Going to Court?


Unless you’re contesting it, you don’t need to be there. Keep in mind that you lose your right to ask the court for alimony and/or a division of property once the divorce judgment is entered.

The only reliable manner to obtain complete and adequate legal advice is to consult with an attorney, fully explain your situation, and allow the attorney sufficient opportunity to research the applicable law and facts required to render an accurate opinion.

My soon to be ex informed me that I will not have to appear in court for our divorce, just him, stating that he wants the divorce (we are filing in Johnston County and it’s uncontested). Is this correct? I thought I had to be there too.
