Learn About the Divorce Process in North Carolina

Divorce will include many difficult decisions, strict financial management, compromises and aggressive strategies to achieve your goals. Wondering about the grounds for divorce in North Carolina and how best to proceed with your case? Our Charlotte divorce attorneys can help you achieve your goals in all aspects of your divorce by protecting your legal rights and developing a strategy that protects your interests.

We will work to identify and address such divorce-related goals as:

  • Child custody and visitation: Custody and visitation are determined by what is in the child's best interests. The courts look at a number of different factors to make this determination, and you need a talented divorce attorney to advocate for your children.
  • Child support: Child support is determined by a formula that considers both parents' incomes, as well as other factors. We will help you balance child support payments with your other divorce agreements and handle enforcement issues if issues arise after divorce.
  • Equitable property distribution: Your property requests must be filed before your divorce is granted, or you may lose some rights to certain property. Both assets and debts will be divided fairly in divorce. Issues concerning retirement benefits, business valuation, inheritance, and other investments are always addressed in high net worth divorce but could be part of any divorce case.
  • Spousal support (alimony): You must also request alimony before the divorce is granted, or you may lose your right to request alimony in the future.

Whether your case involves children or substantial assets or is relatively simple, our legal counsel and representation will ensure that the decisions you make today will minimize negative impacts on your future. Our divorce lawyers in Charlotte, NC offer dedicated legal support and guidance throughout the divorce process, and we work diligently to ensure your brighter future.
