A comprehensive family law practice

In your initial consultation, you will complete an intake form that will identify your specific needs. One client’s divorce can differ greatly from another client’s divorce. We assess each person’s situation and proceed toward the best possible solution based upon this knowledge. For people experiencing divorce in Carteret, Craven, or Pamlico County NC, there are many items that will be decided upon in the settlement agreement. We strive to obtain favorable solutions in divorce agreements involving the following:

  • Child custody and visitation – If you are a parent who is going through a divorce, you likely have many questions regarding the care and custody of your children. Our firm can protect your rights as a parent and look out for the best interests of your children.
  • Child support – Child support payments in North Carolina are determined by statutory guidelines. Factors that are considered include each parent’s income, health insurance for the children and extraordinary expenses.
  • Property division – Marital property and debt division is a primary concern for most people experiencing a divorce. In North Carolina, property undergoes equitable distribution. Equitable distribution does not necessarily mean an equal distribution, and there are various factors that would give a judge reason to alter the distribution. Our firm can protect your rights as property is divided.
  • Alimony – We represent supporting spouses and dependant spouses in obtaining fair spousal maintenance amounts.
