How long does it take to get a divorce in North Carolina

The waiting period for a divorce in North Carolina is a minimum of 30 days for an uncontested divorce. This is the period between the start of the divorce proceedings (filing of documents) and the final court decision. Typically, it takes at least 45-90 days to get divorced. Then, the spouses get the final divorce decree.

The duration of any divorce directly depends on the specifics of a particular case. For example, divorces in which the couple cannot agree on alimony or child custody naturally take longer.

The next step is to serve the documents to the defendant. After waiting 30 days, the court sets a date for a hearing. Finally, ex-partners go to the court with prepared Judgment for Judge's review.

North Carolina is a no-fault divorce state. So, there are only two grounds:

  • If the spouses have been separated for more than one year;
  • If a couple lived separately for three consecutive years due to the incurable insanity of one of them.

In North Carolina, marital property is divided 50/50 if considered fair. However, North Carolina divorce laws consider many factors that would allow for an unequal division of property if a 50/50 distribution would be unfair.
