As an experienced New York Divorce Lawyer, clients often ask when their separation agreement is legally binding.
- A separation agreement does not become legally binding merely by filing.
- Rather, it becomes legally binding when both parties have affixed notarized signatures.
- A separation agreement must carry the notarized signatures of both parties and filed with the county clerk’s office.
- As soon as both of your notarized signatures are on that document, you are legally separated.
