New York Legal Separation Attorneys

Protect Your Rights During Legal Separation

A legal separation is an alternative to divorce that gives parties additional time to decide whether divorce is the right option. In some cases, legal separation is preferred because of financial benefits, religious beliefs, or to protect the best interests of children. When entering a legal separation, your rights are still at stake, so it is important to consult with an experienced advocate in New York City, Westchester County and Rockland County, New York.
