Mediation Lawyers in Connecticut

Mediation Attorneys

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

Our Hartford Offices Provides Legal Services to the Following Courthouses

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. However, these pre-marriage contracts, which protect a couple financially in case of divorce, are often important – especially logically.  People may think of prenuptial agreements as …

Not So Post-COVID Update: Connecticut Family Courts

In looking at the glass half-full, the Connecticut Family Courts are moving forward in handling cases beyond emergency Motions and Restraining Orders only.  In-person court proceedings continue to be limited to these emergency hearings, but the Courts are now virtually hearing and resolving contested motions, trials, and every type of matter that was previously resolved …

The Value of a Prenuptial Agreement: Assets and Debts

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

The Connecticut Family Courts are beginning to virtually hear contested matters which is, hopefully, a major step forward in clearing the backlog of cases in an already overburdened system and lifting the weight of prolonged delay for parties who need relief.

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.

Jennifer’s Law: Dramatic Shift In Connecticut Family Law Landscape

The holiday season should be a time for joy and celebration.  But for some, it can be a time of increased family violence.  This past October, Connecticut law regarding domestic violence took a major step in a new direction.  Prior to the enactment of Jennifer’s Law, victims could apply for Restraining Orders only upon the …

Challenges That Come With High-Net-Worth Divorces

Filing for divorce in Connecticut can be a challenging time for anyone, including families with substantial assets and/or income.  There is no bright-line test for what is labeled a high-net-worth divorce, but suffice it to say that the colloquial expression, “you know it when you see it” probably applies.  In many respects, the income and …
