Family Law in North and South Carolina
Specializing in All Things Family Law
Adoption is one of many ways to build a family. However, the adoption process is just that — a process. It involves mountains of paperwork, home visits, criminal background checks, interviews and more. Ultimately, an adoption can also take anywhere from a few months to a few years. When you hire a family law attorney, you can spend more time processing your emotions and less time worrying about paperwork.
Unlike so many other firms, we put children first when it comes to family law matters. Whether you’re interested in getting physical or legal custody, we’ve helped thousands of families create a custody schedule that works for both parents and their children.
In the event of a divorce, all 50 states require both parents to continue financially supporting their child. As one of the most debated topics in family law, we believe that with the right team of lawyers, child support can be settled amicably and without the need for multiple (and costly) court appearances.
After getting married and moving, divorce is one of the most stressful experiences a person can go through. And because a divorce can have such a significant impact on your future, it’s important to work with an attorney that will fight for your needs today and tomorrow. Whether you and your current spouse are ending your relationship amicably or you’re undergoing a lengthy legal battle, the women of Blood Law take an individualized approach to every case.
Divorces don’t have to be a battle between two people looking to “win.” Mediation gives divorcing couples the opportunity to work together and come to an agreement on complicated issues. Ultimately, mediation gives you more control, more privacy, and enhanced support.
Especially if you and your spouse got divorced when your children were very young, there’s a good chance that your past custody and support agreements will need to be adjusted at some point. In the event of an illness, job loss, or other significant life change, a modification can change the terms of your current agreements.
Property and Debt Division
How your assets are divided will have an effect on you for the rest of your life, so it’s important to fight for what you deserve. As an equitable distribution state, North Carolina courts will justly divide your assets in the event you and your spouse aren’t able to come to an agreement.
Though same-sex divorce is far less complicated than it was years ago, it can still be challenging for couples who married or entered into a domestic partnership before The Obergefell v. Hodges U.S. Supreme Court ruling in 2015 brought marriage equality to all.
Divorce may be the more common option, but separation is still a viable choice for many married couples who no longer want to be together. People are drawn to separation because it’s not a legal divorce, meaning couples can maintain their tax benefits and health insurance, and more.
Spousal support is not as common as it once was, however many men and women still qualify for it in the event of a divorce. If you’re interested in fighting for spousal support (alimony), we’ll walk you through every step and determine your options to help protect you and your loved ones.
