In every family law matter — whether involving a prenuptial agreement, divorce, alimony, child support, child custody, visitation and parenting plans, business valuation, property division or a post-judgment matter — our lawyers are sensitive to each client’s emotional and financial needs. We are committed to resolving each case efficiently and effectively. When appropriate, we are strong and assertive advocates, providing vigorous representation to our clients.

Divorce in Connecticut

We provide skilled, experienced and individually suited legal representation that is focused on achieving optimal results for our clients. Our attorneys are experienced in the trial and settlement of a wide range of divorce cases, including high net worth cases involving complex financial and tax issues.

Post-Judgment Issues

In the years following your divorce, your life will change substantially. A divorce agreement or parenting plan that was sensible at the time of your divorce may no longer reflect the realities of your life. In these situations, it may be necessary to formally modify your divorce agreement or parenting plan.

Child Support & Custody

Child support is potentially a major issue in any divorce, both for the parent who expects to pay child support and for the parent who expects to receive it. The amount of child support you can expect to receive or pay will have a meaningful impact on your finances in the years following your divorce.
