Stages of a Divorce
1. In Connecticut it takes 90 days from the time of filing to complete a divorce. Around the 91st day you will return to court and if completely ready then the parties can get a final hearing on the dissolution. During those 90 days the couple must either come to an agreement on all the personal issues to be able to divorce on the 91st day or at your Case Management Date. If the parties are not in agreement on all or most of the issues then they will have to leave those issues for the court to decide.
2. When it comes to division of property, custody of children, or support it is always better for those who know the situation best to make the decisions. We at Evanko Law work with you and your ex-partner (as best as possible) to ease your transition and guide you in this often complicated and overwhelming process.
3. The court cost will be $360. The fee for service usually costs about $65.
4. Each parent may apply for custody of their child, which is done at the beginning of the case. However, if they cannot come to an agreement on their own, it is up to the courts to make a decision. The state of Connecticut will decide based on the best interest of the child. Should the parents not be able to decide the Court will often ask "family relations" to assist OR a party OR the court may request the assistance of a GAL (guardian ad litem).
Each parent will be required to attend a parenting class which at present runs approx. $125.
5. Parents must not forget all of the small decisions which if not handled now may cause trouble in the future. Some of those are:
Often for divorcing parents this is not a consideration. Would you want to leave those questions open?

3. Durable Power of Attorney
4. General financial Estate Planning/Trusts
You plan for vacations. You plan for your first home. You plan for your retirement, but you should also plan for your final wishes. For all the expenses a family has to take care of, the writing of a will or handling probate is not normally the top of the to do list. Writing a will is usually not at the top of anyone’s happy plans, but it is a necessary part of life. If you don’t decide what happens to your personal belongings then the state will and it will not likely be your wishes. Let us help you plan for the future that we all will face.
Living Will/Medical Directive
A living will is a written statement detailing a person's desires regarding their medical treatment in circumstances in which they are no longer able to express informed consent, especially an advance directive.
An advance medical directive is a document by which a person makes provision for health care decisions in the event that, in the future, he/she becomes unable to make those decisions.
Durable Power of Attorney
A durable power of attorney simply means that the document stays in effect if you become incapacitated and unable to handle matters on your own. (Ordinary, or "nondurable," powers of attorney automatically end if the person who makes them loses mental capacity.)
General Financial Estate Planning/Trusts
Estate planning is the act of preparing for the transfer of a person's wealth and assets after his or her death. Assets, life insurance, pensions, real estate, cars, personal belongings, and debts are all part of one's estate.
Trusts are a fiduciary relationship in which one party, known as a trustor, gives another party, the trustee, the right to hold title to property or assets for the benefit of a third party, the beneficiary.
There are two types of trusts:
For example, a trust can be used if a beneficiary is under age or has a mental disability that impairs the person's ability to maintain his or her own finances. Once the beneficiary is deemed able to manage the funds or assets by the terms dictated under the trust, the beneficiary will receive possession of the trust. The trust is taxed on any funds not distributed to the beneficiary.
What is personal injury?
Personal injury is a tort action where a person or his property is wrongfully injured by the negligence of another. A tort is a civil wrong for which the law provides a remedy in the form of damages.
Recoverable damages include the cost of medical and hospital bills, loss of earnings, lost earning capacity, property damage, pain and suffering, emotional distress and any other loss which can be proven in court. A personal injury can happen at anytime or place and is always unexpected.
Types of personal injury include slips and fall, auto accidents, assault and battery to name just a few.
We at Evanko Law can and will help you to get a fair result in the case. We will endeavor to get you the treatment you deserve and hold the other party responsible.
