Since you ahve never lived in NC than you can file in Maryland and you should file in Maryland because if you file in NC you will have to wait a year to be divorced…if you have proof that you have never lived together than you may not have to be seperated 1 year and 1 day before the divorce proceedings can begin!!!

Go to your local court house and file for a NON-Contested divorce and he will have to go to your state for the mediation and divorce hearing.

No one wins in divorce only the Lawyers do!

Just reread your posts…correction…

How long did you live in NC??? IF you lived there less than 6 months than you were never a legal resident of NC…and if you have lived in Maryland for 6 months to a year than you CAN file in your state and I would tell you do that because in NC you have to be seperated 1 yr and 1 day (but since you are not living together than you might be exempt) before the divorce proceedings will begin than it will not be final for ONE year.

I was able to file for divorce in Fla because I never lost my residentcy…or that is what the judge here said! :slight_smile:

Dear Mathy73:

Greetings. Yes, you can hire an attorney in North Carolina to file the divorce for you, but the first date that you could file for divorce in North Carolina is one year from the last date that you lived together as husband and wife. If the last date you spent together as husband and wife was February 27, 2003, then the first date you could have filed for divorce is February 28, 2004. Be sure that you know the last date that you both acted spouses.

The divorce process is generally cheap and relatively fast (about 2 months). You can file an attorney to file it for you, and let us know if we can help. Best of luck.

Dear DivorceSucks:

You are incorrect. It does not matter if they have proof that they never lived together…they still have to be separated for one year from the date of separation, which may also be close to the date of marriage.

There is no mediation for an absolute divorce. It may be the easiest thing for Mathy73 to file in North Carolina…as many, many people file in North Carolina for divorce without even coming to the state. Best of luck … and by the way, many of my clients win.

I am 31 years old and I got married since Feb 26th, 2003 in Davidson County, NC. Now I would like to get divorced because my husband and me have many incompatibilities. I live in Maryland since that date and he still live in High Point, NC. Any of us never wanted to move. We don’t have any children, no property, never got any physical contact (sex), never live together for one day. He agreed to get divorced but let me make that step. What should I do? Where to start? How to protect myself? Can I get an attorney who can represent me with me not being there? How to make all that processus cheap and fast? Is it a problem because I live in Maryland before and after I got married? Please I really do need your help because I don’t know what to do. I am from Africa and moved in the US since almost 4 years as a refugee. I expect yours answers as soon as possible.
