Can we be separated while still living in the same house?

Can we be separated while still living in the same house?

Yes. However, this is more difficult to establish to a court, and will usually mean obtaining legal advice on what additional documents are needed. Setting up separate bedrooms, and not doing any domestic chores for each other is a start. You will need witnesses who can confirm that the separation did in fact occur, and was not just "made up" to try to shorten the separation period.

The Family Law Courts provide this fact sheet which explains what you need to do and the documents you will need to file with the Court.
