Why Should You Hire a Connecticut Divorce Attorney?

Divorce can be a stressful process for everyone involved, especially when you have children. Hiring an experienced divorce attorney will lighten the load and provide you with a legal advantage so you can make better and more informed decisions about your future. Working with a talented attorney helps you avoid the common mistakes many couples in Connecticut make when going through this process.

In 2019, there were 2.7 divorces per thousand people in Connecticut. Unfortunately, the court system often applies a “one-size-fits-all” approach to those going through a divorce, which makes it difficult for couples with unique circumstances and concerns. That’s why you should work with a reputable divorce lawyer who uses the law to achieve the justice you deserve. Connecticut’s divorce laws are becoming increasingly complicated, so an attorney can help you navigate the syst

em and get you the results you want.

What are the Different Divorce Types in Connecticut?

Divorce in Connecticut comes in many forms, including:

  • Mediation
  • Collaborative divorce
  • Contested divorce
  • No-fault divorce
  • Litigation


A type of negotiation that serves as an alternative to a conventional court-based divorce in Connecticut. During mediation, an independent person helps both parties negotiate an agreement to resolve disputes.

Collaborative Divorce

An out-of-court process where parties resolve their issues amicably and come to a fair settlement that benefits everyone involved in the divorce.

Contested Divorce

A contested divorce typically happens when both parties can’t agree on a resolution and ask a judge to resolve any conflicts for them. Parties will have to determine issues like alimony and child support in the courtroom.

No-Fault Divorce

When one or more parties apply for a divorce without blaming the other person for that divorce. With the removal of “fault” from the separation process, both parties can often complete their divorce in a quicker timeframe and move on with their lives.


In a litigated divorce, both parties take their case to court so a judge can resolve any issues associated with that divorce. It’s important to remember that going through the court system isn’t the best route for every couple.

Knowing the right path to take can be difficult, especially at such an emotional time. That’s why we provide you with ongoing support when you need it most. Our experienced team will help you choose the best divorce method based on your circumstances and budget.
