Does not want the divorce


#1

If a couple is married in Texas but filed for the separation in North Carolina (and have been separated for a year) however, one of them moved back to Texas and is now refusing the divorce… what options are possible?


#2

The divorce can proceed in NC so long as one party lives in the state.


#3

What if she continues to refuse to sign the divorce papers?


#4

It doesn’t matter whether or not she signs papers. If a party files within this state after the 1 year separation period, they may be granted a divorce.

NOT AN ATTORNEY


#5

She does not sign the divorce papers, in NC only the court can grant a divorce, and it cannot be done via consent of the parties.
