Grounds for Divorce in Connecticut

Connecticut recognizes both fault and no-fault divorce. A fault divorce places the blame for the end of your marriage on your spouse. Connecticut recognizes the following as grounds for a fault divorce:

  • Adultery
  • Alcohol or drug addiction
  • Confinement to a mental hospital
  • Cruelty
  • Desertion for at least 12 months
  • Fraudulent contract
  • Imprisonment
  • Seven years of absence without communication

A no-fault divorce means that you are not placing responsibility on your spouse for the end of your marriage. The grounds for a no-fault divorce in Connecticut are:

  • Irretrievable breakdown of the marriage
  • Living separate and apart for at least 18 months

We are Experts at Navigating Legal Considerations

Whether you are dealing with a legal separation or divorce/dissolution, there are a number of legal considerations to be aware of when trying to reach a settlement agreement. The judge will not finalize the action until you and your spouse have reached agreements on these matters in a settlement out of court, or have litigated the case during a contested divorce.

It is important to remember that even when an agreement is reached, it will never be a perfect agreement. All parties will need to make concessions to reach an outcome that everyone is comfortable with even if it does not include everything they wanted. A good agreement is one that is fair and reasonable - not perfect! This is particularly important to keep in mind when there are children involved, as the parents will continue to have a relationship in the shared experience of child rearing.
