Divorce in CT is similar to divorce in most states in the country in which a 'no-fault' divorce is acceptable terms for dissolving a marriage. In other words, either spouse can decide to request a judge to dissolve a marriage regardless of fault and can simply state the relationship is irreparably broken. Divorce in Connecticut is different than a legal separation in Connecticut and a couple must decide which process best suits their family's needs. Evaluating a family's financial situation and whether or not they have children together can help a spouse decide if they will attempt to file for divorce or legal separation and if they will file for divorce with or without the help of an experienced attorney. There are several factors to consider:
- Debt Allocation
- Property Division
- Financial Support
- Child Support & Custody
- Child Visitation and Planning
The laws surrounding marriage, divorce, and separation can be complex when property, debt, and children are involved and one should be careful to approach them without the help of an experienced attorney.
