The outcome of a divorce can have a tremendous impact on many areas of your life.

Legal separations in New York
There are times where couples facing marital problems are ready to end their marriage but are not ready to handle a divorce. A legal separation addresses all the legal issues involved in a divorce but does not put an end to the marriage. The Law Offices of Randy S. Margulis can help you set up a separation agreement with your spouse without going through the full divorce process.
A separation agreement can be essential in evaluating marital assets in anticipation of divorce, setting monetary values for spousal and child support, and establishing child custody arrangements during the separation period. One advantage offered by separation agreements is that spouses can usually continue to enjoy existing health insurance benefits during the separation period. Moreover, being legally separated for one year, pursuant to a valid separation agreement, is considered a ground for divorce in New York. If you choose to end your marriage after the year, it is easy to convert the separation agreement into a divorce.
