In Louisiana, parties MUST live separate and apart for 180 days before they can file for divorce. So, your friend will not be able to file for divorce at this time, unfortunately. See Louisiana Civil Code - Articles 103 and 103.1 and Louisiana Revised Statutes - RS 9:307 Click on the link below for more information: Kindly give a positive rating to my response so that I can receive credit for responding to your post.
