Overview of Divorce Proceedings in Connecticut

A divorce in Connecticut is called a Dissolution of Marriage and although Connecticut is generally a no-fault divorce state, there can be other reasons besides irretrievable breakdown as the main reason for the divorce.  The reasons listed can affect how a family court may award certain aspects of your divorce.  Some of the reasons that can be used to dissolve a marriage include:

  • Irretrievable breakdown
  • Adultery
  • Seven years' absence
  • Intolerable cruelty
  • Habitual intemperance
  • Separation for 18 months with no prospect of reconciliation
  • Fraudulent contract
  • Desertion for one year

Understanding New York Divorce Proceedings

Thanks to recent laws, New York has now become a no-fault state like Connecticut. This reform in the law has made it easier for couples who are looking to file as it gives them a chance to file without looking for reasons. Before, when there had to be grounds for divorce (such as infidelity) the process became drawn out and unfortunately a place where perjury ran amuck. This, however, is no longer is the case. 

Despite recent reform, it is still very important to receive the legal assistance that you deserve from an experienced divorce attorney. By working with someone who understands all the laws, you can receive the support and guidance that you deserve through the process, no matter if you are considering child custodyvisitation or spousal support. The legal process can be exhausting, frightening and isolating, but with the right legal of support and guidance, you can take the steps necessary towards your desirable result.
