Dear nessajason:

Greetings. If the date his wife went to prison was the date he decided to become separate, then he can file for divorce one year and one day from the date she went into prison in August 2003. Best of luck.

my friend got married in may 2003 and his wife went to prison in august 2003, someone told him he could go ahead and get the divorce,even though it hasn’t be a one year, they said when she went to prison that was grounds for a divorce. need to know if this information is correct.
