As per hindu marriage act...you must show the reason..for seperation before one year to satisfy the court..or you can claim seperation if the marriage is void..there are some serious nature reasons.in which you can filed application..to the court.. you didnot mentioned your reason...you cant stay with your friend untill you get divorce..and period for divorce is after one year...if both r ready to divorce mutually can make.notorise draft..for declaration..that we will take divorce after one yr..till date we would not complaint any way abt each other..in any pilice stn..and after one year to support divorce petition it can be filed in divorce petition...

Yes..
You can stay away as well as you can file for divorce..
If he is also ready to give divorce then you both can file for Divorce by Mutual Consent.
If he is not ready then you can file Petition for Divorce against him on appropriate grounds..
Hope this helps !!

You divorce file divorce and if it is with mutual consent then u will get 6 months legal separation. So far staying with friend will have no legal consequences coz finally you are staying with friend as err sharing accommodation with friend can not create legal complications provided no illicit or illegal relationship is established.
