You’ve been separated for a year. No assets, no kids, not even a dog to fight about. You just want a quick and simple divorce so you can move on with your life. You may even be asking yourself if you need an attorney at all. If this sounds like you, you’re in the right place.

The good news is, based on your specific circumstances, you may not require an attorney. Most Courthouses in North Carolina and South Carolina have self-help packets for parties seeking uncontested absolute divorces. Legal Aid of North Carolina also provides a divorce packet for spouses seeking to divorce in North Carolina without the assistance of a lawyer.

While we will often suggest self-help options, we urge anyone considering a divorce to consult with an experienced family law attorney first to ensure that a simple uncontested divorce is the right decision. Don’t worry, the consultation is not to sell you on an attorney you don’t need, but to provide you with all the information so you can make the right choice for you.

Thinking about meeting with an attorney? Here’s how to ensure you get the most bang for your buck.
