Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good afternoon. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. For something like this, which is medically necessary, it should not be an issue. With that being said, if she stays in the home and sleeps in a different room and is only there for the night, it should not effect your ability to file, since the year has passed. The court would be looking for a situation where you are still together, seeing each other and there is possible sexual activity going on. In this case, you have nobody else to turn to, to care for you after the surgery, so he presence should not reset the clock, since there is no intent to have any relationship.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
