Occasionally, clients seek our assistance to "file for legal separation." However, in the state of New Jersey, couples do not have this option. Rather, you can only be considered "legally separated" if a Complaint for Divorce has been filed.
Having said that, we understand that some people wish to separate from their spouse but are not yet emotionally, financially, logistically, or psychologically ready to file for divorce. There are other ways we can help you achieve your goals of separating and/or living by the terms of a comprehensive separation agreement without having to first file a Complaint for Divorce. Our attorneys can discuss with you the variety of options available, as well as the limitations and potential ramifications, based on the specific facts of your case and the needs of your family.
Our attorneys are here to help guide you through the process to ensure you are protected. For assistance with your matter, we invite you to contact Family Focused Legal Solutions online or schedule an initial consultation by calling us at 973-993-9960. Our firm serves the greater part of North and Central Jersey including but not limited to Morris County, Union County, Passaic County, Somerset County, Bergen County, and Sussex County.
