Where can I find additional information about divorce laws in Connecticut?

The State of Connecticut Judicial Branch has the following information:

  • court forms for your divorce proceeding;
  • a video on how to file for divorce; and
  • a do-it-yourself divorce guide, which includes topics like what you should do if you are experiencing domestic violence and considering divorce, a glossary of common words you may encounter in your divorce, the divorce procedure, and alimony.

WomensLaw.org is unrelated to the above organizations and cannot vouch for the accuracy of their sites. We provide these links for your information only.

You will find more information about divorce, including the risks of taking your children out of state while a divorce is pending, on our general Divorce page. To watch brief videos about divorce in Spanish with English sub-titles, go to our Videos page. Lastly, learn more about the court process on our Preparing for Court – By Yourself page.
