Divorce and family law are all we do at Freed Marcroft. Our attorneys’ singular focus, without distractions, allows us to go “a mile deep” on all the highly evolving aspects of family law. Our dedicated family attorneys have the qualities you expect from powerful litigators, including a deep bench, legal knowledge, and an aggressive approach. However, our Connecticut divorce lawyers also have the compassion and conflict resolution skills necessary to provide non-adversarial resolutions for clients. We have extensive experience in all three family law options – litigation, mediation, and collaborative divorce – because what is most important to us is designing a divorce individualized to you, your goals, and your family.
Navigating Divorces with Children
For families with children, decisions surrounding parenting plans and child custody and parenting are often the most emotional aspects of a divorce. Freed Marcroft offers mediation and collaborative divorce, which allows and supports parents seeking agreement on parenting and child support outside of court. A non-adversarial method allows for a creative and flexible parenting plan that anticipates the future as your children grow. Plus, you and your co-parent will learn enhanced communication skills, setting you up to reduce the stress on everyone – especially the kids.
Custody and Support Modifications After a Divorce
When the court finalized your divorce, it issued a divorce decree. That divorce decree is a final, enforceable court order. Sometimes, some of that order doesn’t work for you and your family. In other instances, a spouse may not be following the order. Post-judgment issues deal with property division, child support, alimony, or the parenting plan. The Motion for Modification and the Motion for Contempt are probably the most common motions filed post-divorce in Connecticut. Another common Post Judgment motion is the Motion to Open the Judgment.
Freed Marcroft’s lawyers have the depth of knowledge and experience about divorce law, and with the Connecticut courts, to deploy the most strategic Post Judgment motions for you. In fact, filing motions isn’t always a necessary (or even preferable) first course of action. If you prefer to reach an agreement, rather than litigate, mediation and collaborative law are options to consider. In those cases, we submit the agreement you reach to the court so that it becomes an enforceable court order. There are other creative solutions that may meet your needs.
Types of Divorce
There are three ways to approach a Connecticut divorce, traditional (high-conflict) or cooperative (low-conflict) litigation, collaborative divorce, and mediation. Your Freed Marcroft legal team will help you understand the pros and cons of all three divorce options so that you can choose the approach that’s the right fit for you and your family. We have extensive experience in all divorce options because what is most important to us is designing a divorce individualized to you, your goals, and your family. The divorce option you choose should be based on you, not your attorney’s partiality (or absence of) training or proficiency.
