Going through a divorce or separation can at times feel overwhelming. While divorce is never a simple process, working with an experienced attorney can help. I have been helping clients throughout North Carolina resolve divorce issues for over 25 years.

If you are going through a divorce or seeking separation, contact me today to schedule an appointment.

Requirements For A Divorce

For a divorce to be granted in North Carolina, a couple must live separate and apart for at least a year, with one of the parties having lived in the state for at least six months prior to filing. I can help you navigate the legal processes involved with a divorce and make the process more efficient and affordable.

The divorce decree officially ends the marriage. However, most issues involved in these cases can be settled prior to the official divorce, through mediation, including:

How A Separation Works

There are a variety of ways in which a couple can go about being separated. Some simply live apart while others decide amongst themselves how to resolve their issues and then have an attorney formulate an effective strategy to protect their interests. Consulting with an attorney can help individuals protect their interests by:

  • Protecting property
  • Minimizing conflict with children
  • Maintaining their standard of living

How Divorce Proceedings Are Changing

We are increasingly seeing individuals deciding to start families at a later date and subsequently divorcing later in life. Such individuals may be bringing into their marriages more in finances, real estate and other assets. Also, couples are now marrying after having children from a previous marriage.

Under such situations, it is important to have a family law lawyer on your side with the experience to deal with the unique circumstances of your case. I am an attorney who regularly handles high-asset divorces and who understands the facets of North Carolina's divorce law.

Protect Yourself From Violence

If domestic violence is involved, there are legal remedies that enable a spouse to get immediate ex parte relief without a court hearing or notice to the other party. If you feel like your safety, or the safety of your children, is compromised, contact me as soon as possible.
