Legal Separation

A legal separation allows a couple to divide and separate key components of their life without necessarily ending the marriage. This can include a wide range of legal agreements, including child custody, child and spousal support, and visitation. It often also involves the division of assets and property.

At Lerner • Poole, LLP, our family law attorneys have focused a significant portion of their practice on the separation of a marriage, including assets, business holdings and other property. We have the insight you need to navigate the process of dividing interests, even if your marriage itself is not ending.

Even if the separation is completely amicable, it is a prudent decision to have your own attorney represent your interests. This will ensure that knowledgeable and neutral legal representation is carefully evaluating the situation and providing an outcome that protects your interests, both now and into the future.

Once agreed upon, the contract must be signed by both parties authorizing the terms of the separation before it is signed off by a judge.

Sometimes issues arise during the creation of this agreement that neither party may have anticipated. Our attorneys will guide you through the new decisions, providing you the insight to make wise decisions that are best fitted to your situation.

We are equipped to handle property, asset and business valuations as needed. Our team possesses an intricate understanding of tax law and can accurately forecast future implications of the agreement.
