What is Involved in a Legal Separation?

A legal separation is an alternative to a divorce. During a legal separation, you and your spouse will live separately and adhere to a binding agreement drawn up by your attorneys. The separation agreement is signed by both you and your spouse.

In this binding agreement, all of the pertinent issues which must be resolved are precisely described, including child custody, child support, living arrangements, spousal support, and other details. Our Bronx legal separation attorneys can help you prepare legal separation documents to ensure that they are precisely drafted and legally binding.

Another method for attaining a legal separation is through Judgment of Separation, which is a legal action for separation which usually precedes a divorce. After the Judgment has been filed for a period of one year, either spouse may initiate a no-fault divorce.

    "Done efficiently and in a thorough manner."
    Unfortunately, divorce is all too common these days. Thank God mine was uncontested and fairly simple. The entire process took 4 months.. I never had to go to court, and only had to visit the office twice. Done efficiently and in a thorough manner.

    "This attorney is amazing"
    I'm not fond of attorneys but this guy is great. He'll answer your question(s) and there's no pressure of signing any contact. He'll tell you what the family court law is and he will fight for the best interest. This attorney is amazing. I will keep his name and telephone number on my iPhone and will recommend him to everyone that I know who would need his services. Don't think twice, this is the man.

    "The law firm of Wayne F. Crowe provided me with the legal support and strength I needed during my divorce."
    My divorce was smooth and I am extremely happy with the settlement. After the divorce Wayne and his team also provided me with the legal support I needed to terminate my child support obligations and gain sole custody of my children. I am very pleased with the services provided and the outcome could not have been any better.

    "Great attorneys who listen and care"
    My case was a bit complicated but, I thank God that I was able to find the right law firm to represent me and help me get through such a difficult time. Everything turned out even better than expected. The prices are also great and reasonable.
    "They do what they say they are going to do and they will fight for your best interest. Please trust their judgment as it is a difficult process for everyone."
    I have went through a very difficult process. I went through two attorneys before meeting the Wayne Crowe Jr staff. I am so appreciative that I had the opportunity to have their staff work for me. I wish that I would have went to them first. Their staff Wayne, Caroline, Lee, Brian and Scott were all hands on and wonderful people. They not only cleaned up the mess the previous attorneys made. They were diligent, understanding and compassionate. I had the pleasure of having Caroline represent me and she is amazing.
