Almost every couple experiences difficult times. Some turn to divorce. Some take an intermediary step and seek a marital separation. At Aretsky Law Group, P.C., in Ridgewood, New Jersey, we help couples come to a consensus regarding the terms of their separation and draft separation agreements.Protecting the Rights of People Seeking a Marital Separation
Marital separation agreements are often the basis for divorce agreements when couples are unable to resolve their differences. Consequently, it is important to seek legal advice prior to signing any separation agreement. Many of the issues involved in a marital separation agreement are the same as those in a property settlement agreement:
People seek marital separation for a variety of reasons. Some are not ready for divorce; some seek separation for moral or religious reasons; some want to avoid the economic consequences of a divorce. Separation agreements allow couples to establish all the terms of their separation formally, from economic responsibilities to personal conduct.
It is important to recognize that while marital separation agreements resolve many of the same issues as a divorce settlement, couples that are separated are not divorced and cannot remarry. We strive to protect the current and long-term interests of our clients seeking separation agreements.Contact Our Hackensack and Bergen County Marital Separation Lawyers
