Problems with dating a separated man

I know a lot of the talk on this blog is about uncontested divorces and I talk about how you have to be separated for more than one year before you can file for divorce. If you are filing for a no-fault, uncontested divorce, I’m sorry but you have to wait the full year out before you can file for divorce.There is some proposed legislation floating around in Columbia that would allow a no fault divorce to occur after 180 days; however, that is not the law at this time.

flows forth from the superabundance of merits of Christ (alone), rests on His mediation (to the Father), depends entirely on it, and draws all its power from it. Marriage sometimes becomes a person’s entire identity or their security.

Before relying on any material from this site, you should consult a competent attorney to discuss the specifics of your case.

In the answers to the Common Questions, unless specifically addressing this issue,we assume that there has been both a civil divorce and a Catholic "annulment" (properly called a Decree of Nullity).

If you are filing based on a fault-based ground of adultery, physical abuse, and habitual drunkenness you do not have to be separated for more than one year.

You don’t even need to be separated at all (though it is a good idea in most cases).
