family law

Ensure your family is well taken care of regarding any issues involving family law. My team and I provide assistance through everything from your initial separation to preparing and filing legal claims for divorce, child custody, child support, alimony and property distribution.

alimony

Protecting yourself from financial disaster is imperative after a divorce. I will guide you through the complex financial documents required by our courts to fairly assess your financial needs and advocate to ensure you have the necessary financial support to move forward with your life.

child custody

Make sure you get the time you deserve with your children. Whether you’re seeking joint legal custody, primary physical custody, or shared physical custody, we will always fight for what is in the best interests of your children.

child support

Getting financial support for your children after a separation or divorce is crucial to your financial stability and their well being. We’ll help negotiate the correct amount based on a proper application of the North Carolina Child Support Guidelines.

divorce

Save time, confusion, hassle and effort by letting us file your uncontested divorce action.  We will handle all the documents, fees and service -- you will not even need to take a day off from work to appear in court!

prenuptial agreements

Signing a prenuptial agreement is beneficial for those looking to protect themselves in the event of a divorce. As an experienced family law attorney, I draw up these agreements as well as defend them in the event of a lawsuit.

property distribution

When you choose me as your attorney, I will ensure you get what you are rightfully entitled to across the board by fairly and properly accounting for and dividing all aspects of your marital estate, including real property, personal property, retirement benefits, investments, business interests, and debt.

name changes

Taking your partner’s name is a time-honored tradition, but should you go through a divorce, you may want to legally reclaim your former surname. Further, there are times when you are entitled to change your child's name. Rely on my family law firm to make it happen quickly and efficiently.

separation agreements

Deciding to handle your separation, and all the attendant issues surrounding a separation, with an agreement is often far more expedient and financially beneficial to everyone involved than litigation.  If you find yourself in the position of needing advice regarding a separation agreement, rely on me to guide you through all the steps to ensure you have a fair, valid and binding agreement.

step-parent adoptions

Adopting step-children is something many step-parents do in order to promote a bonded family unit. If you are thinking about legally adopting your step-children, ensure you understand your rights and responsibilities with the help of a professional family law attorney who will handle every aspect and walk you through the process, step-by-step.
