My husband and I want to do a 1 year no fault divorce. We have an agreement on everything and want to do a simple divorce. What happens if neither of us have a witness to testify that we have lived separate 1 year?
You must have corroborating evidence that you've been separated at least 12 months in the form of testimony from an independent third party. If you don't have that, I doubt a judge will grant the divorce.
Do you not know anyone at all that you explained to about no longer living together? You have no one that can say they know you (or he) moved out and are living in separate places for that time? Or a collection of them to cover most of that time? You can if you think of it.
If not, then the judge can doubt your story and deny the divorce until you meet the requirement. SO start telling people and having them over so you can get those witnesses set.
