No matter what issue you are facing, we are here to fight for you!

At Powers Landreth PLLC we handle cases in the following areas of Family law in Mecklenburg County and the surrounding areas of North Carolina:

  • Divorce – Whether you are facing a contested divorce or uncontested divorce, our goal is to fight for you and protect your interests.
  • Child Custody – We understand that your child is priority number one. Our family attorneys will fight to protect the best interests of your child.
  • Child Support – Supporting a child or children these days is a very costly endeavor. Our family law attorneys will work tirelessly to preserve your financial interests and the interests of your children, to help meet their needs during their childhood.
  • Equitable Distribution – Marital property should be divided fairly between divorcing spouses, with each spouse retaining his or her separate property. We work to see that all assets and debts are properly identified and accurately valued for a fair property division that meets your needs.
  • Post Separation Support/Alimony – Post Separation Support and/or alimony is money paid to a dependent spouse to maintain a standard of living he/she grew accustomed to during the marriage. Whether you are the supporting spouse or the dependant spouse, our goal is to ensure you are not overpaying or being shortchanged in the negotiations.
  • Prenuptial/Postnuptial Agreements – A martial agreement is a contract between spouses getting married (prenuptial) or who are already married (postnuptial) and is used to address an exhaustive number of issues between the spouses so there is not a battle in the unfortunate event of a divorce.
  • Separation Agreements – A negotiated contract between spouses, without court involvement, used to resolve any and all aspects relating to a pending divorce proceeding.
  • Contempt Proceedings – Contempt proceedings are held when a party has willfully violated a valid court order. A “show cause” hearing is held to determine if and why the party violated the court order. If a violation has occurred, the court may take further action, including imprisonment.
  • Domestic Violence – When one is seeking protection from a violent partner or has been accused of committing an act of domestic violence, a hearing is held to determine if a twelve-month protective order will be put in place by the court.
  • Same Sex Marriage – Special considerations are taken regarding same-sex marriage to help protect parties and their property to help afford the same protections other married couples enjoy.
