Lady Divorce

I am Attorney Marissa Bigelli and I concentrate my practice on Divorce and represent both men and women in Connecticut.

 

I am a Connecticut divorce attorney who represents people who wish to end their marriage. I have 2 offices and handle cases statewide.  My main office is in Milford, which makes it convenient to handle cases in both the Fairfield and New Haven Judicial Districts.  I also have an office in the greater Hartford area.

If you or a family member is dealing with a divorce, you need a lawyer who can advocate for you, can deal with the legal proceedings and protect your legal and financial interests.  I will be that attorney.

I handle cases:

  • With contested child custody
  • With cheating spouses
  • For stay at home moms
  • As guardian for minor children in divorces
  • If you have been served or wish to start the process

 

My clients are normal everyday people who, just like you, find themselves going through the end of their marriage. I make sure the system and the lawyers treat you with the dignity you deserve.

Hope is not a strategy.  Call me today to get peace of mind knowing you have a trained Connecticut Divorce lawyer on your side.

You can sleep easy tonight with LadyDivorce on your side!

4 Steps for Dealing with Your Ex’s Remarriage

The day that you never thought would come has come – your ex spouse has announced that he or she is getting remarried. Maybe you are relieved. Maybe you are happy for him or her. Maybe you feel depressed and shocked, even if you thought you were over your relationship already. No matter what your immediate reaction is, you need a game plan so that you can deal with your ex spouse’s remarriage in a healthy way and help your children through it as well. Consider the following steps to deal with your ex’s remarriage.

  1. Don’t be negative: When you first learn that your ex is going to get remarried, it might come as quite a shock to you. However, you should refrain from making any negative comments about the marriage to your ex or your children. If possible, congratulate your ex. If you can’t bring yourself to do that, don’t say anything at all. And don’t badmouth your ex or his or her fiancé to you children – this will make them uncomfortable and might damage the relationship that they have with your ex or his or her fiancé.
  2. Mourn if you need to: Maybe you thought that you had accepted your divorce and moved on, but the news of your ex’s marriage has brought up old feelings. It is ok to mourn your marriage all over again. At this difficult time, you should consider confiding in friends or family members who can help you through this. If you find yourself seriously depressed for a long period of time, seek out a therapist to help you.
  3. Foster your children’s relationship with your ex’s new spouse: This might be the last thing that you want to do, but you have to put your children first in this situation. Even if you do not particularly like or get along with your ex’s new spouse, your children will be spending a lot of time with him or her and need to know that it is ok to accept him or her into the family. Again, don’t badmouth your ex or his or her new spouse in front of your children or ask them to take sides.
  4. Identify problems honestly: If you have a problem with your ex’s new spouse, honestly reflect on why this might be. Are you simply jealous or resentful? Or are there legitimate reasons why you dislike this person? Even if you do not get along with him or her, if he or she treats your children well that is really all that matters in this situation. However, if you think there are real warning signs there, and your children are uncomfortable with this person for legitimate reasons, you should consider gently discussing the issue with your ex.

Whether you have moved on or not, learning that your ex spouse is remarrying can be shocking and uncomfortable. It is important to be honest with yourself about your feelings and put your children’s best interests first in this situation. Now is the time to truly move on from the divorce if you have not already done so. Following the above steps will help you do so!
