A Separation Agreement Can Allow You Time To Think

In New York, the law now allows for a no-fault divorce. With a no-fault divorce, you and your former spouse need only establish there has been an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage for six months or more. However, you and your spouse may decide to live apart without going through a divorce. A separation agreement can allow you to settle some of the same issues as a divorce settlement, without going through with a divorce.

A Separation Agreement Must Include Specific Language

The separation agreement is a binding contract between a husband and wife that settles all of the issues relevant to their separation, including child custody, parenting time, child support, spousal support and the distribution of marital assets and debts. These agreements, or stipulations as they are sometimes referred to, must meet certain requirements in form and language.

Separation agreements are usually filed with the county where either party lives, and after one year, the parties may obtain a divorce based upon the terms and conditions of the separation agreement, if desired.

Our dedicated team of attorneys has helped many clients to negotiate legal separation agreements and to avoid the high financial and emotional costs, the long delays and the uncertain outcomes associated with trial.
