Divorce Law

What are the Laws in Connecticut about How Marital Property Will be Distributed After Divorce?

Connecticut is an equitable distribution state. In order to distribute the marital property fairly, a Connecticut Court will consider testimony of witnesses, whether it is desirable for a parent receiving alimony support to return to work or stay home with the children, the length of the marriage, the causes for the annulment, dissolution of the marriage or legal separation, the age, health, station, occupation, amount and sources of income, vocational skills, employability, estate and needs of each of the parties. (Connecticut Statutes Chapter 815j, Section 46b-81)
