Divorce Law

The residency requirement is 6 months. There are only two grounds for divorce in North Carolina: one-year separation and incurable insanity. For a one-year separation you must assert, under oath, that you and your spouse have lived separate and apart for one year. You must live in separate residences during that year. You do not need to file any papers to document the beginning of your separation; your assertion is sufficient to prove that the year has elapsed. The second ground for divorce in North Carolina is incurable insanity. This ground is rarely used.
