Tips for Drafting your Dissolution Agreement
Helpful tips to ensure that your dissolution agreement is a thorough and comprehensive one.
CompromiseIn a divorce action, it is easy to get caught up in the emotional aspect of the separation. As a result, parties often find themselves fighting over trivial issues. It is important to focus on bargaining fairly and fighting for things that you genuinely need and have a legitimate desire to keep. Remember that Connecticut is an equitable distribution state and a judge is likely to render a judgment that is going to award less than you bargained for. Willingness to agree on the issues will give you much more control over your divorce.
The Parenting PlanAfter your divorce is finalized, your access to your children will be governed by your parenting plan. It is important to remember that your parenting plan is incorporated into your divorce decree and becomes an order of the court. Any intentional and wilful violations of the parenting plan could result in a finding of contempt of a court order. Thus, it is important that your plan is thorough and feasible.
