New Jersey Divorce Lawyer Discusses Separation Agreements


As an experienced New Jersey Divorce Lawyer, I think if someone asked me if they need a separation agreement, you've got to look at the facts. This whole industry and everything is so fact-specific because sometimes you don't need a separation agreement. The biggest thing I say to my clients is that you don't need to spend time, money, and energy oftentimes if you don't have to. If you're amicable with your spouse, and your spouse had a second place anyway, and he or she was paying for that, okay, who cares? Let him or her stay there. As long as there's some understanding of the money - I always say to my clients get something, even if it's an email, something that evidences what's going to happen.

For example, who's going to pay the cable? Who's going to pay the gas card? How am I going to get money to go shopping? Am I cooking for you still? Do you need a separation agreement? Generally speaking, I would say it's something that you want to have, whether in email or not. A more detailed separation agreement put together by lawyers with specifics on numbers, and custody, and parenting, fact-specific, if that's the way it is, then you may need that. If it's more amicable, keep it amicable. Don't make it any worse than it has to be.

Are you considering filing for a separation agreement? If so, contact the experienced New Jersey Divorce Lawyer Christopher Leon Garibian.
