Forthright Advice, Compassionate Support, and Steadfast Advocacy

“Divorce” is never an easy word to hear – or an easy idea to contemplate. Whether you’re the one filing for divorce or the one who had to hear your spouse utter the word first, divorce is a life-changing experience. You deserve compassionate, caring, professional support to navigate the challenges and seize the opportunities that come with it.

When you’re at the start of a divorce case, the terrain ahead can seem daunting. How can you protect yourself? Should you fight any lingering feelings of resentment or vengeance – or give in to them?

At Klein & Babbitt, we recognize that you don’t need any added stress during a divorce. That’s why we’re committed to taking an above board, fair, and calm approach to your divorce case.

We start by offering you a “judgment free” zone in which to discuss your honest feelings, plans, and goals surrounding the divorce and your future life. Since your communications with us are always confidential, you can speak your mind secure in the knowledge that nothing you say will leave the room, and that we won’t judge you for it, either.

Once we know more about the specifics of your situation, we’ll provide personalized advice as well as an overview of the major challenges and opportunities you can expect to face during the divorce. We’re known for being blunt: we’ll tell it like it is, but we tell you the truth because we care about your future, and we want you to be prepared for what’s ahead.

Although many divorcing couples fear the specter of litigation, the overwhelming majority of divorces in Connecticut, even the contentious ones, are settled without going to trial. Our office provides other methods for settling divorce disputes including mediation and collaborative divorce. Even when a divorce heads to litigation, there are still many settlement opportunities along the way, such as four way meetings and pre-trials. If, however, a matter cannot be settled, we will not hesitate to bring your issues to a hearing or trial.

We’ll do everything we can to smooth the road to divorce and ensure that you and your children get what you need to build a promising future. And if we need to go to trial, we are fully prepared to do so.

Throughout the process, our biggest questions are always: What are your goals? What sort of future do you want to build after divorce? How can we ensure that you get there?
