Facilitating Amicable Divorce and Separation
When a married couple has mutually agreed on a divorce or separation, the priority is generally to amicably resolve any outstanding issues and get a legal resolution quickly and cost-effectively.
At Brooke, Brady & Schopfer, LLP, our lawyers understand these motivations and have helped many Dutchess County clients by drafting uncontested divorce settlements and marital separation agreements.
We have more than 30 years of experience with uncontested and contested divorce litigation. Our attorneys understand that divorce is more than a piece of paper. The decisions you make now will affect you, your spouse and your children for many years.

Prepared for Various Levels of Complexity
Many couples that have been married for a short period of time and that do not have children or significant assets can, with mutual agreement, obtain a divorce quickly and easily.
Other couples that have agreed to divorce but have outstanding issues to resolve regarding children, property or spousal support can often achieve a cost-effective settlement to a contested divorce with our help, even in a high net worth divorce situation.
While our Poughkeepsie divorce attorneys can only formally represent one spouse, the other spouse can participate in the process without legal representation if he or she agrees to do so.
The same general factors are involved in drafting a marital separation agreement. Whether you seek help with an uncontested divorce or separation, don’t hesitate to contact us.
The Importance of Formal Separation Agreements
If you would like to live apart from your spouse but are not ready to initiate a divorce, you should consider filing a formal marital separation agreement. With a marital separation agreement, you can live apart as if unmarried, without formally dissolving the marriage. After a year of separation, either party may obtain a divorce, or if you reconcile, you can mutually end the formal separation.
