Divorce/ Separation

If your marriage is falling apart and counseling hasn't helped, it may be time consider legal separation and divorce.

In North Carolina, with very few exceptions, a married couple must live separate and apart for one year before they are able to legally divorce.

When you have decided to separate from your spouse, it is recommended that you seek the counsel of an attorney who practices divorce law.  Typically, a separation agreement is drafted and entered into upon the separation of the two spouses.  This agreement outlines who is responsible for what debts and how the property is to be distributed.  Additionally, alimony, child support and child custody are addressed in this agreement.
