States vary on the requirement of separation prior to divorce. A lot depends on the type of divorce being sought. The bigger question is whether moving to another state can expedite a divorce. New Jersey, for example, is among a number of states that require one year's residency prior to being able to file. Alaska only requires 30 days. Washington and South Dakota have no set residency requirement, but both have waiting times, depending on the action upon which the complaint is filed. Florida has a six month residency requirement but no waiting period or separation requirement.

The state of South Carolina does not recognize legal separation before or during a divorce process. Questions should be addressed to a competent lawyer.

Nothing, but you can choose to divorce them. Separation sometimes allows you to see other people and after awhile after the separation you can choose to stay together or divorce

Yes, your divorce should be where you live at the time of your separation, or where the children reside. If you live in the US, the divorce needs to be in the US to be enforceable.

There is no length of time that a separation turns into a divorce. You are legally married until you obtain a divorce through the courts.There is no length of time that a separation turns into a divorce.

Why not at south carolina? As you are living in south carolina,it will be better for you to file divorce at carolina. The answer is no. You will have to file for your divorce in South Carolina but you have to have resided in South Carolina for at least one year.

No. If your divorce requires that you wait six months under your state law you cannot circumvent the law by moving to another state.No. If your divorce requires that you wait six months under your state law you cannot circumvent the law by moving to another state.No. If your divorce requires that you wait six months under your state law you cannot circumvent the law by moving to another state.No. If your divorce requires that you wait six months under your state law you cannot circumvent the law by moving to another state.

In some states Alienation is a grounds for divorce. It should be stated on the petition for divorce if your state requires a compelling reason to ask for divorce. If you happen to live in a no fault state, the issue of alienation is moot. In a no fault state you do not need a reason to get a divorce. In that case, your "reason" is not a consideration (legally that is). Make sure you find out if your state is no fault so that you will know how to proceed.

Legal separation is to the same thing as divorce and is not always a prerequisite to a obtaining a dissolution of marriage (i.e. divorce). Although many of the issues (such as alimony, child support, etc) that would traditionally be dealt with in a divorce were done in your legal separation, you still need to go through the divorce process, starting with filing for divorce. At no point, no matter how long you have been separated, will a legal separation turn into a divorce.

I do not believe that you can. It has to be a mandatory 1 year before you can get officially divorced in NC. Even if the divorce is uncontested.

No. There is no mandatory separation time in Colorado.

Yes, you can file for a legal separation and have it right away, but you will still be legally married until the divorce is final.

yes but if she doesnt want the divorce then you can just file for separation.

It's not the separation - it's the official divorce papers that allow you to marry again. You have to divorce if you want to remarry.

That matter should be addressed in the separation agreement that was incorporated into the divorce decree. You should review the decree and consult with the attorney who represented you in the divorce.That matter should be addressed in the separation agreement that was incorporated into the divorce decree.
