New Haven County Divorce Attorneys

Filing for a Contested Divorce in Connecticut

A divorce is considered “contested” when the parties involved cannot agree on the terms without the court getting involved. Whether the disagreement is over child custody, alimony, the division of assets, or another related issue, the court must be involved to resolve disagreements in order to settle the matter.

Divorces are most often contested based on custody or financial issues, and often take several months to settle. At Law Offices of William P. Burns Jr. LLC, our New Haven County divorce lawyers can help you. Call us today at (203) 723-9420

  • During a contested divorce, attorneys on both sides will gather information from the other spouse including:
  • Assets owned
  • Debts and other liabilities
  • Business records
  • Financial documents, including investments and bank statements
