Dear algipac:

Greetings. No, the court will not look at the separation period since you reconciled. I would immediately move for separation. Thank you.

I have a question but before let me explain my situation. In the last 3 years my wife has wanted to live on her own. My wife and I have been married 18 years. We got married outside of the USA.
My wife has a history of depression and sometime does not think straight. I tried everything I could to keep her at home but a year ago she decided to leave for good. I had to accept the inevitable but asked her to find a job first which she did. I bought a town home for her nearby so the kids could go in either places when they wanted and have been paying the mortgage every month since. After 4 months of living separately I received a letter from a law office informing me that she wanted to resolve the marital separation in an amicable manner which I responded positively. Very soon after that she left her job and found herself with no resource. She was not fired, she left on her own. I helped as much as I could for a couple of months by giving her money for her to make ends meet until she found another job. Unfortunately she lost this other job after only 2 months. When I saw her hitting rock bottom I proposed her to come back with me but I realize now that this was a big mistake. She now makes my life miserable by blaming me for everything, which happened to her. I am thinking about filling for divorce myself as I am fed up with this situation. Too much is too much.
My questions are: Is the fact that she left initially something that can be taken into account? Will the 8 months we lived separately be considered even if she has been back with me for the last 6 weeks?
Many thanks for any information you will be able to give me
