Well, I’m currently separated from my wife. I prefer the word estranged. (OK OK she moved out.)
She tells me that we should get legally separated.
What is the difference between legally separated and divorced?
She also tells me that in the state of NY we have to be legally separated for one year before we can divorce. She claims a friend of her father, who is a lawyer, told her this. I haven’t looked into this as I don’t particularly want either separation or divorce nor do I have funds enough to even say the word lawyer aloud.
Is it true we need a legal separation first?
Thank you for your responses
