Many divorcing spouses are looking for an alternative to costly and protracted litigation. If a couple is willing to settle their differences amicably and generally agree on the terms and conditions of the marriage dissolution, a simple, uncontested divorce may be a viable option. Going this route can save couples time, aggravation, and potentially thousands of dollars in court costs and attorney fees.

Attorney Hector Gonzalez has over 15 years of experience in this area of the law, and he has in-depth knowledge of the process. Attorney Gonzalez works closely with clients to ensure that all pertinent issues are resolved, the paperwork is properly prepared, and the process is completed in a smooth and timely manner.

Uncontested Divorces in Connecticut

The state of Connecticut refers to divorce as "dissolution of marriage," but the two terms mean the same thing. For a couple to pursue an uncontested divorce, the following requirements must be met:

  • At least one spouse must have lived in Connecticut for the past 12 months.
  • Both parties must agree to the grounds for the divorce.
  • Both parties must agree to amicably resolve all issues of the divorce, such as alimony, child support, child custody, visitation, and division of debts and assets, and they must fully disclose their finances to each other.
  • There are no other existing cases concerning the couple's children.
  • Both parties must attend a mandatory parenting class (if there are children involved).

The uncontested divorce process in Connecticut is fairly simple and straightforward, but there are still several documents that need to be completed, and a short hearing is generally required. At the court hearing, the spouses submit financial affidavits, an affidavit concerning child support (if there are children involved), a final divorce agreement, and any other documents that may pertain to the specific settlement terms of the case. Before a divorce decree is granted, the spouses are asked a series of questions to ensure that they understand the terms and conditions of the final divorce agreement, that they are of sound mind, and that they have not been forced into signing it.
