What are the Requirements for Same-sex Divorce in Raleigh
In the state of North Carolina, marital unions between two members of the
same sex hold the same status legally as marital unions between two heterosexual
people. Therefore, the requirements for divorce are exactly the same as well.
The critical requirements for obtaining a divorce in North Carolina include:
- The two parties must have been separated for at least one year prior to filing
- At least one of the parties must have held a residency in the state of
North Carolina for at least six months
- All the forms for your county family court need to have been completed
Sometimes, the proceedings for divorce can become more complicated if you
had gotten married to your partner in another state before 2014 when North
Carolina legalized same-sex marriage. However, for individual circumstances
such as this, our knowledgeable attorneys can provide you with detailed
information during a consultation.
Overcome the Legal Challenges of Same-Sex Divorce
Just like heterosexual marriages, homosexual marriages can also face lots
of challenges during the actual process of divorce as well. Everything

one member is physically or mentally debilitated, or in any way unable
to pay for child or spousal support on account of emergency circumstances.
Some of the areas which our knowledgeable lawyers can help you resolve
issues include those related to:
- Division of property
- Spousal support and alimony
- Child custody and shared adoption
- Child support
