How to establish paternity under Connecticut family law

Many couples decide to wait to marry or not to marry at all, yet still want to have children together. If you are one of these couples, you need to be aware that the legal paternity of your children is not guaranteed since you are unmarried. Under Connecticut family law, the assumption is that the husband of a woman having a child is the legal father, but that presumption does not exist for unmarried parents.

The most important part of your divorce: Child custody

If you are like other Connecticut families going through a divorce, the fate of your family rests heavy on your mind. Deciding how your child custody agreement will look is more than likely preoccupying the majority of your time. Whether you work out an agreement with your spouse or need the court to make the decisions on behalf of your family, it helps to understand what you face.

Dividing retirement in a divorce? Don't get pegged by the IRS

When Connecticut residents begin building up their retirement accounts at work, they're probably aware that there is a pretty hefty penalty for withdrawing money from it prior to retirement. During a divorce, retirement accounts, or at least a portion of them, could be considered part of the marital estate. Dividing those accounts could lead to a significant financial impact if not done correctly.

  • Wendy helped guide us through a very difficult and emotional process and was really able to provide an even and fair account for both parties. It's quite evident in her expertise in this area but the way she was able to make you feel safe and secure in a very insecure time goes far beyond her legal prowess. If the two parties are really willing to cooperate and collaborate, she's there to help gain the best possible solution for all involved, especially if there are children.
  • Regardless of how committed one is to the fact that divorce may be imminent and necessary, it is truly one of the most emotional and stressful situations one can experience. It can also be daunting. Wendy has a remarkable ability to cut through the noise and help you focus on the big picture while drilling down on what is most pertinent to your particular situation., they are a formidable team who work collectively with your best interests in mind.
  • Wendy and her staff were a delight to work with. During this difficult process I felt confident that the outcome would be fair and balanced, as it did. Very supportive, always well prepared and very knowledgeable. Would choose them all over again!
