Legal Separation in Suffolk County
Long Island Separation Attorneys Based in Huntington, NY
For some struggling couples,
divorce is not the solution they are looking for to put an end to the problems
they are currently experiencing. In these cases, separation may be a better
alternative. Separating from your spouse will not legally end the marriage;
however, it will effectively allow both individuals to live separate and
apart from one another without claims of abandonment being made. This
is accomplished through a court order that includes an outline of each
person's specific rights and responsibilities during the time spent apart.
Our firm can help any couple considering the idea of separation make an
ultimate decision. Issues such as
visitation schedules, and
equitable division of assets can all be established in a separation agreement that is prepared by your
lawyer. Oftentimes, a couple chooses to legally separate for a period
of time in order to determine whether or not dissolution of the marriage
is truly the right decision for them. The time spent apart, the ability
to abide by the terms of the separation agreement and other personal factors
will all go into the ultimate decision of whether or not to divorce.
The Importance of Retaining Skilled Counsel
When termination of a marriage is ultimately decided upon and it proceeds
a time of legal separation, there is often little need for divorce litigation.
That is not to say that a Long Island divorce attorney will not need to
be involved in the process; it simply means that a highly contested battle
in court will likely not exist because the separation served as a trial
period that proved to be effective. Instead, your divorce attorney will
more likely act as a
mediator who can help you make the final determinations on exactly what your life
after divorce will look like.
