Content is provided by the firm.Louden Katz McGrath practices all matters related to family law, marriage and divorce. Our family law attorneys listen carefully to our clients and provide thoughtful counsel designed to secure fair and equitable results.
The firm's practice includes divorce (dissolution of marriage), child custody and parenting issues, asset division, alimony, legal separation, father’s rights, child support, civil union and domestic partnership issues, and prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. Our work extends to such related areas as business, real estate, retirement plans, child development, taxes, estates and trusts, and the emotional impact of divorces.
The term "family law" broadly encompasses all that we do. "Matrimonial law" and "divorce law," while often used synonymously with "family law," technically are narrower, applying only to legal issues related to marriage.
Although much of our practice involves litigation, many of our cases are settled through negotiation rather than trial. We have tried many cases, however, when reasonable settlements have not been secured.
Through divorce mediation and collaborative divorce, we offer couples a sane, respectful and non-adversarial approach to end their marriages with the least amount of acrimony and professional intervention possible. If these methods are not appropriate, we file a litigation case and pursue the matter to court if necessary. While based in Hartford and New London counties, our lawyers serve clients throughout Connecticut, handling divorce cases in most of the judicial districts in the state.
