New York and Connecticut Legal Separation Lawyer

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 with the help of a New York and Connecticut legal separation lawyer through a separation agreement or by a court decree.

During a legal separation in New York and Connecticut, a couple and their attorney 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.
