Hello. I am an attorney with over 20 years of experience and I look forward to assisting you today. Please note: This is general information for educational purposes only and is not legal advice. No specific course of action is proposed herein, and no attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site.

In what state does your husband live?
The information that your husband has given you is probably accurate. Most states have a waiting period wherein once you are separated a specific amount of time, you can file for a no-fault divorce or uncontested divorce based on having lived separate and apart for that specific time period. Some states permit a divorce based on no fault grounds, provided you have been living separate and apart, without reconciliation for one year. So if he is telling you that there is a one year waiting period, depending on the state in which he resides, that may actually be the case. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.
Your satisfaction is my goal, and I'm happy to answer any follow-up questions you may have.
