What a divorce can do for you in North Carolina

What can a divorce do for you? It can help you split up from a spouse who you no longer want to be in a relationship with and give you legal separation from that person.

A divorce can help you with property division, which must be determined before the divorce can be completed. If you and your spouse can't decide on how to split your property, then the court can do this for you. In some states, a division of property will be 50/50, but in North Carolina, your property will be divided equitably. That means that it is divided as fairly as possible. The division of your assets may not be predictable, which is why it's important to work with your attorney to negotiate a settlement before heading to court.

Another thing that divorce can help you with is support obligations. Both child and spousal support will be determined before the divorce can be finalized. For the most part, child support guidelines are defined by the state, and support guidelines for alimony will be determined based on the couple's financial situation. Again, it's important to review and negotiate terms for support, because it can be hard to predict what a court will decide if you decide to allow the judge to make a ruling.

Our website has more information on divorces and what they can help you achieve as you split up. Divorces aren't the only option, but they can help you legally separate yourself from your partner, so you can move on with your own private life.
