In North Carolina, all insurance companies are governed by the North Carolina Rate Bureau.

Mediation Law

Family law attorneys in Wake County are often more interested in posturing than resolving family law disputes. As a result, they often employ hard bargaining tactics that emphasize the differences in their positions rather than seeking a common ground for settlement. This technique often results in one of the parties filing a Complaint in court, which commences litigation. The high cost and long delays associated with the Wake County Family Court System often make litigation an impractical method of resolving disputes. Parties increasingly find that they are spending more time and money to litigate than the cost to settle the matter. The increasing number of lawsuits filed each year is indicative of the unwillingness or inability of parties and their attorneys to utilize negotiation to resolve disputes effectively. It is not uncommon for the attorney’s fees, expert witness fees, jury fees, court reporter fees, and other related costs to exceed the amount in dispute. However, there is a practicable alternative.

A North Carolina family mediator is a neutral person who guides the parties toward a workable solution on their issues. The Law Corner’s trusted family mediators help the parties reach an agreement that is acceptable to all parties. The family mediator is typically a lawyer who exclusively practices in the area of Raleigh Family Law. The mediator has the legal knowledge necessary to frame the legal issues and is trained to help parties explore the options in order to decide on a mutually acceptable separation agreement. The Raleigh mediation attorney will help the parties think about the possible advantages and disadvantages of a proposed solution. The Raleigh mediator focuses the parties on future goals to help avoid future disputes.

Collaborative Law

The word “law” in collaborative law is misleading. It would be more appropriate to use the word “approach” rather than the word “law.” Collaborative law refers to an approach or a process of resolving the legal issues that arise during the parties’ separation. The premise of collaborative law is to allow for a peaceable resolution through a process of joint participation versus the adversarial system of litigation that everyone expects. The most typical legal issues that are addressed through the collaborative law process are post-separation support, alimony, child custody & visitation, child support, and the division of assets and debts.

 

Here in Wake County, the primary feature of the collaborative law process is the involvement of Raleigh Family Law attorneys on both sides of the dispute who have committed to handling the case within the guidelines of the collaborative law model

Wake Forest Separation Agreements

When either of you have decided that “it’s over,” you need to consider entering into what is commonly known as a Separation Agreement or Property Settlement and Separation Agreement. A Separation Agreement is a contract in writing between husband and wife that is signed and notarized. It may resolve all issues relating to child custody, child support, division of property and debt, and alimony. In North Carolina, you must be living separate and apart for one year in order to be granted a legal divorce. During that one year waiting period, you want to protect yourself from the actions and inaction of your estranged spouse. The best advice I can give you is to ignore everything you hear from your friends, neighbors, and co-workers and seek the advice of an attorney.

Spousal Agreements Modifications Attorney

Parents can write out the provisions of child support in a Separation Agreement in North Carolina. If a parent believes he or she will have trouble receiving regular child support payments, it may be necessary to ask the Court to order payments. A claim for child support can be filed at any time while the child is a minor and is always modifiable. The amount of child support is typically reviewed every three years or upon a significant change in circumstances such as loss of employment or a temporary or permanent disability.

In Raleigh, North Carolina parents have equal rights to the custody of their children born of the marriage.

However, when parents cannot agree on custody arrangements, the Court will make decisions concerning custody based on what is in the best interest and welfare of the child.
