Bed and board North Carolina divorce


What is the general statute for bed and board in North Carolina for an affair. I had an affair a year and a half of that and my husband took me back the same day and I have not left home since and he has maintained he forgives me although it has been very hard we have been through a lot of physical violence but now he says he is done and I have to get out. After working a year-and-a-half so hard at our marriage


To file for divorce from bed and board, there must be fault grounds. Adultery/illicit sexual behavior is one type of fault ground. However, you may have a defense to say that your husband condoned the affair since you remained in the marital relationship and seemingly had reconciled.
