I am trying to obtain an absolute divorce without a lawyer. I have all the forms (filled out!), but I have two questions regarding divorce in North Carolina.
I have been a resident of NC for a year, and have been separated from my spouse for almost 3 years (he lives in California). Therefore I qualify for filing for an absolute divorce in NC, however my husband is a legal immigrant. Meaning he has permanent residence in the U.S., but he is not a citizen. He is a UK citizen. Can I still use the “do-it-yourself” kit, or is it a more complicated process? And will I need a lawyer? I really can’t afford one…
I lived in Durham for 9 months, but am now living in another county. I’d like to file all my paperwork in Durham, but will I run into trouble now that my address is in another county?
Thank you very much! I hope to hear from you soon.
