Take the First Step to Protect Your Future with Spodek Law Group

Not every marriage is a bed of roses. When things get tough, some couples decide to separate as the best course of action. If you’re in Queens, it might be worth considering legal separation to ensure that both parties uphold their end of the bargain. At Spodek Law Group, we understand that separation is a personal decision, but it’s recommended you consult with a separation attorney to help keep things above the law.

Legal Separation: What Is It?

Legal separation is more than just leaving your spouse without getting a divorce. It’s a step towards a potential reconciliation or the beginning of the divorce process. There are typically two types of couples who go through a legal separation.

The first couple is looking to save their marriage, but the daily grind has caused too much conflict. Living apart for a while might bring them closer together by reminding them of the value of their relationship. The second couple is not looking to fix their relationship. They want to go through the process of ending their marriage to move on with their lives.

The Benefits of Legal Separation

Legal separation has legal consequences that protect your future. For instance, if you’re a stay-at-home mom, and your working husband decides to move out, going through this process legally means he’s still required to pay the mortgage and the household expenses for you and your children. Without legal separation, it’s all but impossible to make him keep his promises if he decides it’s no longer worth his time.

If you are looking for a lawyer that listens, is aggressive where needed, and holds his word above all else, Todd is the best pick. I had hired multiple attorneys prior to hiring the Spodek Group for a white collar case. The first thing that stood out to me was the cost, as anyone going through the process and dealing with the system, money was tight at that time - especially after hiring and firing multiple lawyers. The cost was not as high as others which was definitely a plus. Todd's intake process was also unlike other attorneys. He took the time to actually listen. He cared. He was trying to put himself in my shoes while I was explaining the situation to him and he really took the time to understand the whole situation. Other lawyers will give you 15 mins and send you a retainer agreement. Not Todd, I think he spent almost two hours with me as I was explaining everything.Not only was he great during the onboarding process, he was supportive and very informative through the entire plea process and eventually sentencing. After hiring him, I asked if I should hire a prison consultant, he told me to save my money as he would do everything they would. He was right and held up to his word. Later on I would hear from others that went with the prison consultants that they were a waste of money - I am glad I listened to Todd!When it came time for sentencing, two days prior to sentencing, the prosecutor tried increasing my proposed prison time by almost double - apparently a normal move. Todd and his team worked with me non-stop through the weekend prior to sentencing to ensure that I was not given additional prison time. Again, he took the time to listen and came up with a strategy to explain the case with great detail.Unfortunately, I did plead guilty as that was my best option. Todd and his whole team wrote up nearly 300 pages of a summary of what happened and why I should not be given prison time. If I breakdown the amount I spent with Todd versus the amount of work that I saw being done, I am shocked I was not charged four times as much. The other benefit was, a lot of criminal defense lawyers were just a single attorney with a paralegal or two. Todd had a team of people that I dealt with (5-7 people that I interacted with), but he was ALWAYS accessible. It would never take him more than an hour to reply unless he was in court.I was sentenced to prison and I was emotionally distraught. Todd and his team did whatever they could even after sentencing to make sure I was alright. He personally stayed in touch with my family to ensure I was doing alright and offered support to them. Most lawyers would consider the job complete at sentencing, not Todd.After prison, Todd still spent time with me to make sure I was on the right track and avoiding any potential risks in the future. He has also been giving advice on how to navigate probation etc and has not been looking at the clock for billing.Although I wish I had never been arrested in the first place, I am glad I had Todd and his team in my corner. Without them I likely would have had to spend a lot more time in prison than I did.Thank you, Todd, and the entire Spodek Law team, for helping turn what was a nightmare into a manageable situation!

I don’t know where to start, I can write a novel about this firm, but one thing I will say is that having my best interest was their main priority since the beginning of my case which was back in Winter 2019. Miss Claire Banks, one of the best Attorneys in the firm represented me very well and was very professional, respectful, and truthful. Not once did she leave me in the dark, in fact she presented all options and routes that could possibly be considered for my case and she reinsured me that no matter what I decided to do, her and the team will have my back and that’s exactly what happened. Not only will I be liberated from this case, also, I will enjoy my freedom and continue to be a mother to my first born son and will have no restrictions with accomplishing my goals in life. Now that’s what I call victory!! I thank the Lord, My mother, Claire, and the Spodek team for standing by me and fighting with me. Words can’t describe how grateful I am to have the opportunity to work with this team. I’m very satisfied, very pleased with their performance, their hard work, and their diligence.Thank you team!

I recently had Spodek Law Group represent me for a legal matter in NYC and I am thoroughly impressed with their services.Alex Zhik secured the best possible outcome for my case.It was a seamless journey from the initial consultation to the resolution of my legal matter. From the moment I spoke to Todd about my case, his enthusiasm to help was evident, setting a positive tone for the entire experience. The efficiency and professionalism displayed by the team is commendable.A particularly noteworthy aspect of their service is their user-friendly portal to upload your documents/evidence. This not only simplified the process, but showcases their commitment to streamline the client experience.Lastly, in an industry where legal fees can often be a concern, I found their pricing to be very reasonable, making needing legal assistance feel accessible and stress-free.I am grateful for their support and wouldn't hesitate to turn to them again in the future.

At Spodek Law Group, our Queens separation attorney helps you by drafting legal documents that state what you and your spouse are responsible for in the event of a separation. This includes martial assets, debts, expenses, and child care, among other things. Your future depends on this legal document if your marriage is coming to an end.

Do You Need a Separation Attorney?

You don’t need to go through the legal channels if you are separated. However, it’s essential to consult with an attorney who works with those undergoing a trial separation on a legal basis. The separation attorney will help you draft a legal document that ensures you’re protected in the event of a separation. Without this legal document, your spouse might decide to stop with his side of the deal, leaving you without the financial help you need to run your household or care for your kids.

Furthermore, your separation agreement can be made void if you live together again, and you’re protected no matter what you decide. Hiring an attorney to handle your legal separation documentation is wise when your marriage is not on solid ground. Protection is always wise, and Todd Spodek and the team at Spodek Law Group are here to help you every step of the way.

Is Legal Separation the Answer to Your Unhappy Marriage?

Are you feeling unhappy and considering leaving your spouse? If so, you’re not alone. Many people find themselves in this situation and wonder what their options are. In Queens, some couples choose legal separation to help ensure both parties are held accountable. It’s a deeply personal decision, but with the help of a Queens separation attorney, you can take the necessary legal steps to protect your future.

What is Legal Separation?

Legal separation is the act of leaving your spouse without getting a divorce. It’s a way for couples to see if they can work through their issues while living in separate homes. Two types of couples often go through legal separation. The first type wants to save their marriage but find it challenging to live together. The hope is that living apart for a while will bring them closer together. The second type of couple is looking to end their marriage due to being tired of each other.

If you’re a stay-at-home parent, going through legal separation means your working spouse is still required to pay the mortgage, household expenses, and provide for your children. Without legal separation, your spouse might not keep their promises, leaving you without financial support.

Do You Need to Go Through the Legal Channels?

You don’t need to, but it’s highly recommended that you consult with a separation attorney. A separation attorney can help you draft legal documents that state what you and your spouse are responsible for during the separation. This legal document covers everything from martial assets to child care, ensuring you and your children are financially protected.

If you live together again, your separation agreement can be made void, and you’re protected no matter what you decide. Protecting yourself and your children is always wise, and a separation attorney can provide the necessary legal guidance and support to help you navigate this challenging time.

Don’t let marital problems get the best of you. Reach out to Spodek Law Group and attorney Todd Spodek to help you through this difficult time. Your future depends on taking the necessary legal steps to protect yourself and your family.
