Summary

This DIY course is for simple, uncontested divorces done by a court clerk, where the only thing either spouse wants from the court is a divorce decree. The course will create completed legal documents for you, walk you through the process, and includes some chat/forum support from a licensed attorney if needed.

Requirements

  • The spouses have been living in separate homes for at least 12 months.
  • At least one spouse has been living in the same NC county for the last 6 months.
  • Your spouse is not in the military or in jail, and you know their current address.
  • Neither spouse anticipates any disputes or needing any court orders.

Wait and Follow-up
A typical simple, uncontested divorce takes about three months. You can get divorced in 1-2 months with certain waivers and by driving to court in-person to submit documents. However, in most cases, the added complexity and inconvenience isn't worth expediting your divorce.
In addition to the fees for this service, the court will charge you $225 to file for divorce and there will be about $20 in other expenses like stamps.
No. Many DIY tools strongly infer (without technically saying) you can file for divorce online. You cannot. Courts require real paper documents with notarized ink signatures. You can use online services (like this one) to help you prepare the documents and walk through the process.
Many DIY tools are gimmicky click-bait with erroneous information and misleading advertising. I recommend only using tools operated by licensed, regulated, attorneys. The only competing North Carolina-specific DIY service I know of that is operated by licensed, regulated attorneys is the one offered by Rosen. Compared to our service, it's less of a step-by-step course and more of a monthly subscription for access to forums and resources. There are advantages and disadvantages to both approaches.
A lawyer will charge a higher fee, but they will handle a lot of the printing, signing, mailing, and other tasks the DIY course burdens you with. If you decide to hire an attorney to do the work for you, King @ Law does have full-service options.
There may be some situations where what you're asking for exceeds the scope of the service, is asking for legal advice, or amounts to doing the divorce filing for you. Mr. King may stop supporting you for these reasons or others.
