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. The grounds for a legal separation are quite similar to the grounds for divorce, so often this decision is made to preserve health insurance benefits as well as the possibility of reconciliation.

Contact a Suffolk County separation lawyer for experienced legal guidance during the separation process.

Legal Separation Agreements

Much like a divorce, determining important details such as child custody and support, spousal support is the goal so that a written separation agreement can be reached. In such a case, it is important that you have a lawyer's assistance with ensuring that all the legal issues are addressed in a carefully drafted separation agreement.

As in a divorce, the court can determine all of those issues and the distribution of a married couple's assets if they cannot come to an agreement. Another 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.
