Legal seperation


You file for divorce. You wait for a court date, then once it’s heard, you wait another sixty days or so for your paperwork to be filed.


Nothing happens unless you file an action seeking an absolute divorce and/or actions for child custody, support, alimony and equitable distribution. There are forms on this site for absolute divorce.

Good luck.
