If you are going through a divorce in Connecticut, you may have some concerns about your financial future. At our law firm, we help clients protect their personal property during a divorce and ensure that marital property is divided fairly. We work hard to help people like you work out an agreement about property division that places you in a positive position going forward.
In Connecticut, marital property is divided according to equitable distribution laws. This means that all of the marital property and shared debt from a marriage will be divided according to what a judge decides is fair based on a number of different criteria. While property division is still being worked out, we can help to ensure that all of the marital assets are valued accurately. We can also assist you with the process of securing qualified domestic relations orders for your retirement funds and dividing secured and unsecured debts.
Before a final order for property division is issued in a divorce, temporary orders can be used to help ensure that the value of certain assets is protected. If that is necessary, we will help you to secure temporary orders for the possession of your marital home, bank accounts and other valuable assets. In addition to protecting these assets from devaluation, temporary orders may help to set an important precedent for the final property division order.
There are times when financial dishonesty and fraud by one spouse can result in a judgment that must be modified later on. At our firm, we are prepared to handle these kinds of complicated marital property division cases.
