We Help Cary Residents Going Through a Divorce
North Carolina is a no-fault divorce state. You do not need to show the other spouse’s fault for the marital breakdown. Instead, you merely need to prove either one of two grounds:
- Your and your spouse have lived separate and apart for at least one year, and either one of you have lived in North Carolina for six months; or
- You and your spouse have lived separate and apart for at least three years due to one spouse’s incurable insanity.
Don’t assume that this process is simple. Difficult issues can often arise. For instance, spousal support and equitable distribution of property actions must be brought before the divorce is final. If you do not take the proper steps, it may cost you important rights.
Our law firm also assists with legal issues that often arise as the result of one spouse obtaining an out-of-state divorce.
