Ending A Marriage: What To Know
There are several ways to legally end a marriage in Connecticut. These are divorce (dissolution of marriage), annulment and legal separation. Of these three ways, divorce is the most common. As part of divorce proceedings, parties:
- Divide their property, and set alimony and/or child custody orders
- Decide custody and parenting schedules for minor children
- Set educational support orders (if applicable)
- Determine who will be responsible for costs such as health or life insurance
Divorce often takes around fourth months to be finalized, but it can take more or less time depending on your situation. While that can seem like a long time, that only refers to the divorce being completed. In the weeks after a divorce action is filed, the parties put together their financial information, negotiate with each other and can get temporary orders for support.
