Not unless your separation was done by filing a Petition for Legal Separation and a Judgment was then entered by the court.
Got high regards on you jkgrandma. I love your advices; they make a lot of sense. With regards to this case, you are right. And to add more, as far as I have known a little about this case, in my country, when you are separated for 7 years and with no communication at all whatsoever, then this will be a heavy factor, too, to facilitate the fast grant of either the Legal separation or the Divorce (whichever is applicable in your country). If this is true to the 7 yrs then how much more with the 10 years of being separated.
It doesn't generally make a difference, here.
i think two years it is ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
