What Are Separation Agreements?

At the law office of Robert W. Hiatt, P.C., our Staten Island separation agreement attorney helps prepare these agreements with as much detail as divorce documents. Our job is to ensure that the agreement is enforceable and holds up to legal challenges.

We are committed to aggressively asserting and protecting your rights through negotiation or litigation. Contact our New York family law lawyer online or call 718-979-8068 to schedule an appointment to discuss your situation.

Preparing Your Separation Agreement

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 Agreement Leading to Divorce Action

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.
