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:
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.
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.
