Absolute Divorce – Some Requirements

All actions for divorce in North Carolina must be “verified” by the filing party, which is to say that the party must state in writing before a notary that the contents of the divorce complaint are accurate and true. If the Plaintiff is a non-resident of North Carolina, the action must be brought in the same county in which the Defendant resides. In all actions for divorce, the complaint must state whether any children were born of the marriage, and if so, their names and ages must be included in the complaint. To avoid having the parties attend a court hearing, the Court may grant a divorce by summary judgment based on affidavit, verified motion, or other verified pleading.
