When families with children are separating, child custody is, in most instances, the most important issue to be resolved.

Child Support

In North Carolina, application of statutory child support guidelines can be a relatively straightforward process. However, each case is different.


One of the most frequent questions we are asked relates to the amount, duration, and manner of post-separation support and alimony.


In North Carolina, filed claims for both Custody and Equitable Distribution are subject to mandatory mediation.


Not all cases need to be litigated; they often settle with a private contract called a Separation Agreement and Property Settlement.
