Responsive lawyers deliver thorough divorce representation
Our firm assists clients throughout the divorce process, providing supportive advocacy and advice for issues including:
- Child custody — If you are involved in a custody dispute, we take every legal step possible to secure a resolution that is in your child’s best interests.
- Child support — Noncustodial parents are required to submit child support payments to help meet their children’s financial needs. Our lawyers work to make sure that information is accurate and that orders are enforced.

We offer an initial consultation so that you can develop an accurate overview of how your case will proceed.
Compassionate counsel for all types of adoption issues
Adopting a child should be a joyful experience, but the difficult legal processes involved often frustrate prospective parents. We provide authoritative advice for domestic adoptions. Whether you seek an open adoption where information is shared, or a closed adoption that excludes information between biological and adoptive parents, our lawyers will handle each detail efficiently and compassionately. Firm lawyers work with both public and private agencies and help with necessary paperwork, home visits and other legal requirements.
Legal advisers assist with prenuptial and postnuptial agreements
Establishing clear legal and financial arrangements ahead of time benefits both spouses if a marriage ends in divorce. Our firm works closely with clients on executing prenuptial and postnuptial agreements that create legal security for husbands and wives. A strong document includes detailed information about property division and can include provisions relating to business and retirement assets. By completing these agreements, spouses can understand the consequences when making important decisions and avert costly disputes. Even if you already have an agreement in place, the parties can choose to make modifications. Our lawyers can advise you on potential changes and legal challenges that may arise.
Effective litigators represent clients in paternity matters
Children are entitled to have the emotional and financial support of both parents. When a question involving paternity arises, our lawyers protect the rights of clients and their children in official proceedings. If parents are not married when a child is born, North Carolina permits paternity to be established through a voluntary Affidavit of Parentage, a subsequent marriage between the parents, or through a judicial decision. Whether you are trying to establish paternity or believe you have been wrongly identified as a child’s father, we can gather the relevant legal and scientific evidence to develop the strongest possible case.
Dedicated law firm litigates cases involving domestic violence
If you have been victimized by violence or threatened by someone you know, immediate action is necessary to protect yourself and your children. Our firm will petition the court on your behalf for a domestic violence protective order, which prevents contact between you and the person abusing or threatening you. North Carolina courts issue these orders on a temporary basis if an immediate danger exists. A final order can be entered after a hearing.
