Welcome to Dummit Fradin | Asheboro Divorce

At Dummit Fradin we have a team of Asheboro divorce attorneys that will assist those who are seeking an absolute divorce. All divorces in Asheboro and North Carolina are what is known as an “absolute divorce”. An absolute divorce is simply the termination of the marriage bond that was created when the marriage certificate was issued. In Asheboro, Randolph county, and all of North Carolina, a judgement of divorce does not require there to be anyone at fault. North Carolina is a “no fault” divorce state and does not require any party to be at fault. Once the judgement of divorce is handed down and recorded, the bonds of marriage are ended, and the previous couple are now considered legally single.

Asheboro Absolute Divorce

In Asheboro a divorce is also known as an “absolute divorce”. The only legal method of divorce in Asheboro, Randolph County and North Carolina is the absolute divorce. North Carolina is a “no fault” state, which simply means that the couple does not have to demonstrate any reason for the divorce to be granted. This is what is known as a “No-Fault Divorce”. In some states, there must be a party at fault to receive a judgement of divorce. The only way to get a Asheboro divorce is to petition the court for a “Judgement of absolute divorce”.  Once the judgement for absolute divorce is granted, the marriage is ended and both parties are considered a single person once again.

Asheboro Divorce : Legal Separation

Prior to petitioning for an Asheboro Absolute divorce, a couple must be separated for at least 1 year. There are two types of separation, “voluntary” and “divorce from bed and board”.  The Asheboro courts record the start date of the separation from the first day you and your spouse started living apart with the intent to be divorced. Living apart means separate residences; you cannot live in the same home and be considered separated. The Asheboro courts do not require a document or separation agreement for a separation to be legal, but a legal separation agreement can be helpful when you petition the court for divorce.

The majority of Asheboro separations are voluntary in nature, but it is important to be aware of the “divorce from bed and board” separation. The Asheboro courts can force a separation, although it is rarely done. It is important to know how this forced separation could be granted. Typically this decree is only used when one party refuses to enter into a separation agreement.

  • Separated for one full year

  • Live in separate residences for a full year.

  • No sleepovers.

  • No cohabitation.
