Divorce Lawyer for Danbury

Understanding the Divorce Process

Connecticut is known as a "no-fault" divorce state. Fault may be considered when it comes to payment of alimony and division of property. The most common ground for divorce used in virtually all cases is irretrievable breakdown. There is a 90 day "cooling off" period in Connecticut between when the divorce action begins and the issuing of the final divorce decree. The majority of cases are resolved prior to trial. 

A settlement agreement is written by the spouse's lawyer, containing all of the conditions agreed upon, including child support, alimony, division of real estate and other property, lawyer fees, etc. A hearing is then held in which the judge reviews all of the paperwork and ensures the agreement is fair. If this is found to be true, the judgment for dissolution of the marriage is granted. If no settlement is reached, then the case will go to trial. Representing yourself during a hearing could be very intimidating. It would be in your best interests if you hired an attorney to represent you during this emotional and stressful time. A Danbury family law attorney will be by your side to you to fight for your rights.

Divorce Lawyer for Resolving Danbury Divorce Matters

If the circumstance of your marriage are fairly simple, such as having little or no assets, no minor children, the marriage was short, and you are on good terms with your spouse doing your own divorce might make sense. For the majority of cases, a lawyer is needed. Choosing the right attorney is critical. Some questions to ask would be: Does the attorney have many years of family law experience?  Is he truly concerned and committed to your needs? Does he listen and care about what you have to say? Will he create a sense of calm, rather than inciting an adversarial process with your spouse and his or her lawyer? Is he available when you need to talk with him?  With many years of experience in family law the attorneys from Jowdy & Jowdy will negotiate hard for you so that you receive a fair and equitable settlement. Divorce in never easy, but having the right attorney will make things a little easier for you.
