Rosemarie Ferrante is a family attorney focusing on non-adversarial divorce through mediation and collaborative divorce. Rosemarie’s goal is to provide families the resources and tools needed to smoothly transition through the divorce process. Her practice helps couples who wish to separate or divorce in reaching agreements that foster goodwill and trust, while meeting each spouse’s individual goals and needs, while most importantly, supporting ongoing positive relationships with their children, and with each other as co-parents.
Rosemarie founded Divorce Resource CT and, in partnership with Hollis Hardiman, CDFA offers education, support and wellness workshops for individuals contemplating divorce. The workshops are offered throughout Fairfield County, CT and online.

My practice focuses solely on non-adversarial divorce. I also provide review counsel services for those participating in divorce mediation. I founded Divorce Resource CT and lead workshops for those contemplating or in the early stages of divorce, providing resources and information so individuals and spouses can choose the process and team that will best assist in transitioning their family smoothly through the divorce process. As Vice President of CCND (the Connecticut Council for Non-Adversarial Divorce) I am committed to educating the public and raising awareness about non-adversarial divorce processes in our state, as well as strengthening and broadening the community’s awareness of CCND and its mission to change the way people divorce or separate in CT by reducing conflict and improving the lives of family members – especially children.
