Enforcing Connecticut divorce agreements

When a divorcing couple reaches a settlement, each likely believes what is included in the settlement will be enforced. Sometimes, though, issues surrounding divorce in Connecticut aren't always that cut and dry. There are certain steps that have to be taken when it comes to getting the most out of a settlement or separation agreement, and that may leave divorcing couples feeling disheartened.

However, there is support for for those who need help with their divorce orders. It is best to have a plan in place regarding how a divorce agreement will be implemented. There can be many stipulations included in a divorce agreement, and not having a specified plan to fulfil these obligations and tasks could mean they're not fulfilled or adhered to at all. For instance, an agreement could stipulate that one parent pays child support, but if there is no plan on when that should occur, it might be an obligation that goes unfulfilled. 

Some of the issues contained in a divorce settlement may get complicated if there isn't a road map to guide the two people involved. Things like dividing retirement accounts or 401(k) plans could especially become problematic. An action plan for accomplishing these responsibilities is almost always essential.

Obtaining legal counsel when it comes to fulfilling the tasks outlined in a divorce settlement agreement may make them become a reality quicker -- like the division of assets, for instance. A divorce agreement is only part of the puzzle. The other part is actually adhering to what's in that agreement. A Connecticut attorney can help his or her client fashion a plan for executing those tasks.

  • Hi Yuliana and Attorney Prince, Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to meet with me. I really appreciated how compassionate you were while listening to my situation, even through my tears. Thank you so much for sharing such valuable information with me. I left feeling very hopeful that when the dust settles, I’ll be ok.
  • 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.
