What is the Purpose of Legal Separation in New York?

In some situations, couples may not wish to divorce right away or may not be eligible for divorce, but still wish to live separately from their spouse.

Some common reasons a couple may choose legal separation over divorce include:

  • Legal separations allow both individuals to live separately and get some space
  • It allows time for the couple to completely establish a custody and support arrangement
  • The parties will be able to divide earnings and assets while still remaining legally married in the state of New York.

In order to determine eligibility for a legal separation or to learn more about these agreements, it is important that you contact a Queens divorce attorney from theLaw Offices of Donald Mastrodomenico, P.C. A dedicated member of our team can walk you through the legal process and help you understand the benefits of obtaining a separation agreement versus a divorce.

Separation Judgments and Separation Agreements

Prior to filing a separation agreement, it is important that you speak with our team. You and your attorney will discuss in detail your family arrangements, marital history and your long- and short-term goals to determine the best course of action to take. There are two ways that Queens couples can become legally separated. Based on the goals of your separation, you and your spouse can enter into one of the two separation conditions:

Separation Judgments
Judgments are granted by the court on the grounds of adultery, imprisonment, inhumane treatment or non-support of your spouse. These are court rulings that can eventually lead to a divorce.

Separation Agreements
If you and your spouse both agree that it would be best for you to separate, an agreement can be established. In these cases, you can determine child custody, support, and asset division.
