The Basics Of Divorce
In North Carolina, couples must live separate and apart for a year before filing for divorce. During that one-year period, couples can try to resolve divorce-related matters such as property, support and custody issues through a Separation Agreement, Parenting Agreement or mediation that could make the process quicker and easier than it otherwise would be. You can and should work with a family law attorney during this period to resolve your particular issues so that you may move on to your new life.
Separation Agreements and Their Benefits
A Separation Agreement sets out the respective rights and obligations of a separating couple when their marriage ends without the need for going through Court. Such an Agreement may resolve many details related to the divorce process, such as:
- Equitable distribution or property division: Assets and debts accumulated during the marriage are divided fairly
- Child custody and child support: Negotiating child custody matters among parents and obtaining fair child support payments need not wait for a court to determine.
- Spousal support (alimony): Evaluating legal grounds which determine the right to receive or the requirement to pay spousal support, for how long and how much
