Legal separation act in Connecticut says that any couple who with a mutual negotiation have
come to a decision to stay on their own and away from each other are liable to be separated
regarded they have cleared all liabilities regarding debts and custody of children, etc. It is to be
noted that once the couple are separated legally, they may live according to their wish on their
terms and grounds but cannot remarry until divorce.

In the course of time you can decide upon matters like alimony, distribution of assets, child’s
custody and other matters with mutual consent. When both the sides have settled these matters
they can appear for the proceedings of uncontested divorce in Connecticut.

Following are the documentary requirement for legal proceedings regarding uncontested divorce
in Connecticut keeping in mind the legal separation act.

      Divorce agreement (form: JD-FM-172)
      Financial affidavits (form: JD-FM-6)
      Dissolution of marriage report (form: JD-FM-181)
      Affidavit concerning military service (form: JD-FM-178)
      Wage withholding for support (form: JD-FM-1)
      Affidavit concerning children (form: JD-FM-164)
      Child support guidelines worksheet (JD-FM-220)
      Certificate of completion of parenting education program
      Advisement of rights (JD-FM-71)

However, there are some requirements for filing a divorce or legal separation in Connecticut.
They are as follows

       o   Either spouse must live there for at least twelve months before beginning the action,
           or,
       o   Either spouse must be a resident for at least twelve months before the final divorce
           judgment is entered; or,
       o   Either spouse must have been domiciled in the state and have returned with intention
           to permanently reside there before filing the complaint;
       o   The cause of the action happened after either spouse moved into the state. In cases
           involving support, the dissolution of marriage is filed in the county where the plaintiff
           resides.

The ground for filing uncontested divorce in Connecticut may be a non-faulty ground including
cases like irreparable collapse of the marriage and incongruity and voluntary separation for 18
months with no reasonable prospect of squaring off. On these grounds the course of divorce is
simple as stated above. However if the ground of divorce is faulty like adultery, life
imprisonment, confinement for incurable insanity for a total of five years, willful desertion and
nonsupport for one year, seven-year absence, cruel and inhuman treatment, fraud, habitual
drunkenness, and commission/conviction of an infamous crime, then there are another ways of
proceedings involved.
