One year and one day

Dear Georgeofjungle,

If April 18, 2003 was your date of separation, filing on April 19, 2004 was ok.

Good luck,

The response posted above is based upon the limited factual information made available and is not intended as a full and complete response to the question. The only reliable manner to obtain complete and adequate legal advice is to consult with an attorney, fully explain your situation, and allow the attorney sufficient opportunity to research the applicable law and facts required to render an accurate opinion. The basic information provided above is intended as a public service but a full discussion with an attorney should be undertaken before taking any action.

I have a question about the law that you must wait one year and one day until you can file for divorce. My wife and I separated on April 18, 2003. I filed the papers on April 19, 2004. Was this the correct day that I could file? I’m starting to doubt myself. Thank you.
