What you need to know
Even though the relationship between you and your spouse has changed and you may no longer be living together, until you are legally divorced, you are still married. The legal ramifications of being married vary from state to state, but generally speaking, until you are divorced you and your spouse have certain rights and obligations to one another. In general, until you are divorced not only can you not remarry but also anything you obtain may be subject to a claim of ownership, in whole or in part, by your spouse, and the future ownership of assets and property already obtained may be unclear.

In order to get a divorce in Connecticut, one of the spouses must be a resident for at least 12 months. However, the divorce case can be started immediately once one spouse moves to the state with the intent of living there indefinitely. The law only requires that the spouse be in the state for the full 12-month period by the time the court issues the final judgment.
