    Hi Jason,
    Have a look at the Family Law Courts 'Divorce' page for information about separation, divorce and the steps to apply for a divorce. Generally, you'd need to be separated for 12 months before you can apply for a divorce. Its easier to show that you're separated if you don't live under the same roof, but you'll see there's information there about separated but living under the same roof.
