Divorce

How to Prepare

Divorce is both an emotional transition and a complex business transaction; we can help you get through it.

Counseling and Settlement Services

Divorce is an emotional transition and a complex business transaction. Gailor Hunt maintains close, professional associations with many counselors and therapists.

Separation

Legal separation occurs on the date you and your spouse move into separate residences with the intent to continue living separate and apart from each other.  Moving out without a plan can have a negative impact on your case.

Child Custody

One of the most litigated issues that can arise during a divorce is child custody and visitation. North Carolina law provides that custody determinations are to be made in the best interests of the child.

Child Support

In North Carolina, parents have a legal duty to financially support their children until they reach 18 years of age and have graduated from high school.

Alimony

In North Carolina, alimony can be paid in a lump sum or in a continuing, monthly basis.  There is no formula for determining the amount and duration of alimony; that determination is up to the discretion of the judge.

Final Divorce

If you’ve been a resident of the state for six months and physically separated from your spouse for one year, then you’re eligible for a divorce.

Annulments

In North Carolina, annulment is a highly unusual circumstance. In effect to annul a marriage means to void the marriage.

Property and Debt Division

During a marriage, spouses generally acquire property, whether it’s a home, cars, bank accounts, a business, IRAs or stock options.
