WHAT TO EXPECT FROM A LEGAL SEPARATION
When a couple decides to separate, they enter into a legal process that stipulates financial and child-rearing responsibilities while keeping the marriage of the couple legally intact. A legal separation can be created through a separation agreement or by a court decree.
During a legal separation in New York, a couple must still carry out all the ordinary aspects of their daily lives, such as paying bills and helping children with their homework. These arrangements are often part of the separation agreement, which can specify how the duties of home and business life will be shared by the couple. Dividing assets and property, and even gaining temporary financial support can also be part of a legal separation.
The personal, moral, or religious beliefs of some couples make it impossible for them to obtain a divorce. For others, a divorce simply does not make sense. These parties often opt to obtain a legal separation in New Rochelle, White Plains or throughout Westchester County.
