In order to obtain a divorce in North Carolina, a couple must live separate and apart for one year and one party must have resided in North Carolina for six months prior to filing the divorce. Obtaining an actual divorce judgment from the court is generally a relatively simple process. A party can do this pro se (without a lawyer) or hire an attorney to obtain a simple divorce. However, it is quite common for people to refer to the entire process of separation, child custody, post-separation support, alimony and equitable distribution as "divorce".
