Understanding Divorce in North Carolina
If one or both spouses want to end the marriage, either may file for divorce. In North Carolina, you are not required to have specific "grounds" to file for divorce. However, the couple does need to meet certain requirements to qualify for a North Carolina divorce.
According to North Carolina G. S. 50-6, a couple must meet all of the following requirements:
- The parties must have lived apart (in separate residences) for at least one year
- At least one of the spouses must have been a NC resident for six or more months
In North Carolina, there are two types of divorce: contested and uncontested. A contested divorce occurs when the divorcing parties cannot agree on one or more aspects of their divorce. In these cases, unless the parties later agree, they will have to litigate the contested matters in court. Uncontested divorces can be achieved when both parties agree on all of the particulars of their divorce settlement, such as spousal maintenance, property division, etc. If you and your spouse initially file for a contested divorce but resolve your disputes after filing, you may resolve your case without the need to go to court.
We are sometimes asked if it matters who files for divorce (no, it doesn't) and whether you have to have the consent of your spouse to obtain a divorce (no, you don't). In fact, your spouse doesn't even need to sign divorce paperwork or show up to litigate in court. However, you must serve your spouse the appropriate legal documents that you have filed for divorce.
