Raleigh residents curious about divorce often ask: What’s the first thing I should do?
Divorce is not an easy or swift path, which is why people often search for other ways to separate from a spouse. In addition to the religious and spiritual aspects of a marriage, the union is also a legal agreement, which gives both parties new rights and obligations. That means there is a legal process for separating.
Divorce affects a lot of people. Of course the two partners and spouse and children suffer the most impact, but parents and in-laws will also feel the change.
Choosing an attorney is difficult and it’s hard to know what questions to ask a divorce lawyer. You want to find someone who will be your advocate, fight for you, understand what you’re dealing with.
Divorce can be messy. That’s probably why our Raleigh Divorce Workshop is often asked this question: “How do I force him out of the house?”
Custody of the children is often one of the most contentious points in divorce. Unless one party fully agrees to give up custody, it can be a battle and will no doubt drive up the cost of your divorce.
Alimony is one of the aspects of divorce that concerns a lot of our workshop attendees. Paying money to someone you no longer love feels like being kicked when you are down. And if you’re not sure how you are going to make ends meet, the idea of paying someone is definitely going to cause stress.
Couples who are divorcing are often overwhelmed by all the organizing, planning, and paperwork required to untie the knot. One question we often hear at our divorce workshop is “How do we file the paperwork?”
For partners with children, child custody is one of the most important parts of divorce. Whether you and your partner are splitting amicably or not, you probably want the best for your children. That’s probably why it’s one of the most frequently asked questions in our divorce workshop each month.
