Divorce can leave both parties devastated, both emotionally and financially. You will most likely be faced with some of the most difficult decisions you have ever encountered. It is incredibly trying to make important decisions with emotions clouding your judgment. An experienced and knowledgeable attorney is vital as you face the end of your marriage. I can help you to determine what the best possible course of action will be within the facts. Like many other states, North Carolina has unique laws that must be followed to ensure that everything is done in adherence to those laws.
For example, North Carolina law requires a couple to be separated for one year and maintain separate residences before they can file for absolute divorce. During this time, the parties can negotiate child custody, child support, and property division agreements.
