Husband and I are just getting an absolute divorce in Mecklenburg County, no property or children to fight over. I’m the defendant in this case.
I was told that I don’t have to file an answer if I agreed with everything on the paperwork, and that I don’t have to go to the hearing. Is this true?
Is there any way that I could be stuck with the fees for the divorce by not showing up?
And how soon after the court grants the divorce can I go change my name? Can I do it the same day if I go to the courthouse afterwards?
