Compassionate With Clients, Protective Of Their Interests
North Carolina law recognizes different divorce processes: absolute divorce and divorce from bed and board. To qualify for an absolute divorce the parties must live in separate residences for one-year before seeking the dissolution. At least one of the spouses must intend to end the marriage as well to qualify for an absolute divorce. While a formal legal separation agreement is not required to prove the timing and length of the separation agreement, the contract may define obligations. If you choose to create a separation agreement, we can help.
In a divorce from bed and board, the court orders the separation of the parties based on the fault of one party. In this process, the spouse asserting fault must be deemed personally clear of any grounds for a fault-based divorce. This can be a challenging legal process, so we suggest discussing it with one of the experienced divorce lawyers at Billick Rogers Family Law.

If you and your spouse cannot agree on issues, such as child custody or division of property or debt, mediation may be an option. However, litigation may be the only answer for a contested divorce. We will protect your rights in negotiations and at trial.
