Contested divorce after 1 year waiting period


#1

The divorce can be granted without resolving the other issues. There is no reason to wait on the other issues to obtain the divorce.

I have been seeing a man for 3 years. He has been legally seperated for almost 4 years. 2 weeks ago he had his lawyer presented a request to the wife’s laywer about divorcing and settling later. She, his (ex)wife informed him that she would not consent to the divorce until they agreed on the settlement. Can she do this? Or can he proceed with the divorce and settle later. They both are NC residents and neither are insane…though I may be by the end of this. What are his rights?

A response to this would be greatly appreciated. CClements
