I want to file a motion and it was through a legal separation in N.C.?
A separation is an agreement whereby the husband and wife live apart from each other while remaining married, either my mutual consent (often a written agreement) or by judicial decree.
In North Carolina the parties can file a court action, divorce from bed and board, child support, post separation support, alimony, equitable distribution and child custody prior to their divorce.
A separation agreement is a contract between spouses in the process of divorce or legal separation concerning alimony, property division, child custody and support, and the like.
North Carolina requires issues such as equitable distribution and alimony to be filed prior to the date of divorce or they could be deemed waived.
