Divorce court is not for the weak of heart. Most divorces entail some measure of acrimony, but some are human tragedies that put soap opera writers to shame.
It is not often that a husband divorces his wife in order to marry her daughter, as Woody Allen famously did, but there are more cases than you might think where a marriage goes sour because of an affair with a spouse’s brother, sister, business associate or best friend. There are other cases where suspicion of marital infidelity leads to exposure of even worse crimes: rape, embezzlement, fraud, drug trafficking or pedophilia.
While Connecticut allows for “no-fault divorce,” meaning that allegations of misconduct are not required to seek or obtain a divorce, that does not mean that judges lack sympathy for an innocently aggrieved spouse. On the other hand, it is all too often the case that an angry spouse may make unfounded allegations that put the other party in a very bad light.
Good lawyering means presenting your case in the best possible light, so that a reasonable judge would be made aware of either mitigating factors in your favor, or aggravating factors that call into question the claims or demands of your spouse. You will find no better advocate than Attorney Carmina Hirsch, whose legal experience and courtroom skills are well honed given the variety of cases and clients she’s represented over the years. She will help steer your case to a fair settlement as smoothly and expeditiously as possible, and if settlement is not a viable or reasonable option given the unique circumstances of your case, design a litigation strategy to ensure a judge receives all relevant facts and evidence necessary to issue a decision.
