What You Need To Know About Divorce

North Carolina approaches divorce in a different way than many states. The purpose of an absolute divorce in our state is only to declare you “divorced.”

Being divorced does not take into account property distribution (also known as equitable distribition), alimony, child custody, or child support.

We can help you with all aspects of your divorce so you know what to expect, what is needed, and where your case currently stands.

What is needed for divorce in North Carolina:

You must have been a resident of NC for at least six (6) months

This statute requires established residency, not simply living in North Carolina for six months.

You must have lived apart from your spouse for the past one (1) year with the intent to be separated

The law requires both spouses to live under different roofs to be considered “separate and apart.” You cannot live in different bedrooms or one party in the basement while the other lives upstairs to satisfy this requirement.

Looking to avoid getting the court involved with your divorce?

Collaborative Divorce is a holistic, amicable approach to transitioning you and your spouse through separation and divorce by holding each of you to your highest personal values while maintaining respect, kindness and love through negotiations and finalizing their separation, property settlement, spousal support and child custody/support issues.

Each party and their attorneys focus collegially on how to transition the parties and their children through separation and divorce in the most effective way possible to ensure an amicable resolution without the anger, conflict or financial uncertainty ridden in litigation.

The cost is much less than traditional litigation as attorneys can charge flat fees for services removing the barrier of financial uncertainty in how to move forward.
