Durham Family Law Attorney

Going through a divorce is a big project. Our mission is to guide you through the complexities and options of your process in a manner that protects your interests and preserves the emotional health of your family. Family Law encompasses a wide variety of issues, including, but not limited to:


Mediation is a means of ending a marriage amicably. Mediation provides a third party to help facilitate an agreement and is often the best way to decide important issues such as child support, property division, and alimony in a way that saves time and money. Learn more →

Collaborative Law

Working together during a divorce is the best way to reduce stress and save time and money. This isn’t always possible. Collaborative Divorce means that both parents sign an agreement to resolve any disputes outside of a courtroom. These agreements are reached through negotiation and collaboration. Learn more →

Separation Agreements

One important issue that must be addressed in a divorce is spousal support. Many forms of alimony exist. Who will pay alimony and what the amount will depend on a number of factors such as standard of living during the marriage, the length of the marriage, and financial resources of each party. Alimony can be awarded as temporary support or permanent support. Alimony is separate from child support, but child support is often considered when determining alimony payments. Learn more →

Working with a qualified and caring adoption attorney will help to ease the stress of the process and ensure approval by the court.

Situations can arise after divorce that requires either party to modify a standing agreement. These can include job loss, promotion, or other factors that might terminate, change or increase alimony payments, modifications of child support due to the child’s needs or the supporting parent’s work situations, and any changes due to relocation or other modifications of the current parenting plan.
