Mediation Lawyers in Connecticut

Mediation Attorneys

Many people look to divorce mediation as a less stressful and more amicable solution to divorce

Hartford Divorce Lawyers & Family Law

Hartford, New Britain, Middletown, and Rockville

Connecticut is a “no-fault” divorce state.  What that means, is a spouse does not need to prove "grounds" to obtain a divorce. The Court issues a judgment of divorce because the marriage has "irretrievably broken down.”

Why More Divorcing Couples Are Choosing Mediation

Mediation is increasingly becoming the divorce process of choice.  Why?  Because Mediation results in a personalized and long-lasting resolution without the damaging emotional and financial costs of litigation.  Divorce is the undoing of a marriage, but not the undoing of a family.  Divorce can be emotionally and financially devastating, but it does not have to …

Prenuptial Agreements: Love and Logic

Covid numbers are down.  Weddings are happening again.  Love is in the air.  For many engaged couples, the thought of discussing or negotiating a premarital agreement may seem unromantic and unnecessary.

COVID Update: Connecticut Family Courts are Beginning to Virtually Conduct Hearings on Contested Matters

Understanding TRICARE Survivor Benefits

After the nation took a collective pause from everything related to COVID-19 to recognize Memorial Day, we remember the anniversary of the Allied Invasion of Normandy during World War II (D-Day) on June 6 and Flag Day on June 14. Independence Day might be celebrated a bit differently this year, but our reverence and appreciation …

Divorce mediation allows both parties to identify, negotiate and resolve the issues raised by the decision to divorce. The mediator establishes ground rules so that emotionally charged issues can be discussed.

Divorce and Pets: Who Gets the Dog?

If you’re going through a divorce or contemplating filing for divorce, one of the questions you may have is, “what will happen to my pets?”  Pets are part of the family, and it often matters a great deal where and with whom our furry friends will reside. In Connecticut, there are no legal provisions that …

Cryptocurrency: Considerations During Divorce

Cryptocurrency.  Bitcoin.  Blockchain.  For some, cash is no longer king.  Cryptocurrency is an electronic form of currency that is intangible.  You cannot hold Bitcoin in your hand.  There is no dollar bill.  Cryptocurrency is a technology that changes the way people accomplish certain financial transactions.  Perhaps most important—cryptocurrency is not for the faint of heart …
