Understanding North Carolina Divorce Law
What is Absolute Divorce?
North Carolina is a “no-fault” divorce state, which means that neither party has the right to file for a divorce without providing fault or having the permission of the other spouse.
In North Carolina, a divorce is called an “absolute divorce”. To qualify, you must meet the following criteria:
- One spouse has lived in North Carolina for at least six months
