Family law is complex and involves many, interconnected issues. At our law firm, we understand the complexity of family law, particularly the toll that divorces take on our clients. We take great pride in our results-oriented approach that helps reach an optimal outcome while reducing the impact on our clients.

At our law firm, we understand that each divorce is different and we are committed to understanding each client's challenges and circumstances. To accomplish this, we provide a free half-hour consultation with prospective clients. During this initial consultation, we gather information to determine what areas of family law are applicable and how we can leverage our extensive experience to meet our clients' goals.

The Norwalk Divorce Process

During the initial consultation, our attorneys take time to understand the circumstances of the parties and describe the stages of getting a divorce. They include:

  • Property/Asset Division: Connecticut is an equitable distribution state, which means that as part of the divorce decree, the judge will distribute marital property between the parties equitably. This is a fact intensive analysis and requires systematic presentation of evidence by each party to support their claims. The same is true of division of debts and liabilities.
  • Child Custody and Support: This can be the most challenging part of a divorce, even for the most amicable parties. During this phase, the parties will determine legal and physical custody issues as well as child support. Connecticut has specific rules that govern calculation of these payments, and parties generally need to follow the state guidelines. Child related issues frequently include health care expenses, extra-curricular activities, childcare, and educational support.
  • Alimony and Maintenance: This frequently contentious issue needs to be evaluated and addressed with skill and expertise. Experienced representation can expedite the process. In Connecticut, the issue of spousal support depends on a number of factors, including length of the marriage, occupation and earning ability of the parties, health, age, life style, education, assets, the employability of the potential alimony recipient, and the ages of dependent children.
  • Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements: Analysis of the enforceability and the effect of these agreements can be critical to the resolution of a divorce. A properly drafted and executed prenuptial agreement can help resolve most, if not all, outstanding issues.
Norwalk CT Mediation Attorneys

If the circumstances allow, the attorneys at Lovejoy and Rimer, P.C. encourage alternative dispute resolution through mediation or collaborative law. This approach is often preferable to a time consuming and expensive divorce trial.

Negotiated resolutions, however, are not always possible and a trial may be inevitable. If that is the case, the attorneys at Lovejoy and Rimer, P.C. rely on their extensive litigation experience to represent their clients in family law court.

The Post-Divorce Process

The divorce process does not end with the divorce. The attorneys at Greenberg & Krieger LLP have extensive experience handling issues that arise after the divorce, including post-divorce modifications, or enabling a parent to relocate.
