You can only be legally divorced if you get a legal divorce. It doesn't matter how long you have been separated. Separation only means you are no longer living together. Separation is not divorce. You are still married. What's keeping you from getting a legal divorce? I think you already know you are still legally married. Who is it you are trying to fool...or is it that still being married keeps you from being able to make the kind of commitment that the person you are now with probably wants. Nice safety net for you.. but not very mature. Get a divorce and get on with it.
It is not as simple as that. Legal separation and divorce are two very different concepts and you could be separated for years and the other spouse would still be able to contest the divorce. It is a right that they have in the divorce proceeding ad the legal status leading up to the divorce will hold no bearing on their ability to do so. It should be noted, however that if you want a divorce, you will get a divorce whether it is contested or uncontested. Courts simply will not keep you in a legal relationship you no longer wish to be a part of.
Absolutely not. You must obtain a legal divorce. Until you do you are legally married and will inherit each other's property.
