    shocked. so if i'm in NC and want a divorce, it'll be april 2014 before it's official?

    wow.

    •  that's correct. (0+ / 0-)

      And if your spouse refuses to sign the paperwork and you have to take him/her to court to do it, nothing is official until after that date.

      My neighbor has been through the process for well over 18 months since she kicked him out, and she still has 2 months left before they are 'officially' divorced. He's dragging it out by forcing her to take everything to court. Give an abusive spouse 24 months of this behavior and an acrimonious divorce could take 3-4 years.

      This bill brought to you by divorce lawyers, who see this as a wonderful 'jobs bill'
