Negotiating and drafting marital agreements

Marital agreements are an important tool for couples entering into a marriage. Prenuptial agreements protect each party’s assets, but can also provide a higher level of spousal support than may be awarded by a court during a divorce. It is much easier to agree on division of assets and a fair amount of support when a couple is working together instead of battling at the end of their marriage. These agreements must be entered into voluntarily. Each party must have a chance to consult with independent counsel. The agreement may not be enforced if it is so unfair as to be unconscionable. Our attorney helps clients in the Litchfield, CT area draft prenuptial and postnuptial (post-marriage) agreements covering a wide range of issues.

Understanding legal separations in Connecticut

A legal separation under Connecticut law operates similarly to a divorce in terms of procedure. The main difference is that the parties are not free to marry again after a separation. A judicial decree of separation can be vacated if the parties resume marital relations. We help parties divide assets and deal with issues of custody during a separation. Our divorce lawyer can help you and your spouse draft an agreement that dictates the terms of your separation.
