Being legally seperated


#1

If you want to be separated then you can leave and establish an address elsewhere; that is the definition of separation. Or, if this is your house in your name alone, acquired before the marriage, then consult an attorney–but I believe that you can divorce him from bed and board (look up more about that on this site).

Dear PENNYBLUE:

Greetings. You become legally separated when you move out or he moves out. If you want to get him out, you can file a claim for divorce from bed and board, stop cooking for him, etc. You may also move out, and then file eviction papers on him. Thank you.

HOW DO I BECOME LEGALLY SEPERATED FROM MY HUSBAND WHEN HE DOESNT WANT TO BE. I HAVE BEEN MARRIED FOR 4 MONTHS AND I WANT OUT NOW. I KNOW THAT THIS IS NOT GOING TO WORK AND I DO NOT WANT TO SPEND ANY MORE TIME IN THIS MARRIAGE. I HAVE EXPRESSED THIS TO MY HUSBAND AND I HAVE ASKED HIM TO LEAVE MY HOUSE AND HE WILL NOT. WE HAVE NOT SLEPT TOGETHER IN THE SAME BED FOR THE LAST TWO MONTHS. WE DO NOTHING TOGETHER AND WE HAVE NOTHING TOGETHER. THERE ARE NO CHILDREN. HE MOVED INTO MY HOUSE SO I DO I GET HIM OUT LEGALLY. I DONT WANT ANYTHING FROM HIM AT ALL. I JUST WANT HIM OUT OF MY HOUSE AND MY LIFE. I EVEN TOLD HIM THE TRUTH ABOUT THE MARRIAGE THAT IS WAS NEVER OUT OF LOVE. I ONLY MARRIED HIM BECAUSE I WAS HURT AND THOUGHT I COULD LOVE HIM ONE DAY. I DONT WANT THIS MARRIAGE TO TAKE UP ANY MORE OF MY LIVE AND TIME. I JUST WANT OUT.
