In Rem or Quasi Rem


Dear javaking66:

Greetings. If you have lived in the county you are filing the divorce and ED action in for the six months immediately preceding your filing, the court will have jurisdiction over the divorce and ED. You should not worry about jurisdiction in rem or quasi in rem. Best of luck.

I am going to file for absolute divorce and we do not have property to divide or alimony or child custody issues to be sorted out.

The only thing which I need to get the ownership on is the car which I transferred to my husband’s name after we got married. I had purchased that car before we got married and transferred it to his name after getting married.

So along with my divorce action I will file for ED action which will a request to get the car back to my name.

Now my question is : Is "Jurisdiction in rem or quasi in rem " NC GS 1-75.8 applicable to me still.

Thank you very much for your help and undivided attention.
