The separation clock (for getting the divorce) doesn’t start until you are both not living under the same roof.

There is no filing of separation in North Carolina. Separation is merely the period of time in which the parties live in separate residences. If you are going to execute a Separation Agreement addressing your property rights you may do so, so long as you physically separate immediately thereafter. Many separation agreements address the issue of when the outspouse will leave the home.
