The question is where were they in the divorce process. If they had come to an agreement, then that would control. If they were truly in the middle, then your mom is considered married retraining notice or not. Without a will, all the children would share in her estate according to law.

Your wife's testimony that the marriage was irretrievably broken for at least 6 months prior to her signing the complaint is sufficient to establish that ground for divorce. It does not matter if you deny it, her attesting or testifying to that is sufficient.
no kids, cars or house are involved. I am moving out on oct 1st, 2019. I would like to file a no fault divorce for irretrievable breakdown in relationship for a period of at least 6 months. we have been married for 6.5yrs and my husband is not willing to work on us still after all these years.
You don't have to wait at all. You can file at any time, including while you are still living together based upon irretrievable breakdown of the marriage. Either see a lawyer immediately or get a do it yourself packet from your nearest Supreme Court or get all the forms and instructions on line.
I don’t know the first step in divorce. We have been separated for three years, have two kids, no courts involved, no child support. We are civil with one another, work well with our kids and have nothing to share/split from married but our kids.
Unfortunately, you cannot appeal the divorce as you defaulted. You may be able to open the divorce up depending on all the facts. I suggest you bring all the papers and information that you have to an attorney and discuss with him in his office.
