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.

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.
