Family Law

Connecticut Family Law Attorney and Certified Mediator

At the law firm of John C. Valliere, Attorney at Law, I am dedicated to helping clients resolve important family law concerns. My philosophy is straightforward: I help clients navigate the complicated legal system by making sure the emotional issues they face do not interfere with their ability to make important legal decisions.

Experienced Family Law Lawyer

Ever since I started the law firm of John C. Valliere, I have focused on family law in Uncasville, Connecticut. I have an understanding of the laws and regulations here, as well as the culture.

My legal background also includes my work with the family court in the Superior Court of New Haven, Connecticut, as a Sappern Fellow. In addition, I am a certified mediator and obtained a certificate from the University of Connecticut Labor Education Center, and Quinnipiac Center on Dispute Resolution.

I also have experience in a variety of areas, such as:

  • Divorce
  • Child Custody
  • Child Support
  • Prenuptial agreements
  • Same-sex unions
  • Unmarried parents’ concerns
  • Paternity
  • Collaborative law
  • Probate court
  • Qualified domestic relations orders

Approach to Mediation

At the law office of John C. Valliere, I recommend mediation as a valuable option to resolve a divorce. When children are involved, a peaceful and open-minded approach benefits everyone – especially children.

It is important to protect your assets and your legal interests. A parent’s primary goal, however, should be to develop child support, child custody or visitation options that put the child first. Mediation often facilitates a better post-marital relationship between the couple getting the divorce. When both parties come to a mutual agreement, everyone benefits.
