We Can Help You Get a Legal Separation in NYC
Before you can divorce in New York, you must have grounds established. What this means is that there needs to be a reason for every divorce and NYC does NOT honor no fault divorces. Because of this, you and your spouse cannot divorce simply because you choose to part ways or because you have grown tired of each other. Some other states do recognize no-fault divorces, but New York is not one of them.
If you and your spouse either do not have grounds established for divorce or you want to take early steps towards divorce, legal separation may be the right choice for you. A legal separation will allow you and your spouse to live separately for a period of a year. Once this period of a year has been met an established, you can continue on to file for a divorce, if needed.

You may have some questions about whether or not a legal separation is the right step for you. Many couples wonder this and they enjoy creating a legal separation because it is the first step to a divorce and the best approach if you:
- Want to live apart from your spouse for a year’s term
- Do not feel comfortable choosing any of the grounds available to end your marriage
- Have religious or personal beliefs that do not allow you to seek out a divorce
- Want to build the framework for a divorce
One of the most important things that you need to keep in mind is that in a legal separation, both of the parties must agree. In fact, before the paperwork can be filed, there must be a signed agreement. In legal separations, no one can be forced to sign the agreement and the agreement cannot be one-sided.
If you and your spouse are unable to come to an agreement about a legal separation, the next step may be a contested divorce, especially if you two cannot come to an agreement about the divorce or any property and assets in the divorce.
