Greensboro Divorce : Absolute Divorce

A Greensboro divorce 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 simply means that neither partner in the marriage has to prove fault in order to get a Greensboro divorce. The process of obtaining an Greensboro divorce seems simple; If you meet the criteria for filing a divorce and then petition the court for a judgement of absolute divorce, the judge will grant the petition or explain why he cannot. BUT as with most simple things, they may end up being extremely complex, especially when emotions and children are involved. You need an experienced team of legal professionals to fight FOR YOU, to get the best outcome for your family, and at Dummit Fradin that is what we provide.

  • Judgement For Absolute Divorce.

Greensboro Divorce Criteria

The criteria that must be met for a Greensboro divorce are relatively simple. The first condition is that you must be lawfully married. Second, that one person in the marriage must be a citizen of North Carolina or have lived in Greensboro or the state for at least six months. Third, that the married couple live apart for one year. The fourth and last condition is that the time spent living apart must have been done with the purpose of ending the marriage contract. Once all of the conditions are met,a Greensboro Judge will either grant the divorce or instruct on how the above conditions were not met.

  • Marriage must be legal.

  • One person in the marriage must have lived the last six months in Greensboro or North Carolina.

  • One year separation with the intent to divorce must have happened.

Greensboro Divorce: Legal Separation

A normal Greensboro divorce begins with a separation of at least one year. This separation must be with the intentions 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 a involuntary separation. Although it is rarely done, it is wise to be aware of the possibility.

  • Live in separate residence.

  • One full year.

  • No shared cohabitation.

  • No sleepovers.
