After reading through the super helpful divorce guide pdf Rosen provides, I checked the Mecklenburg County Clerk of Courts. They have an ICANN online service that looks like it provides the same paperwork Rosen says to use. The only difference is that the ICANN site says that with an uncontested divorce, “A judge will review your file during the week of your hearing date. You do not need to come to the court or contact the judges’ office about your divorce.” This is contrary to all the Rosen stuff I have read and since you guys got me through my QDRO, I trust you. But the info is off the Clerk of Courts site (and I really don’t want to go to court) so I want to believe that.
So my questions:
Has anyone used the ICANN site and was the paperwork they provided accurate?
Do I have to go to court if I file an uncontested divorce?
