Divorce Decree Template that can be used in North Carolina courts?


I have a need for a divorce decree for insurance purposes and for getting a mortgage on a new home. Where is there an example and/or template I can use to submit to the courts. My work tells me I need a divorce decree that discusses I am to provide health insurance for my spouse or soon to be ex-wife if my place of work provides it. Mine does as long as the divorce decree says so. I also have been told by my bank that to get preapproved for a mortgage loan I need to have in the divorce decree that the mortgage company is not liable if something happens to the current mortgage that she will be responsible for even though when it sells in a few years the profits will be divided between the both of us. She is required to pay the mortgage while she stays there.

Please help with any examples or how I should proceed in the paperwork submitted to the courts. I have everything else ready except this part.

Thank you,


It sounds like you need to complete the absolute divorce process and get an absolute divorce judgment (i.e. divorce decree) signed by the judge, which would grant your divorce.

Check out our Do It Yourself Divorce Guide which has all the forms and templates necessary for you to schedule your divorce for a court date and to submit the proper judgment to the judge so you absolute divorce can be granted.
