Connecticut Child Custody Law

Connecticut follows the Uniform Child Custody Act that includes options for joint custody and grandparents’ visitation, and considers the best interests of the child when determining custody terms. Some of the things the courts consider include:

  • The child’s preference and relationships with siblings;
  • Who can best provide for the child’s emotional, educational, physical and any other special needs;
  • Which parent is most likely to allow for a good relationship with the other parent;
  • Who will maintain a stable, consistent, loving relationship with the child.

Connecticut Divorce Law

Connecticut law allows a couple to divorce on “no-fault” grounds after they have been separated continuously for 18 months. It also includes legal grounds such as willful desertion, violence or adultery in granting divorces. Divorce courts also determine how property is split, so it is important to have an experienced attorney on your side.
