Separation question


#1

in your info ,it states that you have to be a resident of NC for 6 months when you file your divorce complaint. i have lived here for 14 years, but as we separate i will be living in another state for most of the 1 year required separation period. does that mean you have’ BEEN ‘’ a resident of NC for at least 6 months?. or a resident for the “LAST” 6 months? also if you have and ’ uncontested divorce’ is that the same as an ‘absolute divoce’’?


#2

Yes, uncontested divorce just means that no one is fighting the divorce. The vast majority of divorces in NC (and in the country) are uncontested. An uncontested divorce will become an absolute divorce once a judge signs off on it. To file for divorce in this state, one of the parties has to have been a resident of NC for at least six months prior to the filing. This means the immediate six months prior to filing. If your ex is still in NC, then you can still file for divorce in this state.


#3

we will BOTH not be a resident of NC. HE IS LEAVING THE STATE ALSO. SO HOW DO WE FILE FOR DIVORCE AFTER THE 1 YEAR AND 1 DAY?


#4

One of the parties has to have been a resident of NC for at least six months. If neither of you is currently a resident, then you cannot file for divorce in NC. You will need to learn the laws in your new state(s) of residence to see how you can obtain a divorce there.
