Video: FAQ: One Year Separation in North Carolina | Hardin Law Firm PLLC

Media accounts of celebrity divorces may give the impression that the process is as simple as filing a document with the court. In North Carolina, however, the no-fault divorce statute does not work that way.

Specifically, an absolute divorce in North Carolina requires a one-year separation. That means the couple must have lived in separate households. Another wrinkle in the divorce process is that an absolute divorce in North Carolina does not necessarily require resolution of other pending issues, such as child or spousal support, child custody and property division.

To be confident that you have complied with North Carolina's unique divorce process, it is essential to consult with an experienced divorce attorney. Our attorneys understand that our clients generally want to have a favorable outcome achieved in matters of finance, their residence and any relationships before the divorce process is concluded.
