It is possible for you and your spouse to live separately and apart under the same roof during the separation period.
If you intend to live separately in the same home, you should consult a solicitor first, because living in the same home complicates a divorce. Someone who knows you and your spouse may have to tell the Court that you have lived separate lives while still under the same roof.
You and your spouse should not sleep together or socialise together, and domestic chores should only be done for the other if it is understood and acknowledged that such help is given for the sake of practicality or convenience.
