WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO GET A DIVORCE - JURISDICTION, GROUNDS

Question #75:


I have been separated from my husband since 11/2001 and i am in the process of filing a divorce representing myself and i wanted to know whether it is legal to file for a divorce without a legal separation. I would really appreciate it you can help me in any way. Thank you for your time.


Answer:



Answer:


The divorce process it is too complex and important to leave it to yourself to do. I strongly suggest that you engage an attorney-mediator experienced in divorce and matrimonial matters who can assist you. No legal separation is necessary if you have other acceptable grounds upon which you are suing for divorce. You can see a discussion on the other grounds that are acceptable on my web site under "grounds and jurisdiction"; please take a look at the questions and answers there.
