Do I have to be notified of when motion for divorce will be heard in NC?

Not all motions have formal in-person hearings and many are granted as a matter of routine. Some divorces can even be completed by a court clerk. Your spouse is required to deliver ("serve") the motion to you, so that you are on notice that they filed a motion.

If this was for a divorce action that you were properly served with and did not file an Answer to - then no, you are not entitled to notice of hearing on the Motion (assuming it was for Summary Judgment).
