Experienced North Carolina Divorce Lawyers
If you are considering separating or ending your marriage, it is critical to discuss your circumstances with a dependable and experienced divorce attorney in Raleigh to protect your rights. At Sandlin Family Law, our lawyers know what it takes to help you through the process of a divorce, including working through the difficult issues of child custody, alimony and property division. We empower you to make decisions that bring a positive change to your life.
In North Carolina, an absolute divorce is available after one year’s separation. Once you and your spouse have lived continuously apart for at least twelve months, without resuming the marital relationship, either of you may file for an absolute divorce.
Our experienced divorce attorneys are available to help you in a number of areas, including:
- Child custody. The future of your children is of utmost importance and you need to ensure that your kids grow up in a stable and nurturing environment. We help you establish a custody arrangement that’s beneficial to your children but also fair to you.
- Child support. If you’re awarded sole or primary custody, you are also likely eligible to receive child support payments from your ex-spouse. If you are obligated to pay child support, we will ensure that the amount you must pay is fair and reasonable.
- Alimony. A divorce should not mean that you have to go through significant financial struggles. We represent dependent spouses in need of spousal support in order to continue to live comfortably, as well as supporting spouses who want to avoid paying alimony or pay only what’s absolutely necessary.
- Property division. The process of dividing marital property and debt, known as “equitable distribution,” can be complicated, especially if a couple was married for a long time. Our experienced Raleigh divorce attorneys will guide you through this process.
