Legal Separation Attorney in Nassau County

Why Get A Legal Separation?

Due to marital discord and alienation, many couples want to begin living separate lives but are not sure if divorce is the best route. If you are not ready to pursue divorce, for whatever reason, legal separation may be the proper route for you. Some couples believe that legal separation prior to divorce will make the process easier and less expensive.

For others, the reason for legal separation is because of religious convictions or medical insurance reasons. Regardless of the reason for pursuing separation, you will likely face substantial difficulties along the way. For that reason, having a knowledgeable legal guide can be crucial to securing a favorable case outcome.

Steps to Obtaining Legal Separation

In New York, there are two ways to become legally separated. The first is by entering into a separation agreement and the second is by asking the court for a separation judgment. Judgments can be granted based on any of the following grounds:

  • Cruel and inhuman treatment
  • Abandonment
  • Non-support of spouse
  • Adultery
  • Imprisonment for three or more years

Your next step will be to determine which court you will need to file for separation in, which will generally depend on the county where your spouse resides. At Jason M. Barbara & Associates, P.C., we can help you obtain the proper forms and fill out the necessary documents in the correct manner. Call us today at (516) 406-8381 to learn more.
