There is no easy way for a couple or family to split up. But sometimes, unfortunately, it is unavoidable. When it comes time for spouses in Fayetteville to go their separate ways, we at Devan & Null PLLC are here to guide them through the process and help them move on, with empathy and pragmatism. Years of legal and judicial experience have given Laura Devan the knowledge and the instincts to guide clients seamlessly through the complex domestic legal process, steering them through the most beneficial paths available under their particular circumstances.
Domestic relations cases are one of the most common types of disputes that North Carolina courts are called upon to resolve. That is why there are specialized rules and processes set up to help deal with these complex and sensitive matters.
The intricacy of domestic cases can vary greatly depending on a variety of factors such as the wealth and earning power of the parties, whether or not there are children involved, the reasons for the separation, and the nature of the present relationship between the parties. There are several common issues, however, that are likely to arise:
These issues and others that come up during the litigation process can tear a family apart if they are not handled properly. Our firm is mindful of the ways in which all family members are affected by a divorce, custody battle, alimony dispute, or other argument. We do everything possible to help achieve solutions that satisfy everyone’s best interests.
While the atmosphere of much family law litigation is one of compromise, cases involving domestic violence are often contentious. Domestic Violence can be an important factor in deciding child custody, property division, and alimony issues. Unfortunately, this also means that people sometimes use false accusations of domestic violence to gain an advantage. Victims of domestic violence, as well as those facing false or trumped-up accusations of domestic violence, need strong and experienced advocates to make sure their rights are preserved.
On the other side of the spectrum, just because separating couples do not agree does not mean litigation is their only option. Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) has become an increasingly popular and effective method for working out domestic disagreements without referring the matter to the courts. Our attorneys encourage these methods when appropriate for our clients.
