Legally ending a marriage is much more than just screaming "I want a divorce!" during an argument with your spouse. In fact, although you've emotionally split with your partner, and may already be living at separate residences, actually ending the marriage in the eyes of the government takes much longer.

If and when you decide that it's time to legally terminate your marriage, and decide to work with our divorce lawyers, here's a brief idea of what you can expect from the process. While this is the general order of operations, please keep in mind that each divorce is different, and in some cases there may be many months between steps.


Realizing that a marriage is beyond the point of reconciliation is a difficult thing to swallow. When people get married, they're ensconced in the most romantic part of any relationship they've ever experienced. Then real life arrives, probably bringing with it some kids and added financial burdens. Personalities are pushed to the limit and weaknesses are tested. Some couples pass the test, and some, despite their best efforts, fail. If you've decided that reconciliation is no longer an option, it's time to think about hiring a divorce lawyer. At Cummings Law Firm, we're here to guide Waterbury area clients through divorce proceedings with experience and grace. However, there are a few things to think about before we get started.


According to recent statistics for the United States, nearly half of all first marriages will end in divorce.

Statistics show that approximately 65 percent of second marriages, and 73 percent of third marriages also meet this unhappy end. Ever optimistic, however, many Americans still choose to take their relationship to the next level every year. Though necessary in many cases, divorce can be an emotionally trying and financially taxing affair. As divorce lawyers in the Waterbury area, we see the good, the bad, and the ugly.
