Divorce from bed and board


Dear drwilsontwo:

Greetings. No, technically your date of separation is the first day that either of you leave the marital residence. The Divorce from Bed and Board is a request for a judge to create a date of separation for you and your spouse. Best of luck.

Thanks for all of your help thus far. This forum is great.

One quick question… I know separation occurs after one person leaves the residence. But I filed for Divorce from Bed and Board in August and was told by my attorney that separation actually started then. Is this true?
