Filing For Divorce in North Carolina
Divorce does not have to be a difficult or expensive process in North Carolina. We live in a no-fault divorce state, which means that no one has to prove fault before the marriage can be dissolved.
In North Carolina, marriages may be dissolved and the parties divorced from the bonds of matrimony on the application of either party, if and when the husband and wife have lived separate and apart for one year, and if one of them has resided in this state for a period of six months. N.C.G.S. § 50-6.
