Our experienced divorce lawyers can provide aggressive representation to protect clients in hostile divorce proceedings, or guide them through the complexities of an amicable no-fault or uncontested divorce in an efficient and cost-effective manner.

Legal separation is when a married couple moves into separate residences prior to divorce. Our lawyers can assist you with drafting a Separation Agreement and Property Settlement.

Our child custody lawyers work with the interests of both our clients and their child(ren) foremost in mind as we help couples come to agreement on an appropriate parenting plan.

We ensure child support obligations are fair under the law, enforce child support agreements, and work with the court to modify child support agreements as financial situations change.

We work toward agreements that are fair and reasonable for both spouses/partners and that address the best interests of the minor children involved.

Equitable distribution” is not always a 50/50 split. We will conduct a full accounting of family debts, assets, marital property, and marital contributions to come up with a fair division of holdings.

We take into account the circumstances that exist in our client’s’ marriage, as well as each spouse’s abilities and needs as we work to secure a spousal support agreement that is adequate and fair.

When appropriate, we can work to arrange proper nonparental custody of children that honors and ensures maintenance of parental rights.

As situations change, our legal team can work to have agreements for divorce, support, visitation, custody, etc., revisited and modified effectively and efficiently.

Prenups” set out a happy couple’s expectations and understandings and, when done correctly, ensure fairness if the terms of the agreement need to be put into place.

We guide clients through North Carolina’s Special Proceedings and other legal requirements for private adoption of a relative, step-child, or another unrelated child.

Because North Carolina has not developed clear surrogacy laws, it is crucial to work with a well-versed and creative family law attorney from the start of a surrogacy plan.

We work to meet our clients’ desires while ensuring they understand their legal duties pertaining to issues regarding paternity rights and/or obligations.

We help abused spouses obtain and enforce Domestic Violence Protective Orders (also known as DVPO, a restraining order, or a “50B order”), and can assist with additional protection, if needed.
