Divorce Lawyers Serving All of Connecticut

Divorce: We Can Help You Protect Your Future

At the Kocian Law Group, we understand that the decision to file for divorce can be one of the most difficult, heart-breaking and complicated decisions that one can make. Just as no two marriages are the same, no two divorces are the same. Our divorce lawyers will always take the time to discuss your needs, concerns and the best approach to handle your unique divorce case.

Once you have made the decision to proceed with a divorce, it is important to retain counsel immediately. The reality is that divorce is a complicated and stressful matter. Even the friendliest of divorces can become litigious in an instant when emotions run high.

Connecticut Divorce | First Steps

Because Connecticut uses a "no-fault" divorce system, neither spouse gains an advantage by filing for divorce first. Fault is relevant to other areas in the divorce process, particularly the division of assets and liabilities. We take care to ensure you understand and are prepared for how the process works.

Connecticut law is also peculiar in that there is a mandatory cooling off period that prevents a final judgment from entering until at least 90 days have expired from the date you file your case. However, during that period of time much work can and will be done to value assets and determine outstanding debts.

In Connecticut, the marital assets and debts are to be "equitably distributed," or distributed in a way that puts the parties on roughly fair footing with regard to both assets and debts.
