State of CT Recognizes Non-Adversarial Divorce

There’s some great news for many Connecticut couples who will be divorcing non-adversarially. As of October 1, 2015, Connecticut offers two new options which should help many couples limit the time and cost of their divorce:

First – a simplified, jointly filed, no fault divorce for couples married less than eight years with no children, limited assets, and meeting certain other conditions.

Second – especially valuable for my mediation and collaborative divorce clients, the ability to eliminate the 90 day waiting period and potentially divorce in a day.

The details and logistics of these new options are still being worked out. I’ll continue to report to you about these exciting new divorce opportunities in the months and years to come.
