In order to obtain a divorce in North Carolina, a couple must live separate and apart for one year and one party must have resided in North Carolina for six months prior to filing the divorce. Obtaining an actual divorce judgment from the court is generally a relatively simple process. A party can do this pro se (without a lawyer) or hire an attorney to obtain a simple divorce. However, it is quite common for people to refer to the entire process of separation, child custody, post-separation support, alimony and equitable distribution as "divorce".

The process to disentangle one's life from another after marriage can be difficult and painful. During marriage, parties often have children, buy homes, make investments both financial and emotional and entwine themselves together in a way that makes the process of "divorce" difficult emotionally and financially. We encourage parties to talk to an attorney about this process to help you in this time. Understanding the process, what is required and what may happen may help ease the stress and fear of the unknown. If you have any questions about obtaining a divorce, please contact one of our local family law attorneys in Mooresville, Statesville, or Taylorsville.
