Our singular focus enables optimum results in divorce and family law cases
At Needle | Cuda, we focus exclusively on divorce
(dissolution of marriage) and family law
(which involves a wide range legal issues that arise pre-marriage, during a marriage, and post-marriage – both between spouses and in matters involving children and with parental rights). Our specialization allows our firm to keep abreast of all developments in Connecticut family law so we can better represent your interests.
A divorce matter (the dissolution of a marriage) has three main components that ultimately require formal resolution between the parties before an agreement can be presented before a family court on behalf of the parties: kids, assets, and income.
The component relating to kids (when applicable) includes physical custody and legal custody. Needle | Cuda has extensive experience resolving every kind of child custody dispute you can imagine (e.g. visitation, education, travel, religious education, medical/healthcare, relocation, Covid-19 related welfare concerns, etc.) and can expertly negotiate and define an enforceable, long-term parenting plan that works for you, your children and your life.
The component of a divorce matter related to marital assets involves a detailed accounting process through which the marital assets are both identified and valued so that an agreement may be formed to divide and distribute them. Assets typically include: real estate, investment accounts, retirement accounts, 401(k) plans, annuities, ownership interests in family and/or closely held businesses, and other types of complex property ownership (e.g. intellectual property, artwork, antiques, etc.) Needle | Cuda works extensively with an experienced network of valuation experts, accounting professionals, and subject matter specialists who can be called upon to complete complex property and business valuations that are unique to your situation.
