Divorce

Divorce

An absolute divorce is the legal termination of a marriage. North Carolina is considered a “no-fault” state, meaning that a person does not have to allege any marital misconduct such as adultery, cruel and abusive behavior, or economic fault in order to seek an absolute divorce. In order to obtain an absolute divorce in North Carolina, a person, who has been residing in the state for at least six months, must intend to remain permanently separated from their spouse, and have done so for at least a year prior to the request.

While the divorce process alone can be relatively simple, there are essential claims, such as post separation support; alimony; and property division (equitable distribution), which can make the divorce process difficult if ignored. It is highly recommended to seek a family law attorney who can help protect all of your claims and interests.

The decision to end a marriage is not an easy one to make, especially in situations where children are involved. The process of getting a divorce can be a stressful one, but the good news is you do not have to take this journey alone.
