Kathryn Graham, Civil Associate

North Carolina has “no-fault” divorce.  That means if you have been separated for more than one year and at least one of you intended to separate, you are entitled to a divorce.  There doesn’t have to be any wrong-doing on anyone’s part, and wrong-doing won’t speed up the process.  While this seems fairly simple, there are many mistakes a person could make that can cause you serious problems. 

The Clerk’s office can sell you a do-it-yourself kit for filing a divorce, but they cannot help you with legal advice.  Before you file for a divorce, you must make sure you have legally-enforceable agreements related to alimony and how to divide your marital property and debts, because after the divorce, you lose the right to ask for alimony and equitable distribution forever.

After filling in the divorce paperwork the Clerk provides, you could spend half a day in court waiting for your divorce hearing, and if everything wasn’t done correctly, the judge can deny your divorce and you would be back to where you started.  I have helped a number a people after this very thing happened to them.  It is possible to be successful without an attorney’s help, but why would you risk the frustration and possibly waste your time?

I handle uncontested divorces for a flat fee.  You know what it will cost, you know it will be done correctly, and in most cases, you won’t even have to come to court.  If you are ready for divorce, or just have questions, Call me – and let me take care of it for you correctly – the first time.
