Hello, and thanks in advance for any question you may answer.
I’ve served my year + 1 day of separation (plus a month) and would like to now file for divorce. I’ve relocated to another state approximately 4 months ago, but my soon-to-be exspouse still lives in wake county. As the plantiff, do I have to have resided in wake county for the past 6 months?
Also, our property distribution hearing is on the schedule for the coming months; does filing negate that in any way?
Lastly, I realize that I’ll have to be present to file the papers in wake county, but do I also have to be present at the court hearing 30 days later?
