Charlotte Uncontested Divorce Lawyer

Making Your Divorce Proceedings Simple

At Jetton & Meredith, we have spent many years providing skilled family law services to men, women, and families in Charlotte and throughout North Carolina. During that time, we have encountered many clients who have been separated for a significant amount of time and who simply want to resolve their divorce so they can move on with their lives.

If there are no disputes in your situation involving the equitable distribution of property, child custody or alimony, an absolute divorce may be the right choice. Jetton & Meredith can help you navigate the process with ease.

Contact us at (704) 931-5535 for a no-obligation consultation.

What Is Absolute Divorce?

An absolute divorce in North Carolina is the dissolution of the marital relationship between two spouses. Once an absolute divorce is granted by a court, the parties to the divorce are no longer legally married.

An absolute divorce does not include provisions for equitable distribution of marital property and debt, nor does it specify who will have custody of children or establish a visitation schedule for the noncustodial parent.

The requirements for obtaining an absolute divorce in North Carolina are:

  • At least one spouse has lived in North Carolina for six months
  • The spouses must have lived separate and apart for at least one year

    Charlotte Absolute Divorce Law Firm

    Many people attempt and/or complete absolute divorces without the help of an attorney. However, it is important to understand that if you inadvertently omit important steps, the court may not grant you an absolute divorce.

    Once an absolute divorce is granted, you lose the right to seek equitable distribution or alimony, unless these causes of action are pending prior to the entry of the absolute divorce. Further, an absolute divorce does not resolve questions of child custody and visitation.

    Therefore, if any of these issues pertain to your marriage and divorce, we strongly urge you to work with an attorney to accomplish your absolute divorce. Jetton & Meredith is here to help you overcome these matters quickly and efficiently.*
