A divorce based on living separate can mean a multitude of things, but ultimately it means that there is no reasonable hope that the marriage can continue.
The court may approve or reject a marital settlement agreement of the spouses.
The papers for dissolution of marriage must also be filed in a county where either of the spouses resides, or in the county where both parties last lived as husband and wife.
The only thing that is necessary to prove is that there has been a breakdown in the marital relationship to the extent that the objects and goals of marriage have been destroyed and that no reasonable possibility remains that the marriage can be saved.
Standard financial disclosure forms are required to be filed.
The four additional grounds that a party may seek a divorce upon which are based on assignment of fault are: adultery; habitual use of drugs or alcohol; physical cruelty; and willful desertion for 1 year.
State statutes now provide for the “equitable” distribution of the marital property of the marriage at the time of the final divorce between the parties.
“Marital Property” is defined as all jointly owned property and all other property, other than separate property, acquired by either or both of the parties during the marriage and up to the time of the final separation of the parties.
