Making The Divorce Process Just A Little Bit Easier
No one enters a marriage or starts a family thinking that it will end. But the fact is, for many reasons, many marriages do not work out. For many people, making the actual decision to get divorced is the most difficult step.
At Vavonese Law Firm, PC, founding attorney Jamie Vavonese understands that much anxiety is born of fear of the unknown. With a divorce, there are many unknowns: how much will it cost, how long will it take, who gets the house, and when will I see my kids? It can be paralyzing. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Get The Advocate Your Divorce Needs
Fear can be alleviated by knowledge. When you understand what is at stake, what your options are, and what are the steps, much of your fear will dissipate. Jaime Vavonese offers personal attention and service to your divorce so that you achieve meaningful and lasting results. Most importantly, you get the support and guidance you need to get peace of mind.
Experienced Guidance Through Many Facets Of Divorce
Whether you need legal guidance in filing for a simple, uncontested divorce or if your dissolution is more complex and requires longer-term attention, attorney Jamie Vavonese can help. Instead of going to court, some couples find that working together outside of he courtroom is a viable alternative. Reach out to her for representation with:
- Division of assets: North Carolina is an “equitable” division of assets state. This does not mean a 50-50 split, but rather a division that is fair considering your unique circumstances. Property can be marital or separate. Items that are marital property are those that both people share, such as a house, a checking account, furniture, and some retirement accounts or pensions. Separate property is typically property or assets that belonged only to one person, such as gifts, inherited property, or financial compensation awarded to one person in an injury lawsuit. The division of assets is also the division of debts. This can include bills, mortgages and loans, and the like.
- Alimony: There is no “formula” for the amount of alimony one spouse will pay to another after a divorce. Alimony is decided on a case-by-case basis.
- Child custody and support: The amount of child support you will pay or receive is based on a formula. This money is to be used to pay for their child’s food, clothing, housing, and other bills, according to the North Carolina Support Guidelines. Parents who do not pay child support or who have missed payments typically can continue visitation.
- Other common issues include domestic abuse and violence.
