By no means is North Carolina a “hurry-up-divorce” state.
Unlike Reno or Las Vegas, people don’t beat a path to Charlotte (or anywhere in North Carolina) to file for a quickie divorce.
While some may consider the NC divorce laws to be outdated, if not a bit paternalistic, it takes time to get divorced in North Carolina.
That’s true even for an uncontested divorce.
There are reasons for that, including meeting residency requirements, jurisdictional issues, local Rules of the Court, and the NC Rules of Civil Procedure.
