Know Your Rights Before You Take Action

In North Carolina, a couple may get an absolute divorce or a divorce from bed and board. For an absolute divorce, the parties must live in separate households for a year and at least one party must intend for the marriage to end. You do not need a legal separation agreement. However, if you want a separation agreement, we can draft one for you.

A divorce from bed and board is a different matter. In these cases, the divorce is a court-ordered separation based on the fault of the defendant and the innocence of the complaining party. Determining and proving marital fault can be a complex issue. We strongly recommend discussing this with a lawyer before making decisions.

In most cases, negotiation or mediation allows the parties to reach an agreement regarding property division, spousal support, child custody and child support. If a couple cannot agree on all issues, however, a trial may be necessary. We have the trial experience to protect your interests.
