There is no legal separation per se in NC. You must only be able to prove that you’ve been living separate and apart for a year prior to divorce.

Athos is correct, there is no legal separation in NC. After a year as passed you will file your sworn complaint and attest to the date you and your spouse began living separate and apart.
