Preparing Your Separation Agreement

In the state of New York, a divorce based on irreconcilable differences does not exist. You must allege a reason for a divorce. A separation agreement is way to essentially divorce without making any allegations about the other side. At the law office of Robert W. Hiatt, P.C., we bring the same skill set in handling divorce documents as we do in preparing separation agreements.

In preparing your separation agreement, we focus on asserting your rights and creating a document that is just as enforceable as a divorce decree. We take a business-like, detail-oriented approach to creating what serves as a stipulation of settlements prior to the actual filing of a divorce. This "test run" will likely lead to an uncontested divorce, as opposed to a contested divorce action.

Separation Agreements Leading to Divorce Actions

After a year of living apart under a separation agreement, you can move forward with a divorce. Arrangements related to child custody and child support, as well as division of property, will be finalized. Please know that we also handle any post-judgment issues beyond the finalization of your divorce. We will be your advocates throughout the entire process.
