Greater Charlotte Divorce Attorneys

If you are in the middle of a divorce process, you may be dealing with a mix of emotional and financial issues, from the very personal to the extremely practical. An Absolute Divorce is one of the more practical aspects of the divorce process in North Carolina, but don’t go it ALONE. Many families attempt to navigate this process without the representation and advice of an attorney, and they have waived their right to alimony or property division in the process.

Do no file for divorce without consulting with a laywer.

Absolute Divorce in North Carolina

Separation and absolute divorce are frequently misunderstood as being the same thing, and certain family law issues such as equitable distribution or alimony must be resolved, i.e. filed with the court and preserved, before the divorce judgment is entered. Absolute divorce is the legal termination of your marriage. It only dissolves your marriage, so you and your spouse are “single.”

This is a court-ordered judgment and does not address issues of property division, child custody, child support, or alimony. In fact, a divorce judgment is NOT intended to resolve issues like child custody, child or spousal support, or property division which MUST be handled separately.

Property Division

We protect our client’s assets no matter the size.


Child Custody & Support

The children’s best interests are always of the highest priority.



We work to get our clients the alimony they deserve.


Have you lived separately from your spouse for a year?

Living separately means “under two separate roofs” not “two separate beds.”


If you find yourself deciding to dissolve your marriage, the more informed you are about your rights and options, the better the outcome will be.

  • North Carolina is a “no-fault divorce” state, meaning that the only proof needed is the separation and the intent to remain permanently separate.
  • You do not need a separation agreement or any other document to be “separated” and start the clock ticking for the one-year-and-a-day rule; however, without a separation agreement in place your property and alimony rights could be waived.
