Divorce Question


#1

My son was married in June in NC, he also left in June for Korea the day after marriage. He officially didn’t tell his spouse until Aug that he wanted a divorce. So my question is just this, can he file for divorce in June? Also does he have to file for divorce in the state they were married being he is in the military can he file in the state he is currently stationed in?

He cannot file for divorce in NC unless one party actually lives here. As for when the separation will count, for NC the time will begin tolling from when one spouse left the marital residence with the intention of living separate and apart. It will count from when that party had no intention of returning.
