Many people considering divorce are understandably fearful of litigating their issues because of the time, cost, and emotional toll involved, as well the uncertainty regarding the range of outcomes that could be ordered by a judge after a hearing or trial.
Whether you are the plaintiff or the defendant, you need effective representation in your divorce case. You have a right to fair and equitable treatment under the law, but if you do not have the legal firepower to properly enforce your rights, you risk the loss of your desired outcomes to a determined and better-advised spouse.
Connecticut family court is a court of law and equity, which means that settlements and judicial opinions must be fair and equitable under the law, and in the minor children’s best interests. However, often fairness, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.
Whether your divorce is fairly amicable or a pitched battle over every issue, attorney Carmina (Tessitore) Hirsch will work with you to develop a litigation strategy that will help you to reach your reasonable goals, both cost effectively and with respect to ensuring the best interests of your children are maintained.
Litigation is not just a courtroom drama played out in front of a judge; prior to setting foot in a courthouse, there will be an extensive period of discovery relating to issues such as valuation of respective financial assets and debts, emotional stability and fitness as a parent, and inventorying all that exists in the marital estate. Documentation will be collected and exchanged. Negotiations and settlement conferences will take place in an attempt to achieve global resolution. Interrogatories and depositions may be necessary to create the basis for the formal procedures to come in the courtroom later in the case at trial.
