Understanding Simple and Absolute Divorce

A simple divorce is the legal termination of your legal marriage. This is an uncontested divorce that can often be done quickly, without either party having to enter a courtroom. In order to be eligible for a simple divorce, at least one spouse must be a North Carolina legal resident, and the couple must live separately and reside at separate addresses for one year and one day (over 12 consecutive months).

Simple and Absolute Divorce

A simple divorce is a divorce that is an uncontested legal termination of the marriage. Many times, a simple divorce can be done quickly without having to go to court. In North Carolina, in order to qualify for a simple divorce, at least one spouse must be a legal resident of North Carolina and the couple must live separately, residing at separate addresses, for one year and a day.

Simple divorce is the non-legal term for an absolute divorce. When a New Bern divorce attorney files your paperwork in the court, that action is called an “absolute divorce.” In common conversation outside of a courtroom, the two terms can be used interchangeably. Simple divorce is the more common term.
