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.
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.*
Prompt, thorough, understanding and knowledgeable, are only a few of the adjectives that describe Jetton & Meredith. Fabulous lawyers, highly recommend for any family law cases!!- Former Client
Eric Meredith represented me during what turned out to be a lengthy divorce settlement. During the first meeting, he fully explained the process ahead and answered all my questions and concerns. I still remember the feeling of relief after that meeting knowing I had a true professional in my corner. Eric, along with his Paralegal Julie, kept me updated along the way and were quick to respond with any additional issues. Not only did he call with any updates to the case, he also would ask how I was doing. I cannot recommend Eric at Jetton & Meredith enough.- Tim
I highly recommend Mark. I hired him to handle a simple assault charge that was filed against me. Mark handled it professionally and expeditiously. He explained each step in the process, and everything happened just as he described. He is exactly the type of lawyer you want representing you.- J&M Client
Great service and very personal. Jetton & Meredith are very hardworking attorneys. I will recommend Jetton & Meredith to anyone in need.- Former Client
I cannot stress enough how great the customer service was with Jetton & Meredith, with my case being a little more complicated I had the opportunity to work with both Mr. Jetton and Mr. Meredith. I can say they know their stuff, Mr. Jetton was able to get my case dismissed the first time we went to court, no questions asked. Working with Mr. Meredith was a longer process but he walked me through the steps and gave me realistic expectations of an outcome that he was able to provide just as he stated he would do. I couldn’t be more pleased with my decision to hire Jetton & Meredith as my attorneys, and I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of an attorney!- Former Client
This law office far exceeded my expectations. All options and possible outcomes were set before me from the start and everything was handled in a professional and timely manner. Not only will I use this law firm again, but I would also and have already recommended them to the people I care most for. Thank you for all you’ve done.- Former Client
