Do me and my spouse have to be living separate to file for divorce?

No, a married couple does not need to live separately in order to file for a divorce in Georgia.

However, a wife and husband must be “separated” in a legal sense – but not necessarily physical living apart before filing for divorce.

In other words, a married couple may be considered as “separated” in a legal sense and file for divorce, even if they are living in the same household – so long as they are not sexually or physically intimate.
