Connecticut Divorce Rights


Divorce is defined as a legal separation of the spouses which leads to the dissolution of the marriage. There are courts which handle the cases of divorce. The United States of America consists of a total of fifty states and all of them their own exclusive divorce rights and divorce laws depending upon their societal norms. The government of the United States of America, however has been rather concerned about the number of divorce cases being filed in the country. USA tops the list of the countries when it comes to divorce cases in the world and Connecticut is no different. Hence, Connecticut divorce rights are important to understand to ensure that there is no injustice.

The court which settles the divorce related issues in Connecticut is known as the Superior Court. The court accepts the petition for the dissolution of the marriage only if either of the parties involved in the case has resided in the state of Connecticut for a period of minimum of twelve months. Also, if either of the parties involved in the case was residing in the state when the marriage was concluded and is returning to the state so as to permanently settle their, or the parties involved in the case decided to dissolute the marriage after moving into the state, the court can allow the parties to file a petition in Connecticut.

The grounds on which the court can allow the spouses to file a case for divorce may vary from case to case. Some of the general grounds on which the court allows the parties to file a case are: when the breakdown of the marriage is inevitable and circumstances are such that the marital relationship is impossible to continue, when the parties have lived separately for a continuous period of 18 months, when either of the parties has indulged in adultery, a total neglect of the family responsibilities, physical abuse or intolerable cruelty, a continuous absence of seven years, sentenced to life or mental illness for a total of five continuous years.

The Superior court in Connecticut may also follow a simplified procedure so as to arrive at the decision. The procedure is simplified when both the parties involved in the case submit a written stipulation declaring that the marriage has been broken down. This also includes the submission of agreements regarding the custody of the child, division of the property and the care, education and the welfare of the child.

Connecticut follows the principle of the equitable distribution of resources. Equitable distribution does not mean equal distribution of the property, it however, means a fair distribution of the resources acquired during the marriage so as to maintain the decorum between the two parties. If the court considers it essential to the case, it can also pass the real property to a third person or it can also pass an order to sell the property so as to reach a proper decision. Spousal rights involved in the case and the rights of the child are given due consideration by the court and the court delivers the decision only after considering the age, health and vocational skills of the parties involved.
