Divorce and martial debt


#1

Dear FATHERDORIGHT:

Greetings. First, I too have to have a life away from the computer sometimes…so patience is a virtue. From today forward, whenever anyone complains about me being slow, I may just delay even longer on answering their questions!

Okay, if you have been separated for one year and one day, she cannot delay the divorce unless she disagrees with the divorce.

As far as the equitable distribution - that can go along for a long time depending on who is setting up hearings and pushing the matter forward (as well as the court’s calendar). Thank you.
