Planning to divorce? You don't have to rush into court

Making the decision to end your marriage probably required a great deal of thought. Once you made the decision, you may have reacted as other Connecticut residents have in the past, and your fight or flight instincts told you to rush into the divorce process in order to move on as quickly as possible. However, jumping head long into the process without any preparation could cost you in the future.

Couples don't have to use divorce mediation

Facing the end of a marriage is an emotional time. Perhaps making it even more stressful is the barrage of media coverage telling Connecticut couples that divorce mediation is the way the way to go.

Using family law to help ensure the success of a business

They may even consult with an attorney regarding the formation and planning involved. However, they may not consider how family law could affect the future -- and potential success -- of any new venture.

Now that you are in the initial stages of a divorce, your spouse is asking a Connecticut court to invalidate your prenup. Do you know why?

Family law issues: Overcoming an objection to an adoption

Many Connecticut residents have children outside of wedlock. When the relationship with the father of a child ends, the mother may find love again and marry. Her husband may wish to adopt her child, but the biological father may come forward to object. A family law attorney could prove helpful under these circumstances.
