Good afternoon Jennifer,
I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
Where you slept unfortunately has nothing to do with qualifying for a divorce under SC law. Under SC law, you can either seek an immediate divorce if you can show adultery, habitual drunkenness or narcotics abuse by your husband. Or you may file a fault divorce petition after he has abandoned you for at least 12 months.
Finally, there is a no-fault divorce that you may apply for so long as the two of you have been living apart for at least 12 months. So if you are looking to a no-fault divorce, you will have to wait 12 months after he moved out to be able to file your petition for divorce.
If you relocate to another state, such as GA, you can file for divorce based on the marriage being irretrievably broken and so long as you have been a resident of the state for at least 6 months you can then file immediately.
The quickest place to get a divorce is Nevada and you can seek a no fault divorce after being a resident of the state for just 6 weeks. But in SC, you must be separated 12 months before you can file for a no-fault divorce.
I understand that you may be disappointed by the Answer you received, as it was not particularly favorable to your situation. Had I been able to provide an Answer which might have given you a successful legal outcome, it would have been my pleasure to do so.
If you have additional questions, you may of course reply back to me and I will be happy to continue to assist you further until your questions have been answered to your satisfaction.
Would you please take a moment to positively rate my service to you based on the understanding of the law I provided by clicking on the rating stars---three stars or more. It is that easy. That is the way I am compensated for having helped you.
Thank you in advance. I wish you the best in your future,
