WE CAN HELP YOU AT ALL STAGES OF THE PROCESS
North Carolina requires that prior to divorce, spouses live separate and apart for a period of 12 months. The couples must actually live separate and apart; it is insufficient to live in separate parts of the house or separate bedrooms. Even couples living in separate households who maintain the appearance of being married do not meet the separation requirement. Examples of maintaining the appearance of being married include appearances in public places, shared meals, shared travel, access to one another’s living spaces, as well as other factors.
The process of divorce begins with separation and comes with a number of life-changing challenges. An attorney does not have to draft the separation agreement or be present when one is signed, but it is a good idea to involve an attorney in the process.
