Divorce Word and Rings

Marriage is complicated and divorce is not an easy process. Like many states, North Carolina allows for "no fault" divorce after a couple has been separated for a year. North Carolina General Statute § 50-6 controls the requirements for absolute divorce in our State and applies when either party has resided in North Carolina for six months.

Divorce Isn't Easy

The exact point in time when a couple is considered legally separated in North Carolina is pivotal to the divorce process. This date impacts not only when a couple is eligible for divorce, but also directly impacts other steps in the divorce process such as property division (equitable distribution). Seeking experienced legal assistance when you, or your spouse, wants a divorce can dramatically impact the outcome of your divorce.

Protect Your Rights

North Carolina requires a party seeking various rights to file a complaint for those rights prior to obtaining an absolute divorce. It is important to understand you will waive your rights to alimony (money) and equitable distribution (property) if you do not make a claim for those rights at the proper time. Take the time to get legal advice prior to making any decisions which could permanently impact your life.
