Need to file a Divorce from Bed andBoard claim


#1

I found the form online but can no longer locate it.
It looks as though this can be done independently. This is the top priority as the spouse to whom I’ve only been married since October has refused to leave my home. She does not pay the mortgage and is not on the deed.
She has continually demeaned me, encouraged me to drink alcohol and she has used drugs in our home, despite her own daughter being there at the same time.

It is not my intention to cause harm or involve DSS, etc. however, I want her to leave my home so our year of separation can begin ASAP. I am possibly to be deployed with the Army National Guard in the next few months and I need this process begun.

Many thanks for any and all info.
