Separation

Help With Legal Separation in White Plains and Westchester County

Some couples may consider a legal separation rather than a divorce. Personal, religious, or financial reasons may cause a couple to believe that legal separation is the correct route. An experienced attorney at the White Plains firm of Carton & Rosoff PC can assist you in creating a legally binding separation agreement that meets your needs.

A separation agreement is an enforceable contract. Your legal separation can cover such issues as:

  • Dividing assets, property, and debts
  • Spousal maintenance
  • Child support
  • Child custody and visitation

An attorney can also bring a court action for a formal decree of legal separation. If you are considering a White Plains separation or divorce, an attorney at our firm can guide you in making the correct decision for you.

Benefits of a Legal Separation

There is no doubt that a divorce changes lives dramatically. A legal separation may be preferable in some situations. Benefits of a legal separation may include:

    • The parties may continue to file joint income taxes.
    • Health insurance benefits are maintained if you are separated rather than divorced.
