Answers to Common Questions

Q: What is legal separation?

There is no "legal separation" in New Jersey. In order for you legally to establish that the marriage is no longer viable, you must file a complaint for divorce and begin the divorce process. Sometimes spouses will move out and begin residing separately. In New Jersey, this is not a recognizable "end of the marriage" date. Separation may have serious implications on issues of custody, parenting time, alimony/spousal support and equitable division of assets. The professionals at Maleski Eisenhut & Zielinski, LLC can discuss this in more detail and offer viable options if you are seeking to reside apart from your spouse.
