Requirements for Divorce in Connecticut

Family courts have stipulations on who may file for a dissolution of marriage in Connecticut:

  • Generally, one or more of the spouses must have resided in the state for at least one year before the divorce decree can be issued.
  • Couples divorcing may file for either a “no-fault” or “fault” divorce.
  • If filing for a no-fault divorce, the couple will attest that there is no credible chance of reconciliation or repairing the marital relationship.
  • If one spouse doesn’t agree, they may choose to file for a fault-based divorce.
  • Grounds for fault may include adultery, fraud, desertion, habitual drunkenness, intolerable cruelty, imprisonment, or mental illness.
