I am a battered wife. Can I still file a legal separation even if I am 68 years old? I just want to prevent my husband from selling our properties.


The filing of a legal separation case has no age limit as long as you file the case within 5 years from the time your cause of action occurs.

If your main concern is the separation of your properties, you may consider filing a judicial separation of property instead.
