ANNULMENT, SEPARATION, & DIVORCE

Question #26:
What is the difference of divorce & a legal separation?
Answer:
In the State of the New York both divorce and legal separation require grounds. Irreconcilable differences are not sufficient to obtain either a divorce or separation. The difference is in the result. Once the judgment of divorce is executed by the judge, the parties are free to remarry, whereas, a legal separation allows the parties to live separately, to divide their assets, and cover their common liabilities, and spell out any child or spousal support requirements, but the parties remain married and are not free to live with or marry any other individual.

If you are contemplating divorce or separation, and live in the New York City metropolitan area, please call me at 212-370-1660 to discuss the matter at greater length.
