Seperation and New Business


Dear dutchcreek:

Greetings. Isolates incidents of sex do not equal reconciliation. Moving back in and holding yourself out as husband and wife does though. If you cannot agree to an agreement, then file for divorce on June 22, 2006. Thank you.

Me and my stbx seperated 6/21/05. We have a few time since then “hooked up”, but haven’t since January. I started a business in Feb, which isnt making a lot of money yet, but i am sure she is going to try to get her hands on anything she can. My question is… does she have any right to the business? We havent filed a seperation agreement, so i am sure she is going to contest the date, but I do have people that will state we have lived apart since that date. She is a known compulsive liar, and is going to do anything to put things in her favor. Is it too late to file an agreement? And what if she will not sign one?
