Separation Attorney in Somerset County, New Jersey

In the state of New Jersey, separation is different from divorce. Because this issue can be confusing for couples, it's best to consult a qualified New Jersey Separation Lawyer if you are interested in separating from your spouse.

About Separation in New Jersey

New Jersey courts do not grant or recognize legal separations. In order to separate from your spouse, you must simply live apart from him or her. For many couples, this process provides some much-needed time and space. While some couples ultimately decide to divorce, others may reunite in the future after working through some of their issues.

Seeking Legal Counsel

Even though you don't need to go to court to become separated, most separations cause certain practical issues to arise that may require formal legal agreements. Examples of common issues include asset distribution, custody arrangements, child support, and spousal support.

Please call the office today to learn more about our services, discuss your situation in detail or schedule a consultation with our legal team.
