Unless rules have changed, you have to file for divorce, you cannot just stay separated for any length of time and automatically become divorced.

No. Legally separated does not mean divorced. He must actually be divorced before he is free to marry, unless he is in a place that allows plural marriages.

Regardless of how long you've been separated, you're not divorced until you obtain a divorce from the court (you have to file a petition for divorce)

Separated? -- NO. Divorced? -- Depends. Depends if it's a 'scriptural' divorce or not. And then the 'scriptural' divorce needs to be legally handled; before any other dating or courtship can resume .

Yes, you can date while you're legally separated or mutually separated and it can not really be held against you. but check with a your lawyer first. However, in the military you must be legally divorced before you can have any sexual relation with anyone or you can be charged for adultery. don't believe me search in about.com.

The state of New Jersey is a no-fault divorce state. While there is no specific separation period required for a divorce in this state you must still go through with a legal divorce proceeding before a divorce is official.

You are NEVER going to be divorced unless you file. The only way you will ever be legally divorced is to get a legal divorce. There is no other way.

It depends on which country you're getting a divorce in. If the country is Australia then you must be legally separated from your partner for a minimum of 12 months before you can be eligible for divorce. Otherwise, please change the question to specify a country.

As long as they don't use marital property to acquire the separate property. _________ before you venture into more debt, the best thing to do is go ahead and finalize the divorce. When you are legally separated, lenders may question your income and assets because separated is not divorced. Your credit may show that you are overextended because it will show you as married. Do you have a marital home that has to be liquidated for settlement purposes? That is money that could help you buy down your interest, etc. Lot of things to consider when you are not yet divorced. Seek financial counseling first and discuss starting the divorce process before you jump into anything. You are not yet totally free!
