Legal Separation Tenacious & Effective Legal Advocacy

Legal Separation Lawyer in New York City

When Divorce Is Not the Option

Divorce is not always the right decision. Some couples want to have the time and space to try to repair a marriage, or may choose to remain married due to religious convictions, or other matters related to finances or health. When the two parties in a marriage have come to the decision to separate, a legal separation agreement should be put in place.

This agreement often will act as a blueprint for a divorce agreement in the future. All of the critical issues will be addressed in a well-crafted separation agreement, including:

  • Child support
  • Responsibility for paying debts
  • Mortgage payments
  • Parenting time

Work with Our Professional Attorneys

At H. Benjamin Perez & Associates, P.C., we have an uncommon level of professional skill to bring to the table to assist you. It is extremely important that your rights and interests are protected if you are planning to separate from your spouse. Putting a legal separation in place allows you to protect yourself from financial damage that could occur if you fail to ensure that the expenditures made by your spouse while living apart are not your responsibility. Marriage is a legal contract, and you can be held responsible for debts incurred by your spouse if you are not legally protected by a separation agreement that has been approved by the court.

Part of the process is to consult with an NYC divorce lawyer so you can get information about how state law could impact a separation with regard to financial matters, as well a child custody and visitation. What you do now could affect the future if you are later divorced, and the legal separation agreement should be crafted with a great deal of attention to detail. Find out more about a legal separation, what it entails, and what impact it will have on your financial and personal life by consulting with our attorney.

We are here to help you move through this time of transition with all of the legal matters under control, and your rights and interests protected. Call us now at (646) 770-0989 for the representation you deserve.
