Are you going through a divorce?
There are many issues that you must consider when ending a marriage. Depending on how long you have been married and the amount of assets and liabilities involved, your divorce may be complicated.
Alimony and Spousal Support: Under state law a spouse may be entitled to spousal support pending divorce and alimony following the divorce. The court may consider such factors as the respective income of the parties, marital fault, the needs of the parties, and ability to pay. Our experienced divorce lawyers can help you get results.
Equitable Distribution of Property: There is a presumption that the net property acquired during marriage should be divided fairly. You need an attorney to help you consider the tax implications of property distribution, retirement plans, and stocks.
How do I know how much child support is appropriate?
In North Carolina, what is an appropriate award in your case is determined by a set of statutory guidelines. The court will examine your gross income and make certain other adjustments. Some things are hard to fit neatly into a guideline. We have worked with countless child support awards, and can get an appropriate award for you.
