When a marriage deteriorates and spouses decide to go their separate ways, emotions can be overwhelming. So too can the practical, financial and legal challenges that come with separation and divorce. It is a time that requires thoughtfulness and careful planning. Important decisions must be made and vital steps taken, often in a charged atmosphere where those overwhelming emotions can cloud judgment and lead to costly mistakes.
That is why having sound, steady guidance, experienced counsel and a fierce advocate is absolutely crucial when facing divorce.

Unlike in some states, legal separation is not a prerequisite to divorce in Connecticut. Thus it is rare for a party in this state to seek a legal separation. Nevertheless, when a couple is not prepared to make a permanent decision about ending their marriage, see a possibility of reconciliation but also see a need for time apart, a legal separation may a viable alternative to divorce in Connecticut. We can assist clients through the separation process, providing guidance on the changes that come with it, such as taxes, benefits, insurance and other financial matters.
While divorce marks the end of a legally valid marriage, an annulment in Connecticut is the end of a marriage that was never valid to begin with. Annulments are available under very specific and limited circumstances. “Buyer’s remorse” or a marriage of short duration are not grounds for annulment. When annulment is an available and advisable course of action, we work to bring the matter to a conclusion as quickly as possible.
