Westchester County Separation Agreement Lawyer

Get Help from Divorce Attorneys in Westchester, NY

In New York, a married couple needs a legal reason (grounds) to file for divorce. When there is an absence of adultery, cruel and inhumane treatment, abandonment and imprisonment, a couple may execute a separation agreement in order to qualify to file for divorce under New York law.

Through the execution of a separation agreement, the parties will live separate and will also make provisions regarding child custody, visitation and more. After living separately for a minimum of one year, either party may then file for divorce.

Before you consider drafting or signing a separation agreement, it is essential that you consult a knowledgeable Westchester family attorney as soon as possible. You need to ensure that all issues are addressed in the agreement and also that your position and interests are protected so the agreement suits both parties involved. Because major issues such as custody and visitation will be sorted out, it can be disastrous if you do not work with an attorney. Chances are that your spouse will be working with an attorney, and you need skilled representation of your own.

Contact a Westchester County separation agreement attorney to discuss the terms of your separation agreement and whether this is the best option for your future.
