Are you having legal issues regarding marriage, divorce, or seeking custody of your children? One of our primary practice areas is family law. Attorney Allen can guide you through the challenges you may be faced with and protect your legal rights.
We know that family law matters can create a sensitive, stressful and complex dynamic. We recognize that every situation is intensely personal and unique. Our job is to provide you with practical legal guidance to effectively resolve your problem. Our attorneys are sensitive, caring, intelligent people with families of their own and can empathize with what you may be going through. We have experience resolving issues and achieving the best possible result for everyone involved. Here is what our clients have said.
Connecticut is a "no-fault" state, which means it is not necessary to prove that a spouse is at fault to legally end a marriage. Once the divorce is filed a set of automatic orders are entered which are designed to prevent one spouse from making changes to marital assets or insurance to the disadvantage of the other spouse. In most cases, divorces are settled without the additional trauma of having to go to trial.
In addition to traditional divorce proceedings, we provide a full range of family law legal services including mediation, legal separation, divorce litigation, contempt of court proceedings, divorce decree enforcements, post-divorce modification, child support, custody and visitation applications.
Divorce mediation has become a popular and effective alternative to a traditional divorce proceeding. This process, which involves both spouses and a mediator, can be considered a viable alternative if a couple can deal reasonably with each other. With the help of a skilled and compassionate mediator, the result can be positive for both parties. Attorney Allen is an experienced mediator who has been successful in helping couples to arrive at satisfactory arrangements for themselves and their family members by using the mediation process. Plus, this result is achieved while avoiding the time, stress, and expense of a traditional divorce court proceeding. Mediation is not a fit for every case, if you are questioning if mediation is a fit for you it is worth a discussion.
