Grounds for Divorce in Connecticut

Although Connecticut is a no-fault divorce state, it also provides fault-based divorce. When a couple chooses to obtain a no-fault divorce, it essentially means that their marriage is irretrievably broken and there is no chance of a reconciliation. Additionally, when filing a no-fault divorce, neither spouse must prove who is to blame for the end of the marriage.

Couple signing divorce papersWhen a spouse files for a fault-based divorce, however, it must be based on one of the following grounds:

  • Ongoing substance abuse
  • Adultery
  • Willful desertion for at least one year
  • 5 years of confinement in a mental hospital
  • Intolerable cruelty
  • Imprisonment for certain crimes, such as rape

Regardless if your spouse agrees with your decision to move forward with a divorce or not, nothing can stop you from pursuing the dissolution of your marriage. As long as one party believes the marriage can no longer work, it is enough to set the process in motion.

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.
