Divorce

Where can I find additional information about divorce?

We hope the following link to an outside source may be helpful.

Legal Aid of North Carolina has a do-it-yourself divorce packet, which includes divorce forms that you might need, an explanation of the divorce process, and a glossary of terms you might encounter if you choose to get divorced. You should not use this packet, however, if you wish to get spousal support or divide property between you and your spouse.

WomensLaw.org is unrelated to the above organization and cannot vouch for the accuracy of its site. We provide these links for your information only.

You will find more information about divorce, including the risks of taking your children out of state while a divorce is pending, on our general Divorce page. To watch brief videos about divorce in Spanish with English sub-titles, go to our Videos page. Lastly, learn more about the court process on our Preparing for Court – By Yourself page.

WomensLaw serves and supports all survivors, no matter their sex or gender.
