How long will the process take?
In Connecticut, the time frame is case-by-case. Under the new expedited divorce law, it is possible for many people to get divorced in less than 30 days.
How are household bills paid during the divorce process?
Once the process is initiated, automatic court orders apply. Essentially these orders require status quo during the pending divorce. For example; if one spouse pays the rent/mortgage before being served, the orders require continued payment.
If my spouse stops paying the bills, is there anything I can do?
Connecticut allows a judge to make Pendente Lite orders (during the pendency) of the proceedings. This may include payment of bills, temporary spousal support or freezing of assets.
Will our assets and debts be divided 50-50%?
Connecticut is an equitable division state. This means that the court decides or the parties agree what is a fair and equitable division of both assets and debts.
Will I have to pay/receive alimony?
Alimony is determined on a case-by-case basis. Multiple factors will be considered when deciding an alimony order. Such factors include the age of the parties, a standard of living, earning capacity of each party, length of the marriage, and health of the parties.
How do I choose the right divorce lawyer?
It is important to choose a lawyer who not only has the experience you need, but one with whom you feel comfortable. While ratings and client reviews are great, (I am humbled by glowing reviews and honored by our high rankings) above all, the attorney must be the right fit for your situation. Use the rule of meeting with three lawyers and retain the one you believe best fits your needs. Follow your instincts.
If I am dissatisfied, can I switch lawyers?
