Separated But Living Together

If you are married or in a civil partnership and are planning a divorce or dissolution from your partner usually one of you will want to move out of the family home. However, this is not always possible.

This could be for several reasons, but quite often its due to financial constraints, as it may not be possible to sustain two separate homes. Another common reason could be the desire to maintain a stable family environment for children. Under either of these circumstances you may have no other option but to remain living together in the same house.

Under the old divorce rules, you could only get a divorce when living in the same house if you could demonstrate to the court that you had maintained separate lives during that period. Furthermore, you were required to explain to the judge how the arrangement worked in some detail.

However, all of that has now changed with the introduction of the government’s Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Act 2020 in England and Wales, commonly referred to as no-fault divorce.
