My husband and I have been separated since Nov 2006. I have heard that you must wait a year (regardless how long you have been separated for before hand) to go to court after you file for separation or divorce form. Then I heard that you could be divorced just about immediately after filling out divorce forms if you have been separated for a year or more. My info is that I have a child by him and I live in Louisiana. I am awaiting news from an attorney but have to wait for maybe up to 30 days first and I just want to know before hand. I have not filled any paper of separation yet. So, my question is, even though he and I have been split up for 3 and a half years do I still have to wait another year to finally make it to court once I file for divorce?Answer Question

Go talk to a Lawyer. Every state is different. When I divorced in Washington state we filed the paper work, then we had to wait 3 months for the divorce to be final.
