There is no required period of separation for being able to file for divorce, as long as the residency requirements are satisfied. A petition can be filed at any time. A court can hear a divorce whether or not the spouses are living together. There is a waiting period before the divorce can be finalized, however. That time period is often referred to as a cooling off period. After the petition is filed and the service is on file, the spouses have to wait at least 60 days before they can finalize the divorce.
