I’m a 23-year-old mother of 2 children, and I have been married for five years now, Going on 6 in November. My question is. What are the steps involved with filing a divorce or even a separation?
You must reach a settlement with your spouse regarding child custody, child support, spousal support, division of marital assets, etc., have these incorporated into a Separation Agreement, and then draft the Divorce documents. I strongly recommend that you consult a divorce mediator-attorney; I do not recommend that you attempt to prepare these documents yourself. They require legal expertise and an understanding of what the courts are looking for in such documents.
If you live in the NYC metropolitan area, please call me at 212-370-1660 to arrange for an appointment.
