Filing for separation/divorce


#1

Dear dixie3829:

Greetings. No, there is no need to file any papers to signify the beginning of the required one year waiting period. If you can show that you were living separate and apart that is enough. Best of luck.

If my divorce will be uncontested, is it necessary to file separation papers to signify the beginning of the required one year waiting period?

Many thanks for your help!
