We Can Help You with Legal Separation in NY
When it comes to divorce under New York law, there must be grounds for the divorce and they must be established in EVERY single case. Unfortunately, this can be difficult in some situations for those couples who simply do not get along or want to move on due to their differences. New York does NOT recognize irreconcilable differences or the inability to communicate with each other as grounds for a divorce. Some other states do offer “no fault” divorces, but not New York.
Legal separation may be the right choice for you, especially if you cannot establish grounds for your divorce. This separation will allow you to live your life the way you need to without feeling stuck or suffocated. If you would like to discuss your options, contact Divorce Lawyer NY today for a FREE consultation.

Our experienced divorce lawyer will be able to draft and file separation agreements for you and your spouse in Queens or Staten Island. We will discuss the terms and circumstances for each of the agreements to make sure that they meet your needs.
You may be wondering if a legal separation is the right choice for you or not. Many couples enjoy what legal separation has to offer them and this may be an ideal approach for you if:
- You do not feel comfortable basing your divorce on the grounds that are available
- You want to live separately from your spouse for a term of one year
- You want the basic framework of a divorce to be filed and in place to show effort
- You have beliefs, religious or not, that prevents you from divorcing your spouse
One of the most important factors in a legal separation is that BOTH parties AGREE. In fact, it is necessary for both parties to agree before the paperwork can be filed. This type of agreement is not one-sided and cannot be forced either, so bear this in mind.
If you and your spouse cannot come to an agreement on the legal separation, you may want to consider a contested divorce in this situation. Contested divorces are designed for couples who want a divorce, but cannot come to an agreement about the divorce or items related to the divorce.
