The Process Guiding Family Law

The Process Guiding Family Law

You may be familiar with the matrimonial law keywords, child support, custody, and divorce. After all, that’s what family law is, right? While being familiar with the vocabulary and having a vague idea about the process is better knowledge than none, it is extremely important to enlist the services of a trained matrimonial law professional when seeking to pursue your legal matter. In today’s blog, your Greenwich, CT attorneys look at the process guiding matrimonial law in the state of Connecticut, as well as how our team can help represent your best interests.

An Adversarial Process

As we mentioned previously, having a familiarity with elements of matrimonial law can help guide your selection of a legal representative. Once you have signed a retainer with your attorney, you not only gain insight into the process behind the scenes, but you also can ensure that each step is going to be followed correctly.

In the state of Connecticut, matrimonial law is considered to be an adversarial process. This means that two advocates represent their parties’ position or case before an impartial third party. An example might include two spouses seeking a divorce, in which one spouse is represented by an advocate and the other spouse is represented by a different advocate.

In terms of the third party, it is often a judge over a court of law. Not only is there a specific process that follows your matrimonial matter, but there are specific steps that must be followed precisely in order for the court to hear the case. To learn more about this process and how our team can help, give us a call today.

The Role of the Court

As we mentioned previously, the court is oftentimes the unbiased third party assigned to hear each side’s case and make a fair judgment. A trial can range in terms of duration anywhere from a few days to several months. Because each case is unique, the best insight you can obtain about other steps in the process is from a licensed attorney or paralegal. Contact our team to learn more.

This is where our team comes in to help, as we want you to feel as comfortable and confident throughout this process as possible.
