Yes, a Separation Agreement can be converted to a Judgment of Divorce in Queens after it has been in effect for one year.
Because the Separation Agreement addresses the same issues that your divorce settlement would, they can sometimes be accepted as an entire divorce settlement.
In other cases, there may be technical issues to be resolved.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino understand that when a couple has taken its time to make a decision to divorce, they may not want to renegotiate everything a year later.
We make sure we have a clear understanding of our client’s goals before we begin negotiation with the other side.
