Equitable Distribution We Can Help You Go From Unhappy to Happy Even After

What Is Equitable Distribution?

Understanding Connecticut's Property Division Laws

In the state of Connecticut, there are no laws stating that marital property must be equally divided between two spouses in a divorce. Rather, there are laws for "equitable distribution," which gives the court the power to divide property in any manner they deem to be "fair." This rarely involves an equal 50/50 division of property, which is why you need a New Haven County divorce attorney on your side to fight for your property.

Reasons to Hire an Attorney for Equitable Distribution

The way in which your marital property will be distributed depends on the type of divorce you are getting. In uncontested divorce cases, you and your spouse will work everything out yourselves with help from legal professionals. In contested cases, a family law judge will make the final decisions for you after your attorneys argue your cases.

Uncontested Divorce & Division of Marital Property

Are you and your spouse able to agree on "who gets what?" If so, then you could get a divorce through collaborative law or mediation. You and your spouse will sit down outside of the court and draft your own agreement regarding how you want to divide your property, as well as every other aspect of your divorce. Our firm can provide the counsel that you need during this process to ensure that everything is handled correctly.

Contested Divorce & Division of Marital Property

The equitable distribution process is more complicated for contested divorces. In this type of divorce, you need a divorce attorney who is experienced at trial. Your lawyer will need to present a strong case on your behalf in order to fight for a fair division of property. Happy Ever Afterwill work hard to protect your property and help you keep what is yours after a divorce.

    I had to find an attorney and the Happy Even After was highly recommended to me so I made my consultation with Renée. Right away I felt at ease. Renée took some of my worries away and she reassured me this is all normal procedure in getting a divorce. Renée was very professional, respectful, polite and kind... Renée was very thorough and smart when it comes to divorce and child custody especially for fathers’ rights. Everyone in her office was very professional, polite and caring. The paralegal was very helpful. She would get things done ASAP and if you needed something, she would send it through email right away. It was always a pleasure speaking with her on the phone, in person or through email. I also had the pleasure of working with Leslie who prepared my financial affidavit. She was always a pleasure to speak with, very polite, professional and helpful. Leslie would walk me through something I did not understand step-by-step or would find the answer for me. Overall, the whole firm was excellent. I highly recommend Happy Even After to anyone that's going through a divorce..... thanks for the positive experience from Renée and her law firm!!!!
