A very interesting and peaceful type of jurisdiction is the ‘uncontested divorce’. It basically the type of divorce in which a couple has lived separately for over an year and they are not fighting or contesting the right for any child or other physical or tangible possession.

An uncontested divorce in CT depends on various formalities. The either of the spouses must have lived in Connecticut for at least 12 months; in case of domicile, either of the spouse must have returned with intentions of permanent residence before filing the plea of divorce and so on.

The actual divorce takes place in the Connecticut Superior Court. A Superior court is present in each district. The person filing the divorce is called a ‘plaintiff’ and the person responding to it is called the ‘defendant’. The court serves legal separation so a complete follow up of the legal procedures is required. There is however a catch, being legally separated gives neither spouse the ability to remarry. There is also a 90 day “cool off” period in which the couple may re-negotiate their terms. If an agreement is decided upon and is uncontested the couple acquires dissolution of matrimony. The couple is then to decide upon the terms and conditions of the separation regarding division of assets, child support etc.
