Bed and Board

Dear need sanity:

Greetings. There is no minimum or maximum. The statute has guidelines for a case by case analysis. If it will take time to sell the house, so you may wanat to bunker down and get used to being roomies until the house sells. Good luck.

So what you’re staying is I can still file for the separation but be “roomies” at the same time??? I’m trying to fully understand.

Also, after the 1 year separation, if the house still hasnt’ sold, could I still proceed with the divorce and go about my merry way if the other party agrees to stay in the house??

Janet, no words of gratitude are enough for all you do for us!! You are truly an angel…thank you so much!!!

Dear need sanity:

Greetings again. Absolutely not - you cannot be separated and living together, but what I am saying is that you need to prepare yourself for the clock to start running for the divorce after the house is sold, which will mean that you will be married longer, if you are not willing/able to move out right now.

No way, you cannot just get a divorce and go your merry way, although you could if you deal with ALL the property issues in a separation agreement prior to the divorce date.

So, to be as clear as possible - plan not to get a divorce until one year after the date of sale of the house - since that is when you are likely to move. If you have a separation agreement negotiated for you, then you may be able to leave as soon as it is signed, regardless of whether or not the house sells. Thank you - I would like my angel wings now please. LOL [:D][:)][:D][:)]

I was able to get information on divorce of bed and board today. I’m a little confused as to how this works. I would like to be able to stay in my home and still be separated…my question is what is the maximum legnth of stay I can issue.

We both own the home together, but can’t affort to move out right now. We will have to put the house up for sale but it may take quite some time for it to sell.

Please help…I’m so confused…[:(]
