Legal Separation in Buffalo

New York Family Law Attorney with 13+ Years of Experience

For many couples, a legal separation is a decision that allows them to take a step back in their marriage without going through with a divorce. This extra breathing room can be a great benefit to help them work out their issues or it can be the decision that helps them realize it is time to end the relationship.

If you and your spouse are contemplating a legal separation, seek the help of an experienced Buffalo family law attorney from DePrima Law at (716) 638-2633!

Reasons for Legal Separation in New York

Regardless of the outcome, a legal separation can be a great choice to make with your spouse, and it is best handled with a skilled legal representative. Some couples may choose to separate for moral reasons, religious purposes, the hope for a possible reconciliation, or even for health insurance benefits.

Regardless of the reason, if you and your spouse are considering a legal separation in New York, you do not need grounds for a separation in order to draw up the separation agreement. Some couples may wish to live apart, and therefore need to make certain legal changes in order to arrange their own living situations. If you require a separation agreement between yourself and your spouse, we can help.

Negotiating a Separation Agreement

As with a divorce, a separation agreement will require you to make a number of decisions regarding child support, spousal support, shared parenting, and more. In a legal separation, you can work with your spouse to come to these decisions, alongside your lawyer. This is a great opportunity to set the terms depending on your specific needs and work together with your spouse.

Providing a Balanced Approach to Conflict

Gina DePrima is a family law attorney in Buffalo who works with divorcing couples through mediation as a neutral third part. This is also a skill she can bring to legal separation cases, working with both sides to come to an agreement that works for everyone involved. Not every couple is able to agree on the terms of their separation, and in these cases, the decisions can be left up to the court.

If you and your spouse are considering a legal separation, it is important for you and your spouse to be knowledgeable and understand the full legal scope of this arrangement. Family law cases can be complex, and with so much on the line, it is important to retain the guidance of a compassionate and experienced attorney.
