Working Together Whenever Possible
While North Carolina law requires that all divorce cases attempt to be resolved through mediation, our firm often works to see that this approach is successful. We believe that it is better for divorcing parties to work through the details of the case outside of the courtroom in order to minimize the additional stress of the process. This is often a better way to help children cope with the divorce and limit the impact to them. Our founding attorney can confidently handle all aspects of the mediation process, including representing parties for property mediation.
We know that not every case is right for mediation. Some situations require the matter to progress to court in order to be resolved by a judge. In these situations, we do not back down. Ms. Benton is experienced in handling divorce cases in court and can litigate the matter to the fullest extent whenever necessary.
