to complete a Parental Education Program.
- Filing the Documents: The appropriate divorce forms and documents must be filed with the court, along with the necessary fees.
- Waiting Period: There is a 90-day waiting period from the date of filing before the divorce can be finalized. During this time, the court will review your paperwork and, if everything is in order, grant the divorce.
- Financial Affidavits: Both spouses are required to file financial affidavits detailing their income, expenses, assets, and debts.
