What does this involve? Can you have it removed if you decide to get back together or do you have to be getting an actual divorced to get one?

No you dont have to get an actual divorce. What you are essentially ask for is an outline of each person's rights and destribution of custody and responsibilities. It is a way to live separately and have it be legal and fair rather than the two people involved fighting over it. It also will absolve one spouse from the responsibilities or debts of the other spouse during the separation period. If you decide that you would like to divorce, you will have to do that separately. You can go to the court clerk's office of your county's courthouse and they can give you the paperwork you will need and explain the procedure as well.

Thank you. What if someone buys a house during this time would it still be considered community property?

If you buy the house together, yes, I believe so.  But if you buy it separately, the separation agreement would keep the other person safe from the obligations (and disallow the benefits of homeownership) from the other spouse if there was a divorce (at least that's my understanding)
