Divorce as a family matter is a painful, difficult, and trying process. However, as a legal matter, divorce can be done rather quickly and efficiently with the help of an attorney. North Carolina recognizes no-fault divorce. In other words, whether both spouses or only one spouse wants the divorce, the divorce will be granted as long as there has been a physical separation for more than one year. We offer low flat rates for Absolute Divorce, select below for rates, contracts, and more information.

Fighting. Chaos. Uncertainty. These are just a few of the words that describe what can happen when a marriage ends. The traditional divorce procedure − where each spouse hires an attorney to battle in court − only makes the situation worse.
Collaborative Law offers a different way for people to dissolve their marriage, a way that avoids the acrimony and bitterness that comes with litigation. In a collaborative divorce, each spouse hires his or her own attorney, but everyone agrees to stay out of court and resolve issues through respectful, constructive negotiation. In this way, divorce issues are decided without needless emotional trauma to the couple and to any children involved.

The statutes on support can be found at N.C.G.S. §50-16A et seq. There are two kinds of support available from the court – postseparation support (PSS) and alimony. Temporary alimony, or alimony pendente lite, no longer exists. Marital fault still exists – called marital misconduct now – but it is no longer a prerequisite for spousal support. Adultery no longer exists as a ground for alimony (or postseparation support), – but illicit sexual behavior does and it is much broade than adultery. The law on PSS and alimony are now primarily need dependent. There must be a dependent spouse and a supporting spouse and the dependent spouse must be substantially dependent upon the supporting spouse in order for the court to award PSS or Alimony.
