Resolving Divorce Matters in the Greater Bristol Area

Divorce is a frightening time, and there are numerous concerns for clients. How much will the divorce cost? Will you receive enough time with your children? Will you need to pay child support? What will happen with the house? Will someone need to move?

During all the confusion, it is helpful to have one person who can give you the objective answers you need. When you visit Margaret M. Hayes, that is what we strive to do. We will help you with all matters relating to legal separation, such as child custody, child support, alimony, and property division.

Advantages of Hiring an Attorney

When you are going through a divorce, it is important to reach an outcome with which both spouses can agree on. We strive to minimize unnecessary costs, avoid additional emotional turmoil and steer clear of adversarial proceedings.

Couples who are able to maintain an honest and amicable relationship after their divorce may be better suited by mediation than the adversarial divorce process. We guide clients through the process, helping them find the fair resolutions they are seeking.

Regardless of whether your divorce goes through mediation or the traditional court process, it is important to work with a lawyer as soon as possible. There is a 90-day waiting period, plus a formal filing service that normally takes about one month. It takes at least 120 days before the divorce is finalized, so contacting a lawyer as soon as possible helps begin the lengthy filing and notification process.

Same-Sex Divorce

Because Connecticut state law is different than federal law, the same-sex divorce process can be complicated and we can assist with that.

Contact our firm online or call 860-589-4121 to begin the divorce process. We can help you find a solution that matches your needs.
