My husband and I were married in California in May 2010. We bought a house in NY State, and currently reside there together, but are separating. He is moving back to California, and I will remain in our home in New York State. We may decide to get a divorce. Where should we file for that once we’re ready? I’ve noticed that New York State requires a separation agreement first. What legal steps should I be thinking about right now? Thank you!
If you have lived in NYS for over a year, you can file in NYS. You should start removing yourself from all joint accounts and credit cards in which you are liable. Loans etc. as well as collecting all your marital, financial documents, bank statements, brokerage statements, 401-k’s, etc.
Give me a call at 212-370-1660 to arrange for a meeting to discuss the matter in greater detail.
