Legal Separation in New Jersey

Trusted Divorce Attorney in Monmouth County

Are you considering filing for divorce? You should speak to a knowledgeable Monmouth County divorce attorney before making any firm decisions. If you have concerns about divorce, you may benefit from a legal separation in which you remain married legally but otherwise live apart.

Most attorneys will advise that in general, you should not separate unless there is some written agreement relative to children and support arrangements, at least on an interim basis. If you are planning on separating, you should obtain legal advice before taking that step.

August Landi has more than 50 years of experience in assisting separating parties develop agreements that protect their interests. He fully understands the ins and outs of divorce and family law in New Jersey and consistently provides the impartial, third party advice that you need.

What is a separation agreement?

A separation agreement signed by both parties, especially with legal advice, can be filed with the court so as to become an order of the court, enforceable by the court to the same extent as though there were a trial.

Such an agreement needs to contain the following terms:

  • Child support payments
  • Spousal support payments
  • Medical bill payments
  • Who will pay property taxes
  • Who will pay car-related payments
  • Who will prepare tax returns
  • Maintenance of health insurance for the family

Think of the separation agreement as a Band-Aid agreement designed to stabilize the family temporarily and over the short term. Separation agreements include decisions setting payment of monthly living expenses and access to children.
