Thank you for your reply, I looked on the internet and was aware of all of the six grounds. In order for a separation, I would need him to leave my home, and how do I go about this if he refuses to leave. And if it does not fall under the 6 grounds.
Sorry to bother again, I want to make sure I understand this. What do you have to do in order to get divorce from bed and board? Do I have to hire an attorney or can I get the paperwork and do myself, what type of paperwork do I need to get this done and what are the actually steps to do this. Would leaving my home not be abandonment and I be at fault....I am so sorry that I am confused.
I am still trying to process all of this, so you are saying I cannot tell my husband that he has to leave my home, although he moved into a home fully furnished, all bills paid. And I cannot evict him unless I am afraid for my safety and then I could get a restraining order...is this correct?
We have no property to divide or children, it would be a simple divorce, do you still have to have separation papers in order to get a divorce. I know you must be separated for a year, but do the papers have to be filed with the courts?
Thank you for your advice, I just needed to know my options and you satisfied those.
Have a good day!
