In our experience, most families that come to us are struggling with separation, divorce, or the aftermath of either. As such, our law firm has gained immense experience in dealing with cases like:
Nobody plans for their marriage to end in divorce. That is why, when it happens, it can be emotionally draining and confusing for both parties. Our family law attorneys strive to take some of the load off your back during the stressful legal process of divorce.
We will help you achieve the best possible outcome for you and your family.
Child support takes into consideration several factors like the number of children, their parent’s individual incomes, custody, support obligations, and healthcare costs, among other things. A Leland Family Lawyer can help you ensure your children remain well taken care of.
Division of Assets
Most divorced couples contend over their assets and debts. North Carolina laws allow the court to decide on a fair, equitable, and reasonable division of assets on behalf of the ex-spouses if they cannot agree. We will work to ensure that you are not taken advantage of and that you get what you deserve.
The possibility that a marriage could end is an unwelcome but necessary consideration. We can help you protect your interests long-term by helping you draft a reasonable prenuptial agreement. This should safeguard your business assets and properties in the event of a divorce.
Paternity Issues and Custody
Paternity issues can arise where children are born outside marriage. Some fathers may wish to deny or claim responsibility for children wrongfully. We can work with you to legally establish paternity and get your children the support they need.
