An Overview of Our Family Law Practice

We work with men and women at all stages of a divorce, from the decision to file through trial to post-judgment requests for modification or enforcement of final divorce decrees. We handle all matters related to or arising out of divorce such as:

  • Child custody and visitation — We will help you develop and implement custody and visitation agreements that are in the best interests of your minor children and that promote regular and meaningful contact between you and your children.
  • Child support — We will evaluate all proposed support orders for compliance with North Carolina guidelines and ensure that all income is included in the calculation. We will also help you seek special dispensation when extraordinary expenses are incurred.
  • Separation agreements - We will draft and negotiate separation agreements and property settlements. Our goal is to minimize the cost and pain associated with separation and divorce.
  • Equitable distribution of marital debts and assets — Our attorneys will help you fairly divide debts and assets of your marriage, including real and personal property, financial assets and retirement funds.
  • Disputes regarding business property in a divorce — We know how to help you accurately obtain a valuation of a closely held or family business, and ensure that the value of the business is fairly divided between the parties.

We also provide experienced counsel in matters involving:

  • Adoption proceedings
  • The negotiation, preparation and execution of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements
  • Paternity or legitimation disputes
  • Third-party claims such as grandparent or relative custody/support claims
