Child Custody/Divorce

Child Custody/Child Support in North Carolina

Child Custody issues can be emotionally overwhelming. The stakes are high, which is why you should sit down and speak with an attorney experienced in these types of cases.

Our courts follow the North Carolina Child Support Guidelines when determining a parent’s Child Support obligation. These guidelines are based upon: the gross income of each party, the amount of time the child spends with each party, the amount that each party spends on the child’s health insurance and work-related childcare costs, as well as other factors. Our Attorneys have handled hundreds of child support cases ranging from simple to complex issues. We are committed to obtaining the best possible outcome for you.

Alimony/Post Separation Support

Are you tired of fighting with your spouse but scared to leave because you cannot support yourself? You may be entitled to spousal support, even if you leave your spouse. Each case is different, but we can advise you how to apply for and receive spousal support while your case is pending, and beyond.


In North Carolina you must be living separate and apart for at least one year before you can file for divorce. Even if your divorce is not contested by your spouse, don’t make the common mistake of attempting to obtain a divorce on your own. You may understand the law, but not the procedures. You can easily lose benefits you seek, like alimony and property division, if you do not protect these benefits in your divorce action.
