Absolute Divorce in Greensboro

A divorce in Greensboro, NC is also known as an Absolute Divorce. In North Carolina, the only legal method of terminating a marriage is through a judgement of absolute divorce. North Carolina is a no-fault state, which means that neither partner in the marriage has to prove fault to get a divorce.

The process of getting a divorce in Greensboro seems simple. If you meet the criteria for filing a divorce you can petition the court for a judgement of absolute divorce. The judge will then grant the petition or explain why he cannot. But as with most simple things, they may end up being extremely complex. This is especially true when emotions and children are involved.

When things get complicated you need an experienced team of legal professionals to advocate for your rights and needs. At Dummit Fradin we’ll help you fight for your family.

Legal Separation in Greensboro, NC

A normal Greensboro divorce begins with a separation of at least one year. This separation needs to be with the intention of ending the marriage and both partners need to have separate residences. The Greensboro courts count the start date of the separation as the first day that you and your spouse started living apart with the intent to get divorced.
 
Living apart means separate residences; you cannot live in the same home and be considered separated.  This is the most common version of separation known as voluntary separation. There is another involuntary separation called “divorce from bed and board.” The Greensboro courts can force an involuntary separation. Although it is rarely done, it is wise to be aware of the possibility.
