Absolute Divorce in North Carolina

An absolute divorce in North Carolina may be filed after one year of separation from your spouse.

Contrary to popular belief and television, you do not need your spouse’s consent to obtain the divorce.

We simply serve the Complaint for Divorce and Summons on your spouse to start the process.

An absolute divorce ends certain rights that arise out of your marriage, so it is best to speak with an experienced family law attorney like myself to discuss the process. After your spouse is served, the process takes six weeks to finalize.
