Hi, i read the SelfService pdf describing how to proceed with my divorce in mecklenburg county, DIY style. The lengthy pdf contained all forms except “Certificate of Absolute Divorce”. They want me to drive downtown and physically pick it up. Is there no way to download all the right forms? Also the forms actually included are not “official” looking, with a very unprofessional looking footer:
© 1999 SelfServe Center G:\docs\common\FORMS\PROSE\DIVORCE\divdir2002.doc
These are nothing like the official looking summons: http://www.nccourts.org/forms/Documents/204.pdf
2nd part of my question is, i notarized a separation agreement with my ex a year ago, is it even needed in Absolute divorce? I did not see any instructions asking me to prove that i had been separate for 12 months and 1 day, or which property goes to which individual. Every property is currently in their rightful owner: house under only a single person’s name (separate), cars are too in singular owner.
3, i would like to serve my ex via the sheriff. Does that mean i have to bring a set of defendant-addressed and stamped envelopes? Do i need any self-addressed/stamped envelopes to file?
4, when the sheriff serves, does he deliver the summons, complaint, acceptance, waver, and verification form? or is up to my ex to obtain them?
