Getting divorced soon in CT. Case management date is coming up. We agree on all issues. We have 2 kids ages 5-8 and we agreed on child support just below of the guidelines. Again, we both agreed on it.
Court Services said to bring Financial Affidavits, affidavit concerning children and the divorce agreement itself. I was told "Family Services" will do the other child support calculations that day. Other pamphlets I read in CT say I need about 6 other forms as well.
You will also need to have your parenting education completion certificates, advisement of rights concerning wage withholding, and the guidelines worksheet. You'd also be well advised to have an explanation ready for why you are devoting from the guidelines. You do not need the Department of Public Health statistical report any longer.
The checklists you should work from are the ones available in the literature available at www.jud.ct.gov.
On the Connecticut judicial website, www.jud.ct.gov, you will find everything you need to have and do to complete your divorce action. Ask the court services staff at the courthouse if you have any other questions. They are well-versed and highly competent in assisting pro se parties. The case management date is usually the statutorily-mandated minimum waiting period from the date of filing and is a place holder to encourage the parties to "get moving" on their action. So long as you have completed all the necessary forms and provided a workable agreement, you should be fine.
