Common Family Law Cases

DIVORCE & SEPARATION:  A divorce is a legal end to a marital relationship.  A legal separation has the same effect as divorce. It is a temporary determination of things like finances and child custody. Parties are not allowed to re-marry during a separation. 

CHILD CUSTODY: When parents are unable to agree on custody or visitation issues, the court will decide the best interests of the minor children.  While each parent’s wishes are considered, the court will ultimately decide where the child lives, who makes decisions for the child, and how much time the child spends with each parent.   

CHILD SUPPORT: In Connecticut, parents are legally obligated to financially support their children.  Courts will consider the needs of a minor child and each parent’s ability to pay. Child support is determined based on the state’s Child Support Guidelines. 

ALIMONY:  Alimony is money paid by one spouse to another either during or after divorce.  Alimony allows a spouse who is disadvantaged to maintain the same standard of living as when they were married.

POST JUDGEMENT MOTIONS: Under certain circumstances, court orders need to be enforced or modified.  To do this, post-judgement motions are required to bring the case back to court.  If there is a change to the circumstances of either party, whether it be personal or financial, this a post-judgement motion is filed.  Some examples include changes to child custody or visitation arrangements, child support or alimony issues.  

PRE & POST NUPTIAL AGREEMENTS: Pre or post-nuptial agreements are made before or during a marriage and are a type of contract that covers the financial implications if the marriage dissolves. Each party’s rights to the marital estate will be determined in the event of a divorce.

DIVORCE MEDIATION/UNCONTESTED DIVORCE: Divorce mediation is a way of negotiating a fair and reasonable divorce settlement or custody agreement. This process involves working with a neutral third-party mediator to make decisions about finances, alimony, child support, and child custody and visitation. The goal is to reach an agreement that can be easily presented to the court as part of an uncontested divorce. An uncontested divorce happens when there is full agreement between the spouses.

CHOOSING YOUR PATH THROUGH THE DIVORCE PROCESS

The first step in any Family Law case is to decide which path you and your spouse will choose to reach a resolution.  Some cases are more complex and conflicted than others and this will determine how you proceed. 

MEDIATION: Mediation is a process in which the parties work with a neutral third-party to reach an agreement on distribution of property and child custody arrangements.  Things to consider are housing, parenting time, child support and maintenance, retirement, and taxes.  

COLLABORATION: Collaborative divorce is when two parties agree to work together and negotiate the terms of a divorce outside court.  Both parties must be willing to cooperate and problem solve during this process for it to work. Often times, outside counseling and financial professionals are involved.  

LITIGATION: Litigated divorce means couples must go through family court to resolve the issues between them.  This is for couples who cannot reach agreement. It is often costly, time-consuming, and the most emotionally draining option for divorce.
