There's No Need To Go Through A Divorce Or Other Family Law Dispute On Your Own

The experience of going through a divorce is different for each person. Perhaps you have friends or family who have been through a difficult separation, child custody dispute or numerous other aspects of a divorce. Although they may be able to offer perspective and advice about how to get through your family law challenges, the fact is the difference between long, drawn-out proceedings and an efficient resolution is working with a professional who can help you set aside emotions and focus on what's most important.

Will I Keep My House, Car And Family Heirlooms?

Divorces in Connecticut call for the equitable distribution of property. In most cases, this means that property and assets are to be divided fairly; however, that doesn't mean division is always equal.

For example, it would be difficult to divide the family home right down the middle. In many cases, one party will keep the house while the other receives a larger portion of other marital assets to compensate for half the home's value. Each family's situation is different and proceedings can be complex. Your lawyer will help you determine what property will be part of the distribution process, valuate property to ensure you receive your fair share and protect what is most important to you.
