Domestic Law in Western North Carolina
The firm welcomes the opportunity to represent clients in matters of alimony, postseparation, equitable distribution, child custody, and child support cases, as well as divorce based upon one year’s separation. The firm represents both males and females. Depending on the case’s complexity, the firm may use one attorney with the help of a legal assistant to handle the case or may use the team approach with a senior attorney, younger attorney, and one or more legal assistants. Depending upon the facts, the attorneys may use the services of private investigators, forensic psychologists, child psychologists, forensic accountants, business evaluators, educators, and other experts to support the client’s case, as well as friends, neighbors, and family, depending on the individual case.
Providing Divorce Representation to Hendersonville
Clients will initially meet with one or more attorneys whose special interest is in the area of domestic law. The firm also offers educational videos on various aspects of domestic law that are available for viewing without cost at the firm’s office.
We charge fees on the basis of time expended by the attorney (hourly rate) with some advanced retainer fee. Though it is somewhat unusual, we may handle equitable distribution cases on a reasonable percentage fee. At the outset, the attorney and client will attempt to work through a tentative budget for the case. Not every client will need nor can afford all the experts that would be used in a “perfect world.” We will try our best to present the best case possible, within the mutually agreed upon budget. Although we pursue all cases aggressively, if the client believes that an amicable out-of-court settlement is possible, the firm will pursue this avenue before launching into litigation.
