New Jersey Separation Agreement Lawyers

In New Jersey, legal separation does not exist in the legal framework. It is not a document or a stage of the divorce process. New Jersey law’s irreconcilable differences clause lets you divorce by stating that the marriage has been deteriorating for at least six months. You can live together during this period and you do not need to file documents prior to the divorce.At Hanan M. Isaacs, P.C., we understand that it can be confusing to keep up with divorce laws. It is best to discuss your case with an experienced divorce attorney rather than on information from family or friends. We will review your case and explain your options. To arrange a consultation with a central New Jersey attorney, please call 609-683-7400.

We Can Draft A Separation Agreement

People often confuse legal separations with separation agreements, which are legal documents. While they are not required for a divorce, separation agreements can be useful if you have complex assets or the divorce may be contested. We can discuss whether a separation agreement would be beneficial to you and, if you wish, draft an agreement.

You do not need a separation agreement before you get divorced, however, some couples choose to create one. A separation agreement does not legally dissolve a marriage. It is a legal document detailing the terms of property division, spousal support, child custody and parenting time, and child support. We can draft an agreement that covers your marital assets and debts, including financial accounts, loans, real estate, personal property and retirement plans.

If you are considering a separation agreement, work with a lawyer to draft it. A separation agreement must be legally binding to protect your rights if you eventually divorce.
