Establishing Fault for a Legal Separation
In North Carolina, you do not need to prove your spouse was at fault in order to obtain an absolute divorce. However, the state does require you remain separated for at least a year before the divorce is finalized.
Establishing fault during the separation process can affect your divorce proceedings later on.
The grounds upon which spousal fault can be established include:
- Cruel or violent treatment
- Drug abuse
You or your spouse must have been a resident of North Carolina for at least six months in order to file for separation within the state. Your Statesville legal separation lawyer can help you gather all the necessary evidence to build and present your case to the court.
