In some cases, it is possible to obtain a seizure of your spouse`s interest in real estate. Once registered, the seizure will not completely nullify the rights of the parties who subsequently invoke a claim against the immovable property. Instead, any judgment you receive against your spouse who asks him or her to pay you money will be satisfied with the property before claims from people whose seizures were recorded after yours. The subpoena recommends that the notified spouse hire a lawyer and file a representation form on or before a given date, called a “return date” or “representation date.” The date of return or representation must be a Tuesday and must be at least twelve days after the service of the papers by the marshal. However, no one actually appears in court on the day of return or the date of representation. The spouse`s spouse or lawyer must complete and file with the court a form called an “appearance” so that all future communications, applications and briefs regarding the case are sent to the spouse`s spouse or lawyer. If this is not the case, the case can continue without further announcement. The complaint identifies the parties, their children, indicates the reasons for the divorce and determines the measures to be taken. The complaint is accompanied by a notification of automatic injunctions that prohibit the liquidation of assets and require the parties to exchange “complete [and] sworn financial statements within 30 days of the return date.” The Clerk assigns the complaint a file number that is used on all other forms. Once you and your spouse in Connecticut have entered into an agreement that provides for the division of your property, the distribution of your debts, and the custody and support of your child (children), you can apply to the court for an uncontested divorce proceeding. The case management agreement also contains a proposed divorce date, including the date on which requests for investigation are made, the discovery completed, the statements, assessments made and the disclosure of experts, and the time when the parties plan to be ready for a settlement conference in court.
This data is not set in stone and can (and does) move often. Sometimes it`s because they don`t work for the court, sometimes when the case develops, the data doesn`t make sense anymore. It is also important to note that you and your spouse may agree to proceed with your case more quickly than the timelines set out in your case management agreement, including obtaining an agreement and divorce. The defendant may file a cross-appeal on the same form as the complaint. . . .
