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.

Types of Visitation

As a divorced parent, you might have primary custody of your children. If this is the case, you will have the opportunity to be very involved in your child’s life, as you will be able to see him or her on a regular basis. You will also have the primary responsibility of taking care of your child. On the other hand, you might be the non-custodial parent and only have visitation rights. This can make maintaining a relationship with your child and staying involved in his or her life difficult. If you have visitation rights, it is important to understand what type of visitation you have so that you can plan your visits accordingly.

There are three major types of visitation. The first is unsupervised visitation. This is the type of visitation that is most commonly awarded in divorce cases. If you have just received unsupervised visitation rights from a court, it means that you will be able to take your children to your new home or on special outings without the intervention of the court. Keep in mind that just because these visitations are not supervised does not mean that they can occur at any time. You still have to stick to a regular visitation schedule. In some situations, certain restrictions can be placed on unsupervised visitations. For example, if you have a very young child who is still breastfeeding, you might be asked to conduct your visits at his or her primary house until the child is more self-sufficient.

Another type of visitation is supervised visitation. If you can only conduct supervised visitations, it means that another adult has to be present during your visits with your children. In some cases, you will be able to appoint the supervisor of these visits. For example, you could choose your child’s grandparent or another family member to act as a supervisor. In other cases, this supervision is more strict and the court will appoint a social worker or some other designee to be present during your visits. In more relaxed cases, you can still meet with your child in your own home or out on the town. In other cases, the court will appoint a location for you to conduct your visitations. Supervised visitation can be awkward, but try to make your child as comfortable with the situation as possible.

One fairly new type of visitation is virtual visitation. Virtual visitation comes in the form of communicating through email, social media, text messaging, or Skyping. This type of visitation is less common thank supervised or unsupervised visitation.
