In North Carolina, the purpose of divorce is to dissolve or terminate a marriage. Without competent divorce or separation counsel, divorce can have a devastating impact on your life, your property and any claims for spousal support.
To obtain a divorce in North Carolina, you must be separated continuously for at least one year before filing for divorce by living in different residences with the intent to live separate and apart. Proof of fault is not required. Any claims for post-separation support, alimony, or equitable distribution must be made or reserved prior to the granting of an absolute divorce or you risk those claims being barred.
