0ne year (and one day?)

Is the date you are allowed to follow one year or one year and one day after the date of separation? I’ve seen it written as both.

So for example, if we separated on the 3rd of May last year, could I file on the 3rd or 4th of May this year?

It’s one year and one day so May 4. Mine is November 18 (separated November 17) so I’m counting the days.

Yes, you would be eligible to file on May 4.
