Can I separate from my husband but live in the same house?
Thank you for getting in touch with amicable.
There is no legal reason why you can't live under the same roof whilst you separate, and Zoopla have released research that shows most couples will live together, on average, a year and three months after separating. This doesn't mean it's easy, especially when emotions are high. We have a guide to helping you navigate living together under one roof as you separate, which you can read by clicking here.
