Separtion Agreement

In order to be separated in North Carolina you must live separate and apart continuously. If she came home in April and stayed with you, then that would stop the separation period and it would begin again from the date she left after the April visit.

My wife is stationed at Ft. Bragg and recently she talked to me and said that she had filed the paperwork for a separation agreement over in Iraq. She told me that it is back dated to January when she first left, but she came home in April for 2 weeks. The attorney that she talked to over in Iraq said to her that the time she is over there will apply to the time apart. I am confused I thought that once you come back home to the house the agreement would not be valid and the time would have to start over again. I have not received in paperwork as of yet. And I just want to know what the guidelines are in a situation like this when a person is deployed. Also, I want to know what the price is for filing a separation agreement.
