Divorce & Separation

North Carolina is a no-fault divorce state. There are requirements that parties must meet to be eligible for divorce, the most significant being that the parties must have been separated from one another at least one year and one day before either party can file for divorce.

Children & Custody

Issues related to child custody and child support can often be some of the most stressful and emotionally taxing. When parents are separating from one another, agreeing on what is in the best interests of their children can be difficult. Life events – like moves, remarriages, new schools – often confound these already complex issues.

Alimony & Support

Alimony is a payment for the ongoing support and maintenance from one spouse (or former spouse) to another. To be entitled to alimony, the receiving spouse must be substantially in need of support from the other spouse; and the paying party must have a demonstrated ability to pay support.

Property Division

In North Carolina, the division and distribution of marital property is called Equitable Distribution (ED). Marital propertyis all property that was acquired during the marriage, by either spouse, regardless of title, other than property that received as a gift or by inheritance. Property that was owned by a spouse before marriage, or property that was acquired during the marriage by gift or inheritance, is called separate property, and is not subject to equitable distribution by a court. Divisible property is property that was earned during the marriage but received after date of separation or passive growth on marital property.

Domestic Violence

In North Carolina, restraining orders are called “domestic violence protective orders,” or DVPOs for short. These types of orders are suitable in cases of violence, threats, or harassment between people who have a “personal relationship” with one another. That is: current or former spouses, persons of the opposite sex* who have currently or have previously lived together, parents or grandparents, persons that have a child in common, current or former household members (i.e. roommates), or persons of the opposite sex* who are currently or have previously been in a dating relationship.

Nonstandard Claims

For some people, claims that are considered “typical” in domestic cases don’t always fit. Many legal remedies that apply to married couples won’t work for people in unmarried, long-term relationships. Sometimes situations arise between couples who are married that can’t be resolved with standard claims. Fortunately, there are creative solutions to address a variety of problems that can often arise when relationships fall apart.
