Property Division In Connecticut
When it comes to property division, Connecticut follows the rule of equitable division. This means that property is to be divided between divorced couples in a way that is fair and equitable. It is important to keep in mind that “equitable” is not synonymous with “equal,” and it is not enough to simply present a detailed accounting of the marital estate. You must also create a compelling narrative that argues for the fairness of your point of view. The goal is to help parties reach a workable resolution whether through negotiation, mediation and, only if necessary, effective trial presentation.

- Executive compensation and severance packages
- Family businesses
- Family trusts
