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.
