I separated from my husband on October 1, 2013. I have found an apartment for (6) months while he receives therapy; therapy that he has agreed upon based on possible reconciliation. He desperately wants me back and perhaps the separation along with weekly therapy will repair his issues and we can start a fresh new relationship. Serving him with separation papers would not be appropriate since we are working toward healing and possible reconciliation. He is behaving nicely allowing me this time apart.
Let say after (6) months I find there is no progress or I find I don’t want to go back to the marriage and seek divorce. Let say at that point I decide to serve him with a separation agreement. I know you have to be separated one year and one day to get a divorce; will the date of separation be October 1, 2013 or the date in which I serve him with separation papers.
