Separation Agreements in Suffolk County
Suffolk County Divorce Attorney
When two parties are choosing to separate, it is important that you draft
a separation agreement that will address the financial and family responsibilities
of the marriage. Some choose to separate while they try to resolve their
marriage in the hopes that it can continue. Others may not want to divorce
for religious reasons, or just need to separate for other reasons. In
any such case it is important that all the legal issues are addressed
in a carefully drafted separation agreement.
A Suffolk County divorce lawyer from our firm can assist you to draft these
vital agreements. All of the crucial issues in separation will be addressed
in the document including
alimony and the responsibilities regarding the paying of outstanding obligations.
An advantage to a separation agreement is that health insurance benefits
can continue. When one party in a marriage has health problems this can
be an important factor.
Divorce Lawyer in Suffolk County: Separation Agreements
Many are restricted from getting a divorce due to religious beliefs. Others
may want to resolve their marriage and feel that time apart could assist
them to get the personal matters sorted out so that the marriage can get
back on track. A separation agreement outlines all the responsibilities
and duties of the couple so that nothing is left to chance. An advantage
in a separation agreement is that there is no time limit and the agreement
can be in place for an undetermined length of time.
It is vital that your agreement is drafted carefully, with your best interests
and rights carefully protected. Our staff at the office of
Steven P. Kuhn, Attorney at Law, has extensive experience in drafting separation agreements, and can discuss
your situation and advise you about how to proceed. A successful agreement
can be used for a divorce agreement later if the two parties decide to
proceed with marriage dissolution and all the vital matters will have
already been addressed.
