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!

What to do with the house in divorce

Confused Older Student

If you’re going through a divorce, you’ve probably got a million questions. What am I allowed to keep? How should I tell my family? What are we going to do about custody of the kids? Questions like these are probably zipping through your head all day. Another common question that a lot of people have when they are facing divorce is: what should I do with my marital home? Keep it? Sell it? Let my spouse stay there and move out? These are all viable options, and there is no right or wrong answer here. However, to figure out what is the best choice for YOU, consider the following pros and cons.

Keeping the house

In this time of confusion, it might seem like too much to take to have to go through this difficult process AND sell the house. Here are some pros and cons of staying in your marital home.


  • Security: In the midst of all this change, it will be comforting to at least remain in the same house
  • Routine for the kids: You’re not the only one who has to adjust to divorce. Maintaining a stable home life and routine for your kids is always a good idea. Staying in your house can help with that.
  • Standard of living: You’re accustomed to a certain standard of living, and you have a right to that standard even after divorce. Remaining in your house could help you maintain that standard.


  • What does your spouse think? Will your spouse let you keep the house? Or will he or she fight you tooth and nail for it? It might not be worth it to draw out yet another issue.
  • Costs: After you get a divorce, you might not be able to afford to pay rent or make mortgage payments – at least not right away.
  • Memories: Divorce means a fresh start. Getting that might be difficult if you live in a house filled with memories from your marriage.

Alternatives to keeping the house

If you decide that living in the marital residence is not the right choice for you, you have two other options – selling the home, or giving the house title/mortgage to your ex. If your ex wants to continue living in the marital residence, he or she can buy you out. You’ll get your share of the home equity and you can hand over the house title and mortgage to your ex. Or, the two of you can sell the house and split the profits.

Dealing with divorce can be stressful and overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be! Hiring a divorce lawyer can help you because a divorce lawyer can guide you through this process using his or her knowledge and experience.
