Protect Your Rights During Legal Separation

If you are considering divorce in New York, a legal separation agreement may be the best way to protect your rights and interests during the divorce process. A separation agreement can also be used to protect the best interests of the children.

Keep in mind: when you decide to separate from your spouse, it is important to consult with an experienced family law attorney as soon as possible in the process. Depending on the circumstances, your rights and your children’s best interests may be at stake.

What Can A Separation Agreement Do?

At Johnson & Cohen, LLP, our legal team has extensive experience in complex divorce matters and can effectively protect your rights before, during and after legal separation. We take the time to understand your objectives, identify the legal issues you face, and help you protect your rights.

Legal separation is a viable option for spouses who are not ready to finalize their divorce or who have made the decision not to divorce for other reasons. Benefits of a legal separation agreement may include:

  • Protection of legal rights
  • Preserve access to benefits
  • Religious interests
  • Establishment or preservation of custody arrangements

Our attorneys will take the time to inform you of your rights and options. We will review the circumstances of your case and provide the information advocacy you need to make the best possible decisions for your family. Remember: a formal separation agreement can help establish a status quo to be used when negotiating for a specific outcome in divorce proceedings.
