Domestic or Family Law embodies many issues. Family Law includes issues such as divorce, custody, visitation, separation agreements, premarital agreements, and division of martial property. Many people attempt to tackle these issues alone and without the assistance of counsel. While there are many Do-It-Yourself guides online, these are no substitute for personalized legal advice from a licensed attorney. In fact, many of these guides are not state specific and may not follow North Carolina law.
There are actions and remedies that you may be forfeiting if you do not file them on time. Before starting any domestic case, you should speak with a North Carolina attorney who practices in this field to make sure you are protecting all of your legal interests. Once certain actions conclude, there is no going back, no do-overs. For example, after a divorce is finalized, if you do not have a pending equitable distribution case, you are no longer able to start this action.
You owe it to yourself to consult with an attorney and get advise before signing any agreement and/or prior to disposing of you domestic case.
