Grounds for Legal Separation in Suffolk County
Legal Separation: Suffolk County Divorce Lawyer
Often married couples find themselves not wanting to get divorced, although
they want to go in separate directions and lead different lives from each
other. This is usually after being married for many years and there are
often kids to think about in making such a serious, life-altering decision.
There are multiple different circumstances that would allow for a couple
to legally separate, rather than obtain a divorce. In these certain circumstances,
a couple may have legal grounds for a separation: physical abuse, adultery
having been committed, spouse being sentenced to 3 plus years in prison,
voluntary separation, irreconcilable differences, and abandonment.
