I read on a legal website that there is a 60 day waiting period in Kansas after filing for divorce before it can be decreed. Do we have to live under seperate roofs and/or separate bedrooms during this time period?
In Kansas, unless the court has entered an order declaring the existence of an emergency, no decree of divorce may issue until sixty (60) days have elapsed from the filing of the petition for divorce. KSA 60-16-1617
There is no requirement that you live under separate roofs although continuing marital relations (intercourse) could under some circumstances be used as a ground to stop the divorce if one of the parties desired to do so based on that ground.
