Court Procedure Update

November 9, 2018

The Connecticut Courts now allow a much more stream-lined process for obtaining a divorce in a shorter period of time if certain conditions are met, including:

  • You have been married 9 (nine) years or less
  • Neither of you are pregnant
  • No children were born to you or adopted by you before or during the marriage
  • Neither of you have any interest or title in any real property
  • The total value of all property owned by you is less than $80,000
  • Neither of you has a defined benefit pension plan
  • Neither of you has a pending bankruptcy
  • There is no other action for dissolution of your marriage pending
  • There are no restraining or protective orders between you

Since the courts and the clerks are not allowed to provide any legal advice to any of the parties to a divorce, we highly recommend that you see an attorney for assistance.

Please contact us at The Law Office of Cecilia Buck-Taylor, P.C. so that we can help you move through this more quickly by providing assistance in initiating this process and compiling and filing the correctly completed documents including your financial affidavits and your Divorce Agreement.  We can also assist both of you by explaining all of your options, discussing the effects of the terms of your agreement and in negotiating the best terms for each of you to be able to move on with your lives.
