Divorce in NC

You can only sue for divorce in another state if one of you meets that other state’s residency requirements. For example, North Carolina requires at least one party to the divorce action to have resided in the state for 6 months prior to filing.

If the husband and wife got married in NC and are both residents of NC is it possible to get a divorce in another state? NC has the law that you cannot get divorced for 1 year from point of seperation and that is like torture to some people so I was wondering if it could be done in another state? Thank you, Courtney
