Under Connecticut law, the legal term for divorce is “Dissolution of Marriage.”
The goal of the attorneys at Rubin & Eldrich, P.C. is to resolve your case in the best way possible to serve your interests and those of your family. Your attorney will have the opportunity, once your case is fully prepared to negotiate a settlement. Experienced family lawyers and their clients can reach a tailored agreement addressing the rights and obligations of the parties in a more thorough manner and without the risks associated with a trial.

The best interests of your children are of paramount importance.
Children are entitled to the support they need, both financial and emotional, from both of their parents. Parents are free to make their own parenting plan related to the children’s residence and the time they spend with each parent. Our attorneys are mindful of the needs of children in a redefined family and will assist our clients in securing their parenting time.
Financial Support for children in a divorce is guided by the State of Connecticut Child Support Guidelines. The child support guidelines may also direct parents to pay for health insurance and to pay for child care for working parents. The attorneys at Rubin & Eldrich, P.C. will work for you to ensure that child support orders are entered that protect your interests and those of your children.
