Custody and Child Support

Our Greensboro attorneys are certified specialists in family law and can help you navigate child custody and child support issues. In North Carolina, courts often grant grandparents custody or visitation. Child custody has the potential to be contested. Attorney Carolyn Woodruff and the team of experts at Woodruff Family Law Group work to protect the children's best interests as part of our overall mission. If you are a grandparent, our experienced family law attorneys can help you navigate your rights to custody or visitation. Learn more.

Property Division

The division of property in a divorce case is known as equitable distribution. Equitable distribution is one of the most critical issues that family law and divorce attorneys handle in Greensboro, High Point, Winston-Salem, Asheboro, Reidsville, Burlington, Danbury, Yanceyville, and other areas across the state. North Carolina presumes in equitable distribution in a divorce case that all marital property is divided equally between both parties. Our experienced attorneys can help you negotiate effectively during the distribution of property, including pensions and retirement accounts. Learn more.

Spousal Support

The term Spousal Support refers to both alimony and post-separation support. Alimony is rehabilitative form of spousal support, while post-separation support is temporary. The main difference between the two is the timeframe. In North Carolina, alimony is a type of spousal support that provides for the maintenance of a dependent spouse by the supporting spouse. Our Greensboro lawyers have experience with spousal support. It is crucial to seek advice from a family lawyer before filing for divorce if you seek spousal support! Our experienced attorneys can help guide you. Learn more.

At Woodruff Family Law Group, we have attorneys experienced in handling appellate work. Our experienced lawyers in the Piedmont Triad know and understand the technical requirements that need to be followed in appellate work. We handle appeals all over the state of North Carolina. Learn more.

Alienation and Other Civil Actions

Issues that arise during divorce can be far-reaching, including potential claims for alienation of affection and criminal conversation. Civil claims can be pursued against a third party for destroying your loving relationship with your spouse. Our experienced family law specialists can help you evaluate whether you have such a claim. We also defend claims if you have been sued for alienation of affection.

Trials/Mediation/Collaborative

The experienced attorneys at Woodruff Family Law Group handle all types of dispute resolutions, proceedings, and agreements. Mediation is the first step in most divorce and custody cases in North Carolina. If your objectives are not met during mediation, the next step is preparing for a family law trial, which is a court proceeding. Collaborative law and arbitration involve negotiation where both parties have agreed to a collaborative process that ends with either an agreement, an arbitration, or a trial. Learn more.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Carolyn Woodruff was tenacious, knowledgeable, and thorough. She and her team helped me check my emotions at the door and handle this as a business transaction. Quite often I would have questions or need documents explained to me, and both Steve and Ben did a good job explaining things. The firm was welcoming, and the support staff were friendly, professional, and helpful. D.M.
★★★★★
When we met Jon Csuka, he went over everything for the prenup well and was very quick to get the document to us. He knows what he’s doing, and knew exactly what we were doing. He would follow up with me when I wasn’t responding and stayed on top of me, making sure we were getting everything done. V.B.
★★★★★
Taylor Clay was phenomenal. You weren’t just another person walking in with the same story, she was someone who really cared. I loved that every time I needed an answer, she was back to me within a few hours that day. I spoke to Josh a few times, he was very thoughtful, and he was the same – just very thoughtful, if he couldn’t answer a question legally he would advise me what to do with talking to Taylor and always made sure everything was taken care of.
