Separation is when one or both parties to a marriage or defacto relationship decide to no longer continue the domestic relationship with their partner. Once that decision has been made, communicated to their partner, and acted on in some manner, the separation is in effect. You do not need to formalise a separation through the courts. Courts may be required to formalise a property settlement, parenting arrangements, and/or to get a divorce.
