Charlotte Divorce Lawyers Serving North Carolina and South Carolina

During a divorce, tensions tend to run high, which may result in seemingly straightforward, common legal issues to become complicated very quickly. Our Charlotte divorce lawyers are here to help if you have questions about:

Who gets to stay in the house? Am I going to lose the car I drive? Am I going to have to buy my ex-spouse a new car? Who are the kids going to live with? Am I going to be responsible for my ex-spouse’s debt? What is going to happen to the debt we have together? Am I going to get financial support during our separation and after we divorce? Can I file for divorce on my own, or should I hire a divorce lawyer in Charlotte? How much is child support? Who gets the kids?

Our Charlotte divorce attorneys will guide you through this stressful and difficult time in your life. We take a cutting-edge approach to handling divorce, child custody, adoption and other family-related legal matters across the State of North Carolina, employing technology to make the process easier on you.

Family Law Attorneys Who Listen to Their Clients

We understand that you cannot take a “cookie cutter” approach to all cases. The strategy for handling each case is specific to the circumstances and needs of each particular client. In some cases, the individuals involved are willing to handle issues amicably, and the strategy is much more relaxed and straightforward. In other cases, the tension is at an all-time high, and resolving issues will not be as cordial. In those cases, we are ready to employ creative and aggressive strategies to help our clients, whether we are in the negotiation process or at trial in court. No matter the strategy, legal services necessarily involve listening to clients and explaining the different family law matters to them.

“We are courtroom advocates, dedicated to tenacity, preparation, and hard work.”

– Bill Powers, Divorce Lawyer Charlotte NC

It may take formal litigation and a ruling by the Court before reason prevails. An experienced family law attorney will carefully analyze the marital history, making certain to consider the implications of equitable distribution, a cheating spouse, claims for Alienation of Affection, Criminal Conversation, post-separation support (PSS in North Carolina), interim distributions, and child support.

Obtaining an absolute divorce in North Carolina may be more complicated than you realize. You may not be able to immediately file for divorce, contrary to how other states may operate.

We provide legal services to our clients from a simple divorce to complex case with a number of legal issues to hash out between the parties. That may include child custody, visitation, support, and enforcement of pending Court Orders (Motions to Show Cause and Show Cause Orders).

While you may not understand where to begin, our Charlotte family lawyers do. Our goal is to guide you through the separation and divorce process while taking into consideration your unique circumstances. We want to ensure what’s important to you is protected to achieve the best possible result we can in your particular case.
