You can file for divorce in the state you were married in (even if neither you or your spouse currently live there) or in the states in which you and your spouse are residents of. Typically, to establish residency in a state you need to live there for somewhere between 6 months to 1 year. That being said, it is best to file for divorce where you live now to save yourself the trips to other states but nevertheless you have options.

Is it legally a divorce after 18 years of separation in NC?

You can only be legally divorced if you get a legal divorce. It doesn't matter how long you have been separated. Separation only means you are no longer living together. Separation is not divorce. You are still married. What's keeping you from getting a legal divorce? I think you already know you are still legally married. Who is it you are trying to fool...or is it that still being married keeps you from being able to make the kind of commitment that the person you are now with probably wants. Nice safety net for you.. but not very mature. Get a divorce and get on with it.

The divorce can be filed by either person, provided they meet residency rules.

Can you file for divorce in California if you were married in Washington?

You can file for divorce in the state in which you were married or the states in which you and your soon to be ex-spouse are currently residents.

However, you need to make sure you meet the residency time requirement before being able to do so. This can range from 6 months to 1 year.

Can one person be divorced and the other still married?

In the US... Assuming you're talking about two people married to each other, no, one can't still be married and the other be divorced. They're either both married to each other or both divorced from each other. It is possible that a divorce was granted without one party being aware of it, if they were unable to locate that person to serve notice of the divorce, in which case they do a divorce by publication (publish a legal notice in the newspaper).
