When Divorce Isn’t The Answer

Sometimes divorce may not be the most appropriate solution for a couple, so people prefer to pursue a legal separation agreement instead. The law firm of The Colwell Law Group, LLC, can help people with the process of reaching a separation agreement instead of proceeding with a divorce.

We bring more than 20 years of combined experience to every case we handle. Experience is valuable. It means that we have encountered similar issues before and we know how to help you achieve your goals.

To learn more about separation vs. divorce in New York state, schedule a consultation with an experienced New York family law attorney. Call 518-462-4242 or e-mail our family law office today.


Why Not Just Get A Divorce?

A written separation agreement can function in much the same way as a divorce. You can reach a property settlement. You can outline child custody and visitation arrangements. You can establish child support and spousal maintenance agreements.

Furthermore, you can accomplish all of these goals in a very civil manner – a manner that also typically costs less than divorce and avoids litigation.

No matter what your goals are, you can count on us to guide you down the right path. We can do that because we take the time to listen to you. We will learn about your goals and we will give you honest guidance.
