Property Division Attorney in Fairfield County
Protect Your Property with a Seasoned Divorce Lawyer
Connecticut has no law stating that marital property must be equally distributed between two spouses in divorce. Connecticut is, however, an "equitable distribution" state, which means that the family law courts will divide marital property between the two parties in a manner that they determine to be "fair." This rarely means an equal 50/50 split, which is why you need a Fairfield County divorce attorney to fight for you.
Happy Even After can represent you in a contested divorce, as well as in uncontested cases such as collaborative law. Our legal team can help you work out a fair division of your property with the other party, or we can litigate aggressively for the court order that you deserve.

Property Division in Uncontested Divorces
Not every divorce has to involve hot disputes and courtroom trials. In fact, most divorces are handled outside of the courtroom through collaborative law or through mediation. In these cases, the two spouses work out the division of their property on their own with the counsel of their own separate attorneys, or with the guidance of a neutral, third-party mediator.
Our firm is here to help if you are considering either collaborative law or mediation. These methods of divorce are generally faster and more affordable than litigation, so give us a call for a consultation to see if either choice is right for you.
Property Division in Contested Divorces
Contested cases are much more difficult and require the representation of a skilled trial lawyer. Happy Ever Aftercan provide a seasoned and aggressive divorce litigator to serve as your advocate in a contested divorce case. Only a knowledgeable lawyer will have the skill and experience needed to ensure that you receive the property that you deserve in a fair court order.
