During the dissolution of a marriage in Connecticut, people are often focused on getting to the end of the process and, at last, finalizing the divorce. However, even after the divorce has been finalized and issues such as property division and asset distribution have been addressed, a person must still work to secure his or her financial future. Couples who are going through divorce can shield themselves financially in several ways after splitting up with a spouse.
Most public employees can't do it. Neither can parents. Neither can those Connecticut couples with more than $35,000 in joint property, nor can those who have been married more than 8 years. What is "it"? "It" is taking advantage of the state's new expedited divorce process that can allow judges in certain circumstances to grant a divorce without even holding a hearing.
