The Law Offices of Leo Mikityanskiy represents clients in preparing, negotiating, and signing matrimonial settlement agreements in Brooklyn, NY.  When a married couple wants to legally separate, they should negotiate and sign a separation and settlement agreement that should be filed in the Office of the Clerk in the New York Supreme Court, in the county where the parties reside.  A separation and settlement agreement defines the rights and responsibilities of the parties from the time of legal separation.  Such an agreement should address where the parties live, with whom the parties’ children reside, and who is responsible for marital debts.  The agreement should also spell out who receives what property upon separation and whether either of the spouses pays spousal support or child support to the other, in what amounts, and for what period of time.  The separation and settlement agreement can, and should, be incorporated into a judgment of Divorce if the parties later decide to divorce.

Even if the spouses decide to separate amicably, it does not always follow that they will agree on the terms of the separation and settlement agreement.  That is why it is essential that the parties be represented by competent matrimonial attorneys who understand the spouses’ rights and responsibilities and can explain the complex legal framework to the spouses.  It may be difficult to divide or separate some of the marital property, and some tradeoffs may be necessary instead.  Part of the difficulty in property division is in the closely-owned Businesses by one or both spouses.  Valuation of such businesses may significantly affect the property division plan between the spouses, and skilled lawyers have certain knowledge basis and resources available to them to assist in the process.
