No, under reforms enacted by the state in 2010, there is no longer any need for a separation agreement in order to get divorced in Brooklyn.
Under the old laws, separation agreements were often helpful in overcoming the huge hurdles that couples faced in ending their marriages.
If you and your spouse can reach fair terms on your own, you may never even need to appear in a court room.
For those with significant assets or child custody and support issues to resolve, some level of negotiation may be necessary to ensure both parties’ rights and interests are protected.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help you have the easiest possible divorce in Brooklyn.
