Divorce and Family Law Services in Darien, Connecticut
Connecticut law firm skilled at high net worth divorces serving Darien, CT 06820
Life in Darien can certainly look and feel idealistic. Aside from its beaches, golf courses, equestrian parks, bustling arts calendar and top-rated schools, the town affords residents easy access to New York City and no shortage of palatial homes. Darien’s exclusive sanctuary is enviable with its beach, yacht, racquet, riding and country clubs — Tokeneke Beach Club, Noroton Yacht Club, Ox Ridge Riding and Racquet Club, Darien Country Club, Wee Burn Country Club and Woodway Country Club — but the favored lifestyles in one of the wealthiest communities on Connecticut’s “Gold Coast” led by many Darien residents can make divorce and family disputes more complicated than in other parts of Connecticut. At Needle | Cuda, our dedicated attorneys take a personal approach to protecting the best interests of Darien clients.
Fairfield County attorneys personally connected to the communities they serve
The attorneys and legal staff at our firm have longstanding personal connections throughout Fairfield County. We’ve lived in Fairfield County our entire lives; raised our families here and are involved in many of the communities and events. We interact with our Darien neighbors and Blue Wave supporters on a daily basis, whether on Metro North, at local restaurants, on Beach trips to Weed Beach or Pear Tree Point, chilling at Cherry Lawn Park, hiking at Woodland Park Nature Preserve or when cheering at children’s sporting events at Middlesex Middle School and Darien High School.
While just under 13 square miles, its six main sections are truly distinctive and absolutely gorgeous: Noroton, Ox Ridge, Noroton Heights, Springdale, Long Neck Point and Tokeneke. We are proud of Darien High School’s achievement of being ranked as No. 1 in the “U.S. News Best High Schools in Connecticut” in 2019, Ranked in the top 150 High Schools Nationally, and as one of the Top 50 STEM high schools in the U.S. There is also a longstanding rumor that Darien is pretty good at Lacrosse 😉

Experienced family lawyers tailor services to Darien, CT client priorities
We provide skilled legal representation for Darien residents in all areas of family law, including:
- Alimony — A fair spousal support order often depends on each spouse’s commitment to full financial disclosure. Our legal team negotiates and litigates appropriate alimony awards, searching for and recovering hidden assets if necessary.
- Property division — Median home prices in Darien are steady at about $1.5 million. Many residents also own high-value property such as boats, horses, fine art and luxury vehicles. We work tirelessly to help our clients acquire their fair share during asset division through settlements and litigation.
- Child support — When combined parental income exceeds the upper limit of Connecticut’s child support guidelines, or if there is extraordinary income disparity between the parents, a court can deviate from presumptive support amounts. We make sure to account for all factors that may influence child support calculations.
- Child custody and visitation — Our team works with parents to negotiate custody agreements and parenting plans that help their children grow up with the love and resources they deserve.
During contentious divorces, when mediation and alternative dispute resolutions fail to bring about acceptable solutions, we zealously pursue our clients’ interests through litigation.
