About Me Services Practice Resources Our Staff Contacts

Mike handles many divorce cases each year and he keeps abreast of the changes that occur in this area. The break-up of a marriage is traumatic for all parties concerned, including children, and Mike understands the difficult strains placed on his clients during the divorce process.


NC law provides that parties must live continuously separate and apart for at least one year prior to filing for a divorce.
The alimony laws in NC changed dramatically in 1997 and a party forfeits their rights to seek and obtain alimony unless an action or claim for alimony is filed prior to or as a part of the divorce.
Property division can often be a difficult process as the goal of equitably dividing assets is often cumbersome. Parties likewise can forfeit their rights to an equitable and fair division of assets unless their claim is made as part of the divorce or prior to divorce. © 2007
