I so thank you for your thorough and well presented answer.

I so thank you for your thorough and well presented answer. I had a follow up question. We did not file the separation agreement nor was it notarized. It seems the parameters of your answer still holds true. I wanted to just add these facts just to see if it changed any part of your thinking.

My wife moved out in October. We informally drafted a separation agreement wherein I let her take 20,000.00 of a 26,000 tax refund. That amount was to represent her interest in the family home which currently has apx. $40,000.00 equity. She bought a home in her parents name and moved a man in with her within three weeks of moving out. Now, almost a year later she has hired an attorney. Can I counter sue her parents for the equity money angie took if the judge sets it aside

I have a signed separation agreement from VA (where my wife

Sir/Ma'amI have a signed separation agreement from VA (where my wife lives; I live in ND). She signed it on 19 Mar 2016. It states that not before 11 Mar 2017, we can file for a divorce decree. Does this mean that it has to be filed in VA or I can file wherever I am? Also, is there anyway she can decline to sign the final divorce papers, forcing us to stay married?This is the section I'm referring to:4. SUBSEQUENT DIVORCE: Husband and Wife agree that upon entry of a divorce, or at any other time either party requests an appropriate order or decree, which in no event shall be prior to March 11, 2017, Husband and Wife shall petition the Court, jointly and/or individually, subsequent to March 11, 2017, to affirm, ratify and incorporate, but not merge, the provisions of this Agreement into such order or decree. Husband and Wife further agree that the validity of this Agreement does not depend upon a Court finding that it is fair and equitable, and Husband and Wife acknowledge and agree that any action for divorce between them shall be subject to and governed by the terms of this Agreement, and that each shall be bound hereby in any event. Husband and Wife further agree that the incorporation of this Agreement into an order or decree shall not be a substitute for the contractual obligations here under and that the terms and provisions of this Agreement shall be effective and independent of such order or decree and shall not be merged therein.

Divorce - I have been a non-working wife for the whole 18

Divorce - I have been a non-working wife for the whole 18 years of marriage - husband filed for divorce to stop me from moving out of State with two teen boys & prevented me fromAccepting a job.After 1 1/2 years of fighting for divorce, I succumbed to living together again yet in separate bedrooms in order to give my boys and self financial & emotional stability. We are now about to close on a new house - husband refusing to put house in my name, he has taken me off all joint credit cards and banking....so, he just gives me money as I need it. I am not comfortable with this situation.I am wondering should I get Legally Separated (live in Georgia) or should I have a Post Nup drawn up, any other advice??
