If you and your spouse are planning to or already have separated in Long Island or Manhattan, it is in your best interests to draft a separation agreement which can be enforced by the courts. If you need such an agreement to be created which will be legally binding, we recommend that you consult with a Suffolk County separation agreement attorney at our firm at your earliest convenience.

At Campagna Johnson, P.C., we have an abundance of experience in drawing up and filing separation agreements which may then be used later in divorce judgments. Our lawyers have drafted and filed such agreements for clients in all types of situations, from simple separations without children involving little or no marital property to clients with complex financial, business, and child custody and visitation issues.

What Is A Separation Agreement?

A separation agreement consists of a detailed written contract between spouses which delineates how such issues as child custody, visitation rights, spousal support, division of marital property, and all other marital matters will be handled and arranged. When the agreement is written properly and all legal formalities are followed, it becomes a binding agreement which can be legally enforced should one of the spouses fail to comply with its terms. It can also be included in any divorce decree. At the end of one year after the separation agreement is filed, a no-fault divorce can be obtained by either spouse.

If you need help negotiating a separation agreement with your spouse, we can assist you with mediation services. Because of our firm's vast experience in handling family law matters whether through mediation or trial litigation, we have the knowledge, skills, and resources to ensure that your separation agreement and all issues relating to it are thoroughly resolved.
