You mention that you drew up the Separation papers. It is important that the Separation Agreement be reviewed by a competent attorney to make sure that it satisfies all of the legal requirements and that you have covered all of the significant areas necessary in order to get a legal separation in New York. Separation and Divorce are issues that are too important to leave to self-help .
If you are living in the New York City metropolitan area, please call me at 212-370-1660 to arrange for a meeting to review these documents and to discuss filing the papers.
