Divorce

  1. You have lived continuously apart for at least a year and a day with the intention that the separation be permanent
  2. Either you or your spouse has lived in North Carolina for more than 6 months.

WARNING: A divorce ends your rights to the property acquired during the marriage (including cars, houses and furniture), child support and spousal support UNLESS the court has already made decisions on these issues. Consult with an attorney so that you can resolve these issues before the divorce becomes final.

Name Change

Changing the name on a birth certificate, for an adult or a minor, requires a court order. The I-CAN!

The I-CAN! Name Change form set is not for guardians seeking to change the name of a minor child and it is not for a person who is seeking to resume their maiden name.
