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, there are many other ways for couples to achieve their 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.

We invite you to contact our firm to schedule an initial consultation at 973-993-9960. You can also reach us online. All communications remain confidential.
