When someone files a divorce or when they file their counter claim for divorce one thing they must allege is the date of separation. I know a lot of people get confused and concerned because they're still living in the same house. But you can still live in the same house and be separated. The separation that is referred to is actually the end of intimacy.
What you would need to allege is the date or about the date of the last time that the parties were intimate.
Then the state requires that you remain in a bona fide state of separation, which means no longer intimate. Don't resume those intimate relations after the case is filed.
I hope this helped, if you had any questions about the date of separation, understanding that you can still live in the same house but be separated.
