Divorce

Whether you’re considering divorce, are ready to file for divorce, or have had divorce paperwork served on you, our divorce attorneys in Raleigh, NC are here to help.

We will walk you through the do’s and don’ts, and we will provide you with information about the legal rights and options available to you.  Although there are many do-it-yourself divorce guides online, we recommend you speak with an attorney first before attempting to handle your own divorce.

Child Custody

When two people end a relationship but have a child together, sorting out child custody arrangements can be one of the most difficult and emotional parts of the separation.

An experienced child custody lawyer can help walk you through the child custody process. At McNeil Law Firm, our child custody lawyers fight for our clients. We don’t back down, and we’ll be with you every step of the way. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.

Both parents of a child are required to provide for the child. Under North Carolina law, one party may be required to make child support payments to the other party.

Prenuptial Agreements

A prenuptial agreement (often referred to as a “prenup”) is a document that two people sign before they get married. Although no one likes to think about it, divorce happens, and a prenup can help protect both parties in the event there is a divorce down the road. It is also helpful if one party dies during the marriage, especially if one or both parties have children from a prior marriage. Prenuptial agreements help protect both parties and can address things like debts that both parties bring into the marriage, property that one or both parties own prior to the marriage, how property will be divided in the event of a divorce or death, and more. To learn more about prenuptial agreements, contact the NC family law attorneys at McNeil Law Firm today.
