My wife's sister is planning a move to the area from FL. Problem: her hubby is a thieving drug addict (as of late) and she's looking to divorce him. Thing is, he's going to make a fight of it, over the kids and her leaving the state. She wants to move over the next few months. If she begins proceedings in FL, she'll be lucky to get out of there anytime over the next year. So she's wondering about moving here and then dealing with it. She said someone had mentioned something called being "legally established" here before she'd be safe doing so.

Anyone have any idea what she might be talking about?

I'm guessing that they mean she has to be a resident here for six months before starting proceedings. They also have to be separated for a year, not living together during that time. They don't have to file anything such as a separation agreement, only attest to it unless of course he's going to fight it but then he'd probably fight filing an agreement.

Moving to NC isn't likely to speed up a divorce.
