Raleigh law firm offering a comprehensive approach to family changes

Hatch, Little & Bunn, LLP’s experienced family law attorneys help people make important decisions related to all aspects of separation and divorce, including:

  • Divorce — Helping clients through the process leading up to and through the filing for divorce, and assisting in protecting their interests, fairly dividing assets and custody of children.
  • Child custody — Custody and visitation can be contested; our family law attorneys can help clients draft custody agreements that support the welfare of their child now and in the future. When necessary, our experienced litigators assist clients in getting the best resolution possible at trial.
  • Child support — Ensuring that children receive the same support whether their parents are together or apart according to North Carolina law and the North Carolina Child Support Guidelines.
  • Division of property (“equitable distribution”) — The division of marital assets and debts assets is in theory supposed to be equal, but includes many exceptions where a skilled family law attorney can help best protect your interests. Our family law attorneys are experienced with complex financial matters and divisions of business ownerships, whether small businesses, franchises or corporations.
  • Alimony/Spousal support — Working to protect clients’ financial rights by developing post-separation (PSS) and alimony agreements or through litigation in court.

The above links, and definitions of family law terms, will take you to answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs) about how North Carolina law treats these aspects of divorce, and how our Wake County family law attorneys can provide you with the counsel and representation you need.

It is also important to know that we pride ourselves on the holistic approach we employ to meet the needs and concerns of every family law client. They often require integrated services, and thus benefit from our firm’s related practice area skills in real estate law, taxation and estate planning.
