Prior to calling our Charlotte divorce lawyers, some clients seem to spend a fair amount of time gathering information, and advice, from friends, family, and even co-workers.
That’s normal. Weighing your options makes sense.
In fact, you may not even be sure you want to separate or get divorced.
Unfortunately, as well-meaning as people may be, the advice given is all too often entirely inapplicable, if not flat-out wrong.
In some instances, the advice offered by friends and family, if followed, might result in substantial problems in the future.
As such, if you’re in the formative stages of separation or even considering a divorce, it makes sense to talk with a family law attorney.
If you live in Charlotte, we think it’s a good idea to consult with a Charlotte divorce lawyer. Mecklenburg County family court has Local Rules of Domestic Court.
They’re 34 pages long and involve the intricacies of unique aspects of family court in the 26th Judicial District.
While Chapter 50 sets forth general parameters of the NC divorce laws, Charlotte attorneys, unlike some other jurisdictions, work very closely with the TCA’s Office (the Trial Court Administrator) in setting hearings and resolving scheduling issues.
A lot of the rules and procedures are due to the size of Mecklenburg County and the sometimes overwhelming number of family court filings in Charlotte.
