The term pendente lite is an old term which essentially means temporary. For instance, “alimony pendent elite” was the old term used to describe a type of support awarded to a dependant spouse during the pendency of the action (prior to an award of permanent alimony.) The statues no longer use the term and post-separation support is the substitute.

Mediation is a type of alternative dispute resolution in which parties to a dispute meet with a neutral third party who attempts to facilitate a settlement of the issues in dispute. Mediators do not make decisions or act as judges, rather they act as a liaison between the two sides. Many counties in North Carolina require that parties engage in some sort of alternative dispute resolution before a matter can be set on the court calendar for trial.

Litigation is the process by which disputes are put before the court for resolution. It begins with the filing of a Complaint (which initiates the lawsuit) and has varying stages including information gathering (called discovery) and eventually the trial in which a judge or jury (depending on the type of case) makes a decision to ultimately resolve the case.

There is no such thing as a limited divorce in North Carolina.
